Hands-on with vivo's in-display fingerprint scanner

Vivo and not Samsung to launch first phone with an in-screen fingerprint sensor in 2018 Synaptics to ship in-display fingerprint sensors with Vivo smartphones

After all, that's where most phone makers introduce their latest and greatest smartphones yet - the ideal event for vivo to introduce the new technology on its new smartphone. But as the competition became intense, Synaptics started to actively develop in-display fingerprint sensing technology, says TrendForce. That's because it essentially is an optical sensor which lights up the specific spot on the display when a finger is pressed against it.

The Sensor Company Synaptics, which has demoed the Vivo phone in a crowded booth, goes on to inform us that the fingerprint reader will not use a lot of battery.

Now we just have to see how numerous major players in the smartphone space are willing to give a few tenths to get perhaps a more aesthetically pleasing device.

According to statistics from global consultancy Canalys, smartphone vendors shipped 22 million full-screen smartphones worldwide in the second quarter in 2017, up from 700,000 in the first quarter of this year.

"In Vivo's R&D plan, fingerprint scanning will not be carried out by an independent button or region". "Today's showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience". A graphical UI will show up on Vivo's smartphone screen in any scenario that fingerprint recognition is required, such as when the screen is off, during software unlocking, or even mobile payment authentication. "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon", he added.

House passes pot compromise in spite of federal threat
Scott had vetoed an earlier version of the bill, but his concerns were addressed in the revised legislation that passed Wednesday. A bill that would make marijuana legal for adults in Vermont received its final approval Wednesday from the Vermont Senate.


Using it was as natural as you't want it to be: I just held my finger over a lit-up area on the Vivo phone's screen, and it unlocked quickly and consistently.

Fingerprint sensors will still be the first choice for most Android phones in 2018, since other biometric authentication methods available for Android phone-makers can not completely replace fingerprint identification yet.

From edge-to-edge display to narrowing bezels, there's just no room left to put a fingerprint sensor on the front panel of a smartphone anymore. It also enables quick and secured authentication.

Vivo has launched a smartphone with an in-glass sensor, and tech reviewers like it. The availability of Vivo's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018.
