The company is set to take the stage on January 10 to unveil a smartphone that will feature under display fingerprint sensor, a technology that has been highly expected for a while now. This smartphone will be launched in the first half of this year. These displays are typically edge-to-edge with a wide 18:9 aspect ratio.

The phone uses an optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics. (It doesn't work in LCDs due to their need for a backlight.) Synaptics said that it's already begun mass production of the Clear ID sensors, and that as many as 70 million units will be made available to OEMs this year. Well, fast forward to today, Vivo has showcased the world's first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanning at the ongoing CES 2018 tech show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Vivo may be the first to deliver this feature but the coming months are certain to see other OEMs follow suit, with Chinese brands like Leagoo and Doogee also said to have similar offerings in the works. Apple's iPhone X also has no side bezels. So, there is no need for a physical button. The company has been toying with in-screen fingerprint sensors for a while now. While rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are all well and good, there are people who just like it on the front of the smartphone.

According to a press statement from the company, this smartphone with the new fingerprint scanner technology is "ready-to-produce".
