New Vivo Smartphone Has Fingerprint Scanner In The Display

We tried the world's first in-screen fingerprint reader and it worked fine Synaptics to ship in-display fingerprint sensors with Vivo smartphones

The phone was unveiled by the Chinese device manufacturer at the ongoing Consumer Electronic Show 2018 (CES 2018).

At CES 2018, we saw Vivo launching the world's first phone with a fingerprint scanner that has been built into the display. Users will then only need to place their fingerprints on top of the icon for authentication. Recently, Vivo defeated their competition as they unleashed a groundbreaking new feature which grants its users the ultimate protection against any form of theft.

The particular device however does not have an official name as yet though Vivo officials have confirmed the handset is destined to reach markets sometime soon.

As to the technical part and the chip itself, it is the new Synaptics Clear ID FS9500, a tiny chip the size of a fingernail created to work with phones with an 18:9 and 20:9 orientation. This technology was rumoured to be launched in iPhone X and also in Samsung Galaxy S8, but none of the company has yet launched it.

This tiny chip- the size of a fingernail and just 0.69mm thick- sits invisibly below the AMOLED screen and makes the magic possible

At the end of 2016, it notes, Synaptics released UnderGlass, an optical solution for fingerprint sensing, which overcomes the limitation that capacitive solutions can not sense through the glass panel of phones. The company is most likely powering some of the devices you have, and it specialized in touch controllers, fingerprint sensors, integrated touch and displays, digital headset SoCs, Multimedia and Video Processing and Imaging. After more than a year of development, Synaptics' optical solutions of in-display fingerprint sensing have the chance to enter mass production due to the increasing yield rate of Synaptics and other related companies.

However, maybe you prefer fingerprint sensor over even a state-of-the-art face unlocking like Face ID, and you definitely want it in the front because you need to unlock the phone a billion times a day while it's laying on the desk, and you still want a huge display that takes up almost all the room from the front face of the phone. Presumably, the phone makers home market of China would be the first in line to buy one of these phones.

The new technology costs more in the making, and hence, it will be available first in the premium phones, and then make its way to lower end budgeted phone.

Vivo first showed off its under-screen fingerprint technology back in MWC Shanghai 2017. Cheers to a new beginning.
