CES 2018 : Vivo Displays Fingerprint Scanner On Smartphone Display

The little-known firm has deployed the recently-revealed Synaptics optical sensor within a 6-inch handset, which it is showing off at CES 2018.

Few days ago Synaptics confirmed it has successfully created an in-display fingerprint scanner and the component is already in mass production by one of the top smartphone manufacturers. As for the iPhone X Plus, that continues to remain a mystery. This technology is being considered as the future of fingerprint scanning in smartphones.

The on-screen fingerprint feature is likely to see other Android phones follow suit as most major smartphone brands, including China's Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi, have eliminated the physical button to introduce so-called 18:9 full screens to meet demand for larger displays. Because every fingerprint scanner on smartphones nowadays are so tremendously fast and accurate, the delay on Vivo's phone feels more noticeable. She then placed her fingerprint on that icon, and the phone unlocked shortly thereafter.

If you want to get Clear ID into your hands, the Vivo device will be hard to come by in the U.S. (unless you're into the import game), but we'll certainly be on the lookout for other Android OEMs to incorporate this exciting tech. If you remember, previous year was filled with rumours about in-display fingerprint scanners, especially about Apple, coming up with an in-display fingerprint scanner in special anniversary edition iPhone.


"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".

The latest scanning technology will give users a new mobile experience as they can easily unlock their phone using a one-touch fingerprint scanning by placing their finger directly on their phone's display. Once the phone is unlocked, it goes away and allows the user to enjoy the whole display. If you may remember, the Vivo Xplay 7 was leaked with under display fingerprint sensor.

In their last keynote, Apple said that it took them courage to remove the 3.5-mm audio jack and the front fingerprint sensor button.

Possible reports point out that Vivo finally showcases the next-gen. biometric scanning technology implemented in Vivo smartphone and has been developed by Synaptics.
