Vivo Showcases the World's First Smartphone with an In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

To this delight of fans, the company has showcased the same product at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

With the Home button sacrificed for a full-frontal display, Apple reportedly sought to integrate the sensor within the screen itself. The world's first smartphone with the under-display fingerprint reader technology is ready to debut the tech industry.

The mechanics of setting up your fingerprint on the phone and then using it to unlock the device and do things like authenticate payments are the same as with a traditional fingerprint sensor.

In July 2017, the China-based company teamed up with Qualcomm to demo an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor - one of the first commercial examples of in-display fingerprint scanning. This biometric sensor will be capable of recognizing fingerprint impression by touching on an OLED panel.

Back in December Synaptics announced a fingerprint scanner for smartphones that can be placed under the display.

Most players have eliminated side bezels on their smartphones like Samsung with its Galaxy S8, Note 8 devices, LG with its G6, V30+, Xiaomi with its Mi Mix and Mi Mix 2. The phone is also said to sport iPhone X-esque notch on the top. Meanwhile, a couple of days ago, an upcoming DOOGEE smartphone was leaked which was said to become the first device to achieve the technology. While rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are all well and good, there are people who just like it on the front of the smartphone. The technology aims to offer better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.

This is the first time a smartphone is having the fingerprint scanner on the display screen.

"With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President, Vivo.

"Today's showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone with an optical fingerprint sensor is a step forward in bringing consumers this futuristic mobile experience".
