Have a Look at the First Smartphone Featuring in-Display Fingerprint Sensor

While Samsung Galaxy S9 is still making its way for the in-display fingerprint sensor, there is yet another firm that shows off the first smartphone with a similar concept. Yes, Vivo punches out the top giants with the news of launching in-display fingerprint sensor at CES 2018.


Vivo in partnership with Synaptics is launching an in-display fingerprint sensor. This was in news a month ago, when Synaptics announced that Vivo will be its first customer. CES 2018 was a great platform for Vivo to show off the fingerprint sensor in action.

With the full-screen display concept, manufacturers are looking out for the option to place the fingerprint scanner. Previously, iPhone X was in news to feature an under display fingerprint sensor, but it was unable to pull it. Then South Korean giant was about to come up with this sensor in the second quarter of 2018.

But, unfortunately, Vivo wins the race and renders a video that shows a final prototype of the same. The Verge took a chance to test this clear ID fingerprint sensor.

The process works with OLED screen light up which in turn reflects your fingerprint and  sensor captures the image. The technology can even verify online mobile payments. Furthermore, Vivo is looking forward to including USB Type-C port at the bottom.

As of now we just have screen size which can be 6.2-inches, and everything else is unknown. Indeed, rumours suggest the device to feature a display design like iPhone X in the front and the rear end looks similar to rumoured Galaxy S9.


It is not clear of when this phone will reach the market or the cost. The name of the phone is still under the hood, but Vivo tells that it is ready to produce which means that you can have a first look at the smartphone somewhere in 2018.

Though Vivo is not well-known as the top giants Apple and Samsung. But the noteworthy feature of a Synaptics-built sensor in the upcoming smartphone will surely have an advantage over the tech giants.
