This year, the smartphone company is ready to launch its final product Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
"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", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President Vivo.
The Verge, which was able to go hands-on with the Vivo's in-display fingerprint sensor, reported that the process of setting up a fingerprint and using it unlock the device is the same as with conventional sensors.
Synaptics has first revealed this technology in December 2017 and the news had sparked speculation as to which smartphones would sport this particular technology. Vivo has mentioned that the availability of Vivo's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018. This biometric sensor will be capable of recognizing fingerprint impression by touching on an OLED panel. The new model may come with thinner bezels as the fingerprint sensor will move under the display. However, Synaptics' component is said to work with other devices like iPhone, LG, and Samsung. While rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are all well and good, there are people who just like it on the front of the smartphone. Apple however, completely removed the fingerprint scanner known as TouchID on iOS devices and is now relying on face recognition with the new FaceID feature.
CES 2018 is in full swing and is giving us a chance to witness the next generation technology products. The technology aims to offer better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.
We expect that the Vivo X20 will be the smartphone bearing the under-display fingerprint sensor.
Before this launch, last month, Synaptics announced that a "Tier 1" manufacturer will be introducing the said technology at CES 2018. It will allow users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the display itself.
