Vivo unveils first in-display fingerprint smartphone at CES 2018

Many tech enthusiasts had the opportunity to check the technology at the CES 2018 show floor. Whereas others, just trans-locate the fingerprint scanner to the back, either beside the primary camera or below it, either way there are more chances of users accidently touching the lens-cover and leave sweaty smudges on it, resulting in distorted images. A graphical UI will show up on Vivo's smartphone screen in any scenario that fingerprint recognition is required, such as when the screen is off, during software unlocking, or even mobile payment authentication.

In a statement Vivo said the fingerprint scanning technology showcased at CES was a "whole new mobile experience".

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. Vivo SVP Alex Feng said of the device, "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon".

The recent fingerprint scanning technology aims to offer users a better and a more convenient way in terms of fingerprint authentication experiences.

Today vivo confirmed rumors from yesterday and showcased the device in Las Vegas, becoming the first company in the world to implement the technology in a smartphone. Right now the company hasn't revealed any specs or the pricing details of the device but Vivo says the device is ready for mass production. As for Apple, the tech giant chose to take a different approach for the iPhone X. Apple used its own facial recognition tech called Face ID and just completely ditched its Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Now, it seems like Vivo is the only brand moving aggressively towards the in-screen biometric scanner technology.

At the time when Face recognition technology is replacing the fingerprint sensor, Vivo wants to revolutionize the fingerprint sensor again. Then, in November, Synaptics announced its Clear ID in-display fingerprint sensors, and said a "top five" smartphone OEM would use it in 2018.

The optical process works by having the OLED screen light up, with that light reflecting on your fingerprint.
