Vivo to Be First Smartphone Maker With Synaptics' In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Posted December 18, 2017

As noted in the original article, recent leaks showing the fingerprint sensor on the rear of the handset suggested Synaptics' tech wouldn't debut in the Galaxy S9. Now it looks like Chinese smartphone maker Vivo will be the first manufacturer that will be able to use the technology for its smartphones. To unlock the phone, users will have to touch the display to activate fingerprint sensor and unlock the phone.

It is very intriguing as efforts were being made since very long to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the display and no one had ever imagined that Vivo will be the first to introduce the technology. When you pick up the phone, a fingerprint image will appear at the bottom of the screen and disappear after using it.

Samsung has been hard at work to implement an in-screen fingerprint sensor on its high-end flagship phones.

Terrible", Trump said. "People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said. The race is too close to call. "I had no encounter with them", he said.

Apple's iPhone X left some fans disappointed as a result of the lack of a front fingerprint sensor on the device.

In a post for Forbes, Analyst Patrick Moorhead detailed his experience with a pre-production Vivo smartphone equipped with Synaptics' in-display fingerprint sensor called Clear ID. The Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ were supposed to ship with one once upon a time but because the technology needed some more work before going full commando Samsung reportedly ditched the idea and instead went for a fingerprint scanner on the back.

"The Clear ID experience was fast and simple", McDonald said in an opinion piece. It is designed for all phones with an infinity display and is faster than other biometric security features, including Apple's Face ID. Somewhere in June, a report emerged claiming that Vivo, a company owned by BBK Electronics and has so far confirmed its plans to enter the Kenyan market in early 2018, would be the first to use this technology. According to the company statement, the sensors are twice as fast as 3D facial recognition and require only one touch to access the smartphone. He also indirectly talked about the iPhone X, which relies on FaceID authentication. The ultimate advantage of opting for in-display sensors would be the let manufacturers bring more full-screen smartphones in the coming future, complete with the ease of a front-facing fingerprint sensor.
