  • Vivo's Groundbreaking Fingerprint Sensor is Changing the Smartphone World

For now, the under-the-display fingerprint sensor works with only OLED displays.

Recently, Synaptics released new in-display fingerprint sensing solutions for AMOLED panels. 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.

The showcasing of the world's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone (ready for mass-production) marks a significant leap forward in the industry's development, taking users' smartphone experience to a new level.

Vivo's Groundbreaking Fingerprint Sensor is Changing the Smartphone World

Most phones use capacitive sensors for their fingerprint readers, which require your finger to have a pulse to be read. Vivo has been working on an in-display fingerprint sensor for the last couple of years.

We're talking less than a second, so you're not left waiting around, but for those used to rapid fingerprint unlocks you're likely to notice the slight delay here.

In short, yes. It's a very similar process to any other fingerprint setup on a smartphone, only this time you're tapping your finger on an icon on the display, rather than a physical sensor.

Bus services across Tamil Nadu have taken a huge blow, leaving passengers stranded in the state. The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and Independent MLA TTV Dhinakaran opposed the bill.

We were able to register our fingerprint in around 30 seconds, and you can register multiple fingers.

Can I see it in action?

Many big-name technology companies, such as Samsung and Apple, have attempted to protect their consumers by offering various methods in order to lock your phone and ultimately keep your private information safe.

When does the phone launch, and can I get it?

At CES 2018, Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is on hand to show off the first ever phone with a fingerprint reader inside the display.

President Moon Jae-in has emphasized that the agreement is not accepted by the general public in Korea and called it "flawed". Those opposed to the 2015 deal want Japan to take legal responsibility and provide due compensation.

What's next for the technology?

This simple yet elegant feature of having a home button only when you need to unlock your phone will be quite popular among the users, and it seems that it will be the most popular trend in mobile phones this year, starting with the high-end devices such as the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S9.

Until then, what do you think of the under-screen fingerprint scanner? We are really impressed by Vivo and wish the company keeps bring new technology for all technology enthusiasts to enjoy.
