Vivo shows first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner at CES

The Vivo X9

The world saw its first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone, today at CES 2018, courtesy of Vivo.

(It doesn't work in LCDs due to their need for a backlight.) Synaptics said that it's already begun mass production of the Clear ID sensors, and that as many as 70 million units will be made available to OEMs this year.

While it's been sometime Synaptics had announced the breakthrough in developing in-screen fingerprint sensor, Vivo has the crown of being the first to offer the tech in a workable phone.

The in-display fingerprint scanner sits below the glass cover and OLED panel of the smartphone screen, but above the phone's printed circuit board (PCB). This technology is being considered as the future of fingerprint scanning in smartphones.

"With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology".

Fingerprint recognition is well-known biometrics to secure smartphones. A graphical UI, designed exclusively for this goal will be shown up on the screen of these smartphones when the fingerprint recognition is needed. Users can press the fingerprint graphic on the screen to perform unlocking, payment and other operations. You just need to tap on the display instead of using exclusive fingerprint sensor located on the physical home button and the rear. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the UI will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience. It can also be used to authenticate payments. The smartphone is a demonstration of the company's continued commitment to providing its consumers an extraordinary user experience. Since this device has a new technology, it's frustrating to know that users have to experience a slight lag.

To begin with, the new Vivo smartphone with fingerprint sensor on the display will be made available in China followed by other markets.

Vivo senior vice president Alex Feng confirmed the technology be available in a smartphone which will be announced early 2018, possibly at Mobile World Congress next month.

At the moment, the feature is still on a prototype device and vivo says they will have it on a real production smartphone very soon.
