Vivo Shows Off a Phone with In-Display Fingerprint Scanner

Vivo Shows Off a Phone with In-Display Fingerprint Scanner

The new in-screen fingerprint sensor technology is also expected to be just as good, or maybe even better than the capacitive fingerprint scanning technology now in use in most Android handsets. Leading with distinct innovative breakthroughs, the in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone offers its consumers an unprecedented mobile experience, defining a new era of mobile interaction. Godfrey let us play with the phone and, honestly, it works like a magic.

The best thing about this implementation of a fingerprint scanner is that it looks practically invisible.

According to statistics from global consultancy Canalys, smartphone vendors shipped 22 million full-screen smartphones worldwide in the second quarter in 2017, up from 700,000 in the first quarter of this year. 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.

"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".

This new Vivo smartphone is a prototype at the moment although the companion as said that the handset is ready to go into production. "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon".

As you touch the screen, the lit-up fingerprint is then reflected into an in-display fingerprint sensor which is then authenticated. Even Apple had to drop this idea of under-the-display for their flagship iPhone X. But it's 2018 and Vivo has made this tech into reality as they have unveiled the first-ever under-the-display fingerprint smartphone at CES 2018. Once the fingerprint is registered, unlocking the phone works just fine, like any other physical fingerprint sensors. You can find out more details about this new technology over at Vivo at the link below.

The Chinese firm had announced past year that they had developed the "in-display fingerprint scanning" technology for a prototype phone in China.

Talking about the working, the company uses an ultrasonic sensor underneath the display and follows the principle of piezoelectric effects. The availability of Vivo's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018.
