CES 2018: Vivo Demonstrates In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology

10 January 2018

We already knew that Vivo is the company that partnered with Synaptics to launch the first smartphone in the world with a fingerprint sensor under the display, and CES 2018 confirmed it.

We've been talking about in-display fingerprint readers for what feels like quite some time now, but at long last, the tech is starting to catch up with our imagination. Vivo added that they'd announce availability of the first supported smartphone in early 2018.

The latest scanning technology will give users a new mobile experience as they can easily unlock their phone using a one-touch fingerprint scanning by placing their finger directly on their phone's display.

"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".

World's First Vivo Indisplay Fingerprint Smartphone is ready for mass production. A graphical UI, designed exclusively for this objective will be shown up on the screen of these smartphones when the fingerprint recognition is needed. The biggest difference is that users can place their finger on the screen to unlock their device, and that the sensor's a little slower to learn and authenticate fingerprints. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the UI will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience.

If you want to get Clear ID into your hands, the Vivo device will be hard to come by in the United States (unless you're into the import game), but we'll certainly be on the lookout for other Android OEMs to incorporate this exciting tech.

Full-screen displays are set to deliver a more immersive user experience for consumers as various interactions will be integrated and consolidated on the display. According to AndroidCentral, you'll need to apply a bit of pressure on the display so that your fingerprint is flattened out properly to be read by the optical sensor. It also enables quick and secure authentication. The new technology will be capable of detecting fingerprints up to 1.5mm thick with a screen protector. The first smartphone to feature the in-display fingerprint technology will be announced in the first half of 2018, the company said in a s tatement. It is still to be seen when the device will make a public appearance and how it performs in the real-life conditions.
