Vivo claims that the latest fingerprint scanning technology delivers a whole new mobile experience by enabling users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display, while solving the industry's challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.

As for the technology behind it, Vivo provided the scheme above, which coincides with Synaptics Clear ID FS9500 sensor workings, aided by a dedicated interface that lights up when finger scanning is needed, but stays put when you are using the phone in a regular manner. The phone itself sports really thin bezels, and chances are that Synaptics actually partnered up with Vivo in order to show off its in-display fingerprint scanner, and Vivo created a phone for them, though it's still unclear what is the phone's name. It is notable that in-display fingerprint sensor will surely affect the thickness phone. It is also said to be scratch proof and waterproof since it is covered with a glass. The under-display fingerprint sits between the OLED panel and the mainboard. Vivo has mentioned that the availability of Vivo's first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018. While rear-mounted fingerprint scanners are all well and good, there are people who just like it on the front of the smartphone. Ever since the Apple's iPhone X renders started came out, the device was expected to launch with an in-screen fingerprint scanner, unfortunately, it didn't. It seems like the display needs to be active in order for the fingerprint image to appear, after which it is active.

We are pretty excited about this new tech and would certainly love to see more and more smartphones with in-display fingerprint scanning technology making it to the market this year. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the fingerprint user interface will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience. The smartphone is said to launch in the first half of this year.
