The company says that the technology offers a more convenient way of unlocking your handset.
Vivo has worked in conjunction with Synaptics to make the first smartphone with a fingerprint scanner integrated into its display.
The technology is production-ready, according to Synaptics, which said it's been talking to vendors across the smartphone industry.
The push to slim down bezels on smartphones has brought us devices with bigger screens in a more manageable footprint, which is great.
Made in collaboration with Synaptics, the fingerprint sensor will only be "visible" when it is needed; a fingerprint icon will be shown on the display whenever the sensor is active. Synaptics late a year ago announced that it entered mass manufacturing with its optical in-display fingerprint sensors, called Clear ID.
"We are excited to announce QualcommFingerprint Sensors because they can be created to support sleeker, cutting-edge form factors, unique mobile authentication experiences, and enhanced security authentication", said Seshu Madhavapeddy, Qualcomm Technologies's vice president of product management.
Even then, it was announced that the first smartphone with such a feature will be unveiled at CES 2018.
The new technology also allows phones to be thinner, and the Vivo phone is certainly slim - which is good, because the huge display makes it both tall and wide.
You'll only know the sensor is there because the phone displays a fingerprint icon on-screen, prompting you to present your digit. The sensor seems to have been tested on various devices at CES. The prototype of the Vivo's under-display fingerprint technology includes Synaptics in-display fingerprint reader. Early reports claim this sensor is accurate and fast enough, but it can't match the speed and accuracy of the best dedicated fingerprint sensors.
Vivo's recently revealed smartphone hides the fingerprint scanner beneath the screen, re-imagining the handy feature that's posed a challenge to competitors. That way, you'll be able to place your fingers anywhere to unlock the phone. You can find out more details about this new technology over at Vivo at the link below. Device manufacturers were left with very little options, one of them being moving the fingerprint sensor towards the back of the phone - a move which received mostly negative reviews.
