Vivo to Launch The First Phone With an “in-screen Fingerprint Sensor”

When fingerprint sensors started rolling out in Android phones, many people thought that they've seen the best and probably the last of it. But Synaptics said otherwise earlier this week when they announced that they've cracked the problem of embedding fingerprint sensors into displays and is already mass-producing the tech for a “top-five” smartphone vendor and Vivo is the first.

The company's analyst, Patrick Moorhead detailed his experience with a pre-production Vivo phone equipped with the technology. Moorhead describes the sensor as “fast and simple,” while Synaptics claims it's twice as fast as 3D facial recognition like Apple's Face ID. However, it might be difficult to conclude to this claim because in-screen fingerprint and face ID do not use the same technology.

Vivo might not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of major smartphone vendors and makers, but it is indeed one of the world's biggest phone brands, ranking fifth in 2017 edition of IDC's Q1 report, and dropped one step to sixth in Q2, you could make the case for bundling it with fourth-placed Oppo since it shares the same parent company, BBK Electronics.

It'd be really nice if they become the first to launch phones that smartphones that support  “in-screen Fingerprint Sensor”. According to the prototype they showed off earlier before now, though the  “in-screen Fingerprint Sensor” actually works, it was said to be noticeably slow, and I believe they'd perfect the technology by 2018.
