Hope you remember that Vivo showcased its Under Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution called Vivo Under Display in collaboration with Qualcomm Snapdragon at the MWC 2017 Shanghai few months back. The Vivo Under Display technology is based on an ultrasonic sensor.

And now Vivo unveiled the world’s first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone at the CES 2018 event. It uses an optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics instead of the ultrasonic sensor that we have seen earlier

Using this technology, users will be able unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning by putting the finger on the smartphone display. Due to this, the physical button for the fingerprint sensor will be no longer needed and it will help in having a full-screen display and a true unibody design.

Vivo has not revelaed the information about the its first phone that will come with this technology but the first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone by Vivo will be announced in early 2018.

Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo, said:
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. We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones.

Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon.
