We expect that several different smartphone models from Vivo will be using this technology, but there are rumors claiming that the Galaxy Note 9 will be the first flagship from Samsung to get an in-display fingerprint sensor.

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. According to Synaptics estimates, almost 70 million units of in-display fingerprint sensors will be available for various manufacturers in 2018. Exactly when that will be, Vivo said they will make the announcement about that bit of information early 2018.

"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".

After testing out Synaptics' Clear ID, my money is on fingerprint readers not being ditched for facial recognition anytime soon, considering it remains ultimately more convenient than holding a phone up to your face.

The Synaptics in-display fingerprint sensor works by peering through the gaps between pixels in an OLED display to scan users' fingers.

"This f*cking idiot is the president" - Robert De Niro's speech in full
It wasn't the first time that De Niro has gone off script and launched into a profane tirade against Trump . Some praised him for his honesty, while others pointed out that Trump is a celebrity himself.

A graphical UI will show up on Vivo's smartphone screen in any scenario that fingerprint recognition is required, such as when the screen is off, during software unlocking, or mobile payment authentication. The users just have to press the "fingerprint graphic" on the screen with their finger to perform the unlocking. This technology is being considered as the future of fingerprint scanning in smartphones. The experience was very natural and integrated into the UI, with Vivo saying the animation would popup whenever a user needed to use the fingerprint reader, whether it be for mobile purchases or app logins.

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. It can also be used to authenticate payments. Since this device has a new technology, it's frustrating to know that users have to experience a slight lag.

Vivo has confirmed that the smartphone is ready for mass-production.

At CES 2018, Vivo showed off the first phone to ever have a fingerprint scanner embedded under the display. Would you want this on your next smartphone?
