Vivo showcases its first ready-to-produce smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor from SynapticsAs promised, today at CES 2018, Vivo has announced its first ready-to-produce smartphone with an in-display optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics. With it, you can unlock your device simply by touching a dedicated area on the screen. This solution allows for all-screen fronts and more integrated body design for smartphones. Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology supports various usage scenarios beyond unlocking the smartphone and is only activated when needed. 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 even mobile payment authentication. Users can press the fingerprint graphic on the screen to perform unlocking, payment and other operations. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the UI will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience.

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." He also added: "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."Source
