This will be first smartphone manufacturer with inscreen fingerprint sensor

Synaptics, in a press statement said that the in-display fingerprint sensor is "highly-secure with SentryPoint technology". It would also ease the makers for bringing inaccessible fingerprint sensors.

It still isn't clear which Vivo device will feature the in-display sensor technology, or when it will launch, but the news offers a surprising conclusion to a year of behind-the-scenes activity as various biometrics specialists and smartphone makers have intensively pursued in-display fingerprint sensor technology.

If you are a bit curious about the new in-screen sensor created by Synaptics, this is a small CMOS device planted below an AMOLED display. Well, we don't have to wait for next month's CES to find out who that top 5 OEM is, as we now know it is Vivo that will showcase the under-display technology, with Forbes going hands-on with a pre-production unit with Clear ID onboard.

The instructions even included alternative phrases in some instances. Many CDC employees reportedly aren't happy about the changes.

There will be an image of a fingerprint that appears on the screen when the phone is woken up, and it will disappear after the fingerprint has been recognized. It's the reason we're seeing Face ID on the iPhone X and this horribly placed fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy S8 and Note 8. The OLED screen illuminates the fingerprint, and the sensor scans it and sends it back to the processor.

While this is slightly different from how we unlock our phones now, Moorhead expects Vivo to improve the experience by only requiring users to lift to wake the device, so at that point, they can just place their finger on the glass to unlock it, without the need to press any other buttons.

When smartphone manufacturers moved to infinity-style displays in 2017, virtually removing all bezels around the screen, many expected some to adopt in-display fingerprint scanners. Somewhere in June, a report emerged claiming that Vivo, a company owned by BBK Electronics and has so far confirmed its plans to enter the Kenyan market in early 2018, would be the first to use this technology. He also indirectly talked about the iPhone X, which relies on FaceID authentication. It is unclear whether Vivo will continue its partnership with the San Diego, California-based chipmaker as Synaptics' technology is offering a similar and seemingly faster solution.
