Vivo phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor coming in early

Vivo made quite a ripple at the MWC Shanghai 2017 when it showed off a prototype under display fingerprint scanner which used Qualcomm's ultrasonic technology.

Till now we have seen phones with fingerprint scanners either in the front bezel below the display or in the back panel.

One such product is the next-gen. biometric scanning technology developed by Synaptics and implemented on a Vivo smartphone. "Vivo says that this is world's first ready-to-produce smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner, and just to be clear, on the inside lies Synaptics" in-display fingerprint scanner, 'Clear ID'.

Dozens missing as China eco disaster looms
Navy have deployed ships and aircraft to assist with the search for the missing crewmen amid an area of 900-square nautical miles. The official said the tanker was owned by National Iranian Tanker and had been rented by a South Korean company, Hanwha Total.

If you want to get Clear ID into your hands, the Vivo device will be hard to come by in the U.S. (unless you're into the import game), but we'll certainly be on the lookout for other Android OEMs to incorporate this exciting tech.

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 Clear ID experience was fast and simple", McDonald said in an opinion piece. Whereas others, just trans-locate the fingerprint scanner to the back, either beside the primary camera or below it, either way there are more chances of users accidently touching the lens-cover and leave sweaty smudges on it, resulting in distorted images.

U.S. pins hope on China to tackle Pak terror camps
China was quick to jump to Pakistan's defence when US President tweeted that his administration was stopping all aid to Islamabad for not using the money to flush out terrorists.

The use of glass will also help the manufacturer to make the phone water-proof (IP68 or beyond), as well.

The sensor will be between the OLED display and the mainboard.

It's a similar story with Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, although it has shifted the fingerprint sensor to the rear of its devices rather than dispense with it completely. The availability of Vivo's first smartphone with fingerprint scanner on its display screen will be announced in early 2018. However, the phone's name and other specifications' detail has not be revealed yet. It allows for one-touch unlocking, payments authentications, and app unlocks.

JP Morgan Chase CEO Says He Regrets Calling Bitcoin a Fraud

The Verge, which was able to go hands-on with the Vivo's in-display fingerprint sensor, reported that the process of setting up a fingerprint and using it unlock the device is the same as with conventional sensors.
