Hands-on with vivo's in-display fingerprint scanner

Vivo mobile phone with Synaptics in-display fingerprint sensor

Apple and Samsung are no doubt ruling the smartphone industry by integrating many smart technologies in their phones, but the Chinese are not far behind.

This new Vivo smartphone is a prototype at the moment although the companion as said that the handset is ready to go into production. It is a CMOS device, created to be placed below an AMOLED screen. The prompt can appear even when the screen is off, and will disappear when it is no longer needed.

Talking about the working, the company uses an ultrasonic sensor underneath the display and follows the principle of piezoelectric effects.

The in-display scanner reads the user's fingerprint to unlock the device, without taking up precious screen space. Vivo usually pops up on our radar when it shows up at a trade show with a "first ever" feature on smartphones.

"We are excited to announce Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors because they can be created to support sleeker, cutting-edge form factors, unique mobile authentication experiences, and enhanced security authentication", said Seshu Madhavapeddy, Qualcomm Technologies's vice president of product management. Compared to fingerprint sensors on the back of smartphones, Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology offers a more convenient operation without sacrificing the sleek and unified design of the smartphone.

Nonetheless, it's definitely exciting to finally see a smartphone with an in-screen fingerprint sensor become a reality.

One lucky reporter had the chance test the new feature, but Vivo has yet to announce the official name of the device. Early reports claim this sensor is accurate and fast enough, but it can't match the speed and accuracy of the best dedicated fingerprint sensors.

Check out Vivo's new fingerprint technology in action in the video above. Simply place your finger on the icon and the phone unlocks.If you wake the phone with the power button, then the display will show a lock screen and will unlock the device straight into your home screen. The important thing here is the inclusion of a Synaptics in-display fingerprint reader. Once the fingerprint is registered, unlocking the phone works just fine, like any other physical fingerprint sensors.
