Vivo showed the original smartphone with fingerprint scanner in the display

Vivo's Groundbreaking Fingerprint Sensor is Changing the Smartphone World

After reportedly failing Samsung in delivering a functional screen-embedded fingerprint sensor in time for last year's Galaxy S8 launch, Synaptics joined forces with Vivo, and the result of the two's collaboration works surprisingly well.

The in-display scanner reads the user's fingerprint to unlock the device, without taking up precious screen space. The tool will allow its users to protect their phones by an in-display fingerprint sensor resulting in detecting its rightful owner.

Apart from its highlight in-display fingerprint sensor, nothing else is known about the smartphone as of now. After all, that's where most phone makers introduce their latest and greatest smartphones yet - the ideal event for vivo to introduce the new technology on its new smartphone. This gives us a good idea of what we can expect from the new fingerprint solution.

Nearly immediately following Vivo's announcement, Qualcomm followed up by issuing its own press release announcing that its under-the-glass fingerprint scanning technology is now in development.

WhatsApp Group Chats Can Be Easily Hacked, Even With End-to-End Encryption
In Threema, only the creator of a group is the administrator, each group has a unique ID, and all group messages contain this ID. This is an obvious security concern as all the messages sent after the insertion of the new entity can be intercepted.

Instead, it's Chinese firm Vivo which has beaten the likes of Apple and Samsung to the punch, and we got hands-on with its yet-to-be-named smartphone at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the graphic of the fingerprint will be invisible and will not ruin the overall visual experience. "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon".

For all the phone enthusiasts out there, the best and the most exciting news is that this technology exists, and it works. 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.

This is the world's first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology replaces the physical fingerprint button on the screen, laying the foundation for a truly immersive experience. Vivo, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has already announced the launch of the first-ever fingerprint scanner that is built into the display of the smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is now going on in Las Vegas till 12th Jan 2018.
