Considering the imminent release of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the tech giant's partnership with Synaptics before, Samsung seems to be the prime candidate to receive them under the display fingerprint sensor.
We've been waiting a long time for a phone with a fingerprint scanner built into the screen and it looks like Vivo is going to be the first to launch one, and that it will be coming very soon. This will allow manufacturers to maintain the design of their phones, while also keeping the fingerprint reader in a familiar area.
Vivo is said to use a 0.7 mm CMOS image sensor underneath OLED display to read fingerprint.
Moorhead further stated that in-display fingerprint sensors on smartphones weren't available so far due to manufacturing issues. Are you looking forward to using in-display fingerprint sensors? When you need it, you should see a fingerprint icon on the lower end of the screen, just about the same place it appears on phones with bezels.
Two Reuters journalists arrested in Myanmar
The Health Ministry has sent a field hospital to Bangladesh for Rohingya refugees from Myanmar, the General Staff said yesterday. The figure of 6,700 people who were killed through violence represents "the most conservative" estimate, MSF said.

The Walt Disney Co. also held back showing 2015's The Force Awakens and last year's Rogue One for the HFPA, rendering those films similarly ineligible for consideration.
Life is odd heads to mobile on iOS later this week
Episodes 1-3 of Life is unusual on iOS will launch on December 14th, with the remaining two episodes due Q1 2018. You'll have the ability in-game to post directly to your social media accounts if you want to update friends.
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. Moreover, Synaptics claimed their in-house tech is twice as fast as Apple's Face ID. That accolade goes to Vivo as has been confirmed by Patrick Moorhead over at Forbes who got to play with a pre-production unit from Vivo fitted with the Synaptics Clear ID sensor.
Synaptics calls its solution Clear ID, and Vivo has been a prominent public advocate for in-screen fingerprint recognition dating back to the summer when the phone maker previewed the technology. Instead, the iPhone X is equipped with facial recognition.
A OnePlus 6 featuring Clear ID could make the second-half of 2018 even more interesting.
In-screen fingerprint sensors have been considered as a natural evolution of modern biometric sensors as the smartphone displays this year moved to an edge-to-edge concept. According to IDC Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker report, Samsung had 23.3 per cent market share in first quarter of 2017, while vivo grabbed the fifth position with 5.5 per cent total share.
