"Today's showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone with an optical fingerprint sensor is a step forward in bringing consumers this futuristic mobile experience". This may be true as this phone was earlier spotted online with an under-display fingerprint sensor.
Vivo has finally broken the silence and has announced that it will be the first manufacturer to use the Synaptics under-display fingerprint scanner. The company has been toying with in-screen fingerprint sensors for a while now.
Synaptics unveiled the first in-display fingerprint scanner late previous year and the company also revealed that the first phone to sport the new technology would would be launched at CES 2018, in Las Vegas.
From what Synaptics has revealed, the new in-display fingerprint scanner that will be present on the Vivo phone will provide the same level of security as traditional fingerprint readers found on the actual smartphones in the market. These fingerprint sensors can be embedded inside the display and will be scratch-proof as well waterproof.

Here's What Trump Wants in Deal to Protect Dreamers
Democratic lawmakers have already rejected that compromise, and the standoff could lead to a federal government shutdown. So the funds Trump seeks from Congress would be enough to say that by 2027, just over half the border is walled off.
Coming to the technology used, the company is using Piezoelectric currents to push fingerprint verification under OLED displays and even in the metallic back panel of the phones.
The phone is developed with thin-bezel and display offers 18:9 aspect ratio. The taller display has also resulted in the end of the physical home button on the front of the device, where the fingerprint scanner was typically placed. It will allow users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the display itself.
At the time when Face recognition technology is replacing the fingerprint sensor, Vivo wants to revolutionize the fingerprint sensor again. Meanwhile, a couple of days ago, an upcoming DOOGEE smartphone was leaked which was said to become the first device to achieve the technology.
According to the senior VP at Vivo (Alex Feng), the device will provide a more comfortable authentication experience and it will be officially announced early 2018.
