  • Vivo smartphone beats Apple and Samsung to the punch with new tech

Now, we know the name of the first phone manufacturer that plans to include the tech in a smartphone: Vivo. We got the latest update for you, it seems that Synaptics has finally solved the problem of embedded fingerprint sensors on the display and is now mass producing it for vivo as we speak. At the time, it was believed that Synaptics was talking about Samsung.

Moorhead states that enabling in-display fingerprint sensors on smartphones so far has been a manufacturability issue. It is unclear whether Vivo will continue its partnership with the San Diego, California-based chipmaker as Synaptics' technology is offering a similar and seemingly faster solution.

Tech analyst Patrick Moorhead has been trialing the new device and said it works faster than he expected. In a Forbes report, Moorhead stated the experience was "fast and simple" - the technology unlocked the screen after touching a fingerprint image illuminated at the bottom of the display. An in-display fingerprint sensor will definitely make more sense than an awkwardly placed rear fingerprint sensor seen on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.

That should help Vivo develop more compelling designs for its phones; it's already launched numerous models with barely-there bezels, but it'll now be able to ditch the fingerprint sensor on the back of those phones.

As for Vivo, the brand isn't too popular in the west, but it's one of the biggest smartphone brands in the world.

The company has actually begun production of the sensor, dubbed the "Clear ID in-display fingerprint scanner". Moreover, the analyst also mentioned that there will be as many as 70 million units of in-display sensors and it will be ready for 2018. The sister concern of Vivo - Oppo, which is owned by BBK Electronics - previously disrupted the smartphone market with its fast-charging technology called VOOC.

Vivo aims to beat both companies to the punch with its new "Clear ID" fingerprint scanner.
