The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is around the corner and major announcements are in order. Every tech-enthusiast is eagerly waiting for this festival to start, many companies have geared up and are ready to launch their products. Vivo has officially announced that they will be showcasing a smartphone with a brand new fingerprint sensor technology on January 10. By looking at the image we have come to the conclusion that Vivo is planning on showcasing a phone with an under-display fingerprint sensor technology.
Nowadays, every mobile manufacturer is going in for bezel-less displays because of which the demand for the fingerprint sensors has also increased. For all the full-screen devices, the under-display fingerprint sensor is the most practical method to unlock the device.
A couple of days ago, Synaptics launched Clear ID FS9500 optical in-display fingerprint scanner for smartphones. This is a milestone in the fingerprint sensor technology because they can be used in wet, dry, and cold situations. It is scratch-as well as water-resistant. Synaptics claims that around 70 million phones will be available with this technology by the year 2018. They are ready to mass-produce the fingerprint sensor and will join hands with smartphone manufacturers. Although they have not revealed the name of the company but sources say it will be Vivo.
Vivo has also announced that they will be the first company to launch smartphones with fingerprint sensors underneath the display in 2018. The company did not disclose the name of the phone but we are hoping it will be revealed in the CES 2018.
