Today they want this and tomorrow it's about something else. It is estimated that other smartphone makers might collaborate with Qualcomm to bring in the advanced fingerprint sensor. For instance, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is almost the same size as the Galaxy S7, but the former has a screen size of 5.8 inches while the latter has a 5.1-inch panel. These are the new breed of taller, usually "bezel-less" phones.
It's true several OEMs have a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner on their devices and customers like it that way. Better yet, it still functions with the same security and dependability as a conventional fingerprint sensor, meaning it can be used not just for unlocking, but payments as well. And while Samsung has kept the scanner, it has been placed in an awkward space right near the camera lens. However, Moorhead seemed to have cleared the air confirming it is going to be vivo smartphone instead.
Synaptics announced on Tuesday that it has pioneered a way to mass produce fingerprint sensors integrated in smartphone displays and Vivo will be the first smartphone manufacturer to have it. Synaptics estimates that 70 million units can be produced in 2018.
While Vivo's earlier prototype was based on its Xplay6 handset, we don't yet know what form the new phone will take. The latter technologies are still big advancements in the mobile space, but the Holy Grail has been an invisible fingerprint sensor within your screen. You simply place your finger on the display and it reads your appendage, therefore unlocking whatever content was necessary. As usual with Android, OEMs will be able to play around with the looks of this fingerprint icon on the display to make it unique. And it's not Samsung, but Vivo - a relatively unknown brand in the Western market. However, the official unveiling or rather teaser is expected to happen at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 event that kicks off on January 9th in Las Vegas.
It still isn't clear which Vivo device will feature the in-display sensor technology, or when it will launch, but the news offers a surprising conclusion to a year of behind-the-scenes activity as various biometrics specialists and smartphone makers have intensively pursued in-display fingerprint sensor technology.
As for Vivo, the brand isn't too popular in the west, but it's one of the biggest smartphone brands in the world. Vivo phones aren't commonly sold or well-known in the States, but OnePlus' devices are. But the company behind it is not one you would have suspected.
