This will be first smartphone manufacturer with inscreen fingerprint sensor

Even though we now know that Vivo will be the one to give us the first test of an in-display fingerprint scanner, there is still no word on which phone will be using the feature.

Luckily for those companies, Synaptics has already announced that 2018 is going to be a banner year for in-display fingerprint readers, confirming that the feature has entered mass production for a "top five OEM".

Moorehead saw a pre-production phone with the tech and said the sensor was "fast and simple". Users will simply have to wake the phone by pressing the right side button and place their finger where an illuminated fingerprint is shown at the bottom portion of the display.

Apple's iPhone X left some fans disappointed as a result of the lack of a front fingerprint sensor on the device.

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. In the company's press release, it specifically mentioned that the Clear ID fingerprint scanner is designed for smartphones with "infinity displays", which is also what Samsung calls the displays that are on the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8.

Google Plans to Open Artificial Intelligence Centre in China
The China research center will be run by Fei-Fei Li, the head of AI research and development at Google's cloud computing business. Even though Google is blocked in the country, it is cementing its position in China by focusing on Artificial Intelligence .

Overall, it looks like the Synaptics Clear ID technology is very reliable based on Moorhead's experience.

The integrated fingerprint sensor is the need of the hour as bezel-less displays are the new trend in the smartphone market.

If there's one technology for which the tech-world have kept us waiting for long, then it's definitely the glass-embedded fingerprint sensors. Meanwhile, Vivo hasn't given out any details on which of its new upcoming smartphones will use the technology. With that, it announced that the mass production is happening for one of the top smartphones manufactures in the world. Vivo also made headlines back in June when it demonstrated an in-display fingerprint scanner from Qualcomm.

According to Synaptics it's also apparently faster and cheaper than Face ID, so you might not have to spend a small fortune to get a phone with an in-screen scanner.
