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.
Back in June past year, at MWC Shanghai 2017, chip maker Qualcomm introduced on-screen fingerprint scanner, and later, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo also showed off a prototype smartphone with on-screen fingerprint scanning technology.
The company said that the display was ready for mass production. This may be true as this phone was earlier spotted online with an under-display fingerprint sensor. These displays are typically edge-to-edge with a wide 18:9 aspect ratio. Rumor mills were earlier speculating an under the screen fingerprint sensor for the iPhone X. As we all know the iPhone X got a Face ID feature and ditched the Fingerprint Sensor (TouchID) altogether. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the fingerprint user interface will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience.
CES 2018 has not been about smartphones much this time around, but that isn't stopping Vivo from making its presence felt. But now, Vivo is there at CES with the groundbreaking technology.
Senior VP, Vivo, Alex Feng detailed the technology in a press release and said that it is aimed at solving the industry's challenge of offering a convenient authentication experience. As we are moving towards smartphones with near bezel-less displays, consumers have been expecting under display fingerprint sensors to become a thing as many are not in favour of rear mounted sensors. It will allow users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the display itself.
