Vivo to Be First Smartphone Maker With Synaptics' In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Synaptics начала производство подэкранных сканеров отпечатков пальцев

Moorhead said that he was able to try out the in-display fingerprint scanner using a pre-production smartphone unit from Vivo. What's more, the in-display fingerprint sensor will only get activated when it's needed in an effort to preserve battery life. Meanwhile, Vivo hasn't given out any details on which of its new upcoming smartphones will use the technology.

It was crowned as the 5th most popular smartphone manufacturer in Q1 of 2017, so it wouldn't be a surprise that Synaptics has partnered with Vivo for their inscreen fingerprint scanner.

According to Synpatics, Clear ID is not just twice as fast as 3D facial recognition technology like that seen in the iPhone X, but it's a lot cheaper to incorporate, too.

Moorhead's comments come after the touchpad maker Synaptics announced on Tuesday that it had made a fingerprint scanner that would work beneath a phone's display, and that the tech was already in "mass production" with a top five smartphone maker.

While there are various rumours of who would be launched the under-display fingerprint sensor first, a recent report by Forbes claims that it would be Vivo which will introduce the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

AppleCare+ for iMac Pro Costs $169
The main settlement Apple made is enabling clients to expel the stand and supplant it with a standard VESA mount themselves. If a big and powerful new computer was on your holiday wish list this year, you might just have something new to consider.

Samsung has been hard at work to implement an in-screen fingerprint sensor on its high-end flagship phones.

Apple, meanwhile, chose to ditch an actual fingerprint scanner altogether with the iPhone X. The iPhone X is Apple's first iPhone to not have Touch ID. The OLED screen illuminates the fingerprint, and the sensor scans it and sends it back to the processor.

Writing in Forbes yesterday, analyst Patrick Moorhead agreed such technology could represent a sea change in the mobile device market.

The company announced that it is going into full production with what it described as "top five original equipment manufacturers (OEM)".

If you are a bit curious about the new in-screen sensor created by Synaptics, this is a small CMOS device planted below an AMOLED display. It is also said to be scratch proof and waterproof since it is covered with a glass. 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.
