The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has unveiled the world's first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner at CES 2018. According to the Vivo, the phone will allow the users to unlock their phone simply by touching or tapping the display.

Vivo has showcased the first smartphone featuring an in-display fingerprint scanner at CES 2018. The in-display fingerprint scanner for the device is being manufacturing by Synaptics and Vivo says that the mobile phone will allow users to unlock it, by simply touching or tapping the display.

The smartphone is said to be ready for mass production and will solve the “industry’s challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.” Vivo has not released any details or specifications of the smartphone, however, the company announced that it will be launching it in early 2018.


“With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology. We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones,” said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo, ”Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon,” he added.

Last month, Synaptics announced that it is collaborating with a "top 5" company for rolling out its in-screen fingerprint sensor for bezel-less smartphone displays and as many as 70 million units of in-display fingerprint sensors will be available this year. 


The Synaptics Clear ID sensors are mainly developed for thin-bezel OLED display panels with the taller-than-usual 18:9 aspect ratio and are mainly designed to replace the widely available fingerprint sensing solutions. 

The advanced sensors are believed to be capable of recognising fingerprints under layers up to 1.5mm thick, including a screen protector; particularly, the Clear ID FS9500 range can work with wet, dry, and cold fingers, Synaptics said.


Apart from its highlight in-display fingerprint sensor, nothing else is known about the smartphone as of now. Vivo said that the handset will be announced early this year although the exact date has not been revealed yet. We'll know more about the smartphone as we approach its launch.
