However, in the past year or so, smartphone manufacturers have adopted a new type of technology that has made it harder to deploy a fingerprint reader in the phone. That means that you've had to move your fingerprint sensor from the front, where many like it the best, to the back, or, as is the iPhone X's case, remove it completely. It has its limitations, where it only work with the phones that use OLED displays as the sensor looks through the spaces between subpixels from under the panel. UBI Research predicted that bezel-less displays will grow in market share from 20% in 2017 to over 50% by 2020.

"In Vivo's R&D plan, fingerprint scanning will not be carried out by an independent button or region".

This new Vivo smartphone is a prototype at the moment although the companion as said that the handset is ready to go into production. But sadly none of the big smartphone manufacturers were able to implement this feature in their flagship phones. "We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon", he added.

Now that CES 2018 has been under way for a few days, the device with the new type of fingerprint sensor has indeed been demoed at the show.

It supports various usage scenarios beyond unlocking the smartphone, and is only activated when needed.

For several years now, cell phone users have had to live with the fear of a potential thief acquiring possession of their device. When fingerprint recognition is not required, the UI will be invisible and will not disrupt the overall visual experience. The company is most likely powering some of the devices you have, and it specialized in touch controllers, fingerprint sensors, integrated touch and displays, digital headset SoCs, Multimedia and Video Processing and Imaging.

Vivo In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology outperforms other authentication solutions available for full-screen smartphones in many aspects. It also enables quick and secured authentication.

At the end of 2016, it notes, Synaptics released UnderGlass, an optical solution for fingerprint sensing, which overcomes the limitation that capacitive solutions can not sense through the glass panel of phones. The active engagements of these companies indicate in-display fingerprint sensing will bring about a new trend for smartphones. In fact, it's set to be released sometime in early 2018.
