Vivo Smartphone with Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner Coming on Jan 10

As we’re entering towards the era of bezel-less devices, so many manufacturers have a question of where to place the fingerprint sensors. Recently, Synaptics has announced its Clear ID FS9500 which is a family of ‘optical in-display fingerprint sensors’.


According to report, Vivo would be the first company to showcase a smartphone with an Under-Display Fingerprint Scanner. The Chinese company Vivo has officially announced that it would showcase its device with a new fingerprint sensor technology at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) on 10th January 2018. The company recently posted the following image on its official website.

The new Synaptics Clear ID FS9500 technology which will be used in upcoming Vivo device is said that it will be super fast and highly durable in nature. Also, these sensors will work with wet, dry, and cold fingerprints. As fingerprint sensor will place below the screen, so it will be water as well as scratch resistant. The new sensor comes with ECC authentication and AES encryption.
