Meet The World’s First Phone With An In-Display Fingerprint Sensor: For all of those who don’t know, Synaptics Inc. the company announced a new type of technology in December 2017 which will allow manufacturers to place a fingerprint sensor on the smartphone screen. The news created lots of controversies and it looks like the technology had made its way to a new smartphone.
Embedding the fingerprint sensor under the smartphone screen will allow smartphone manufacturers to eliminate the extra space that’s required for placing the fingerprint sensor. Well, Synaptics Inc. has announced in Dec 2017 that it will show the first prototype of technology during CES 2018.
So, now in CES 2018, the company has fulfilled the promise. The company showed a smartphone of Vivo at the event that carries very thin edges just like the all new Samsung Galaxy S8. The smartphone carries the biometric sensor on the front and it’s the first smartphone that carried the fingerprint sensor under the display.
As we know, Capacitive sensors are now present on almost every high-end smartphones. So, Vivo’s on-screen sensor also works the same way as the capacitive sensor do. However, the latest tech comes with one major drawback, it was bit slower compared to others.
Latest high-end smartphones from Samsung embeds fingerprint sensor at the back just to reduce the edges around the phone’s screen. However, embedding the fingerprint sensor at the back is also prone to ruining the photography experience.
