Forbes reveals OEM using Synaptics' in-display sensor

It is very intriguing as efforts were being made since very long to integrate the fingerprint sensor into the display and no one had ever imagined that Vivo will be the first to introduce the technology. Vivo might not be a known name in Western countries but it has emerged as a top-notch brand with quality phones in Asia.

Just days after Synaptics announced the mass production of its in-display fingerprint sensor with one of the "top-five" smartphone vendors, it has now been revealed that Vivo is working with the company to build the advanced experience on a mass level.

The Clear ID experience was fast and simple- I pressed the right side button to wake, a fingerprint image illuminated at the bottom of the phone, I touched it, and it let me in. It is worth adding that since the component is said to work on OLED screens, it might as well work on devices such as Galaxy S smartphones, LG G series or the iPhone X. Synaptics, at the time of the launch, said that the Clear ID FS9500 optical in-display fingerprint sensor works on wet, dry and cold fingers.

Synaptics' system is twice as fast as Apple's Face ID, and two to three times less expensive, according to Moorhead.

Apple's iPhone X left some fans disappointed as a result of the lack of a front fingerprint sensor on the device. Considering the imminent release of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the tech giant's partnership with Synaptics before, Samsung seems to be the prime candidate to receive them under the display fingerprint sensor.

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.

He wrote: "On Tuesday night, I got the chance to use a pre-production unit from Vivo and test [the fingerprint scanner] in-action".

Instead, we could see the in-display fingerprint scanner hit a Sammy device in H2 2018, probably the Galaxy Note 9. 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.
