Vivo Smartphone To Have The First In-Screen Fingerprint Sensor

Synaptics announced that it finally solved the in-screen fingerprint sensor dilemma for one of the top smartphone vendors. Apparently, that vendor is Vivo.

Forbes Tech Analyst, Patrick Moorhead, gave a detailed recounting of his experience with Vivo's prototype unit. He described the sensor as "fast and simple" while Synaptics claims it to be twice as fast compared to Apple's FaceID.

This development gives smartphones with all-screen displays more options when it comes to biometric authentication. However, Vivo's decision to go with Synaptics instead of Qualcomm, who showed an In-Screen Fingerprint sensor with Vivo, is a huge blow for the latter. The In-Screen Fingerprint sensor it showcased is a lot slower than what Synaptics was able to develop.

Vivo, one of the top five vendors in the world according to IDC, is now in front of the race to produce the first in-screen fingerprint sensor. It is now just a matter of time before its competitors jump on the new biometric craze.
