Vivo, Not Apple or Samsung, Builds Phone with Fingerprint Sensor in the Screen
Synaptics has recently announced technology to bake fingerprint sensors right into the display of a smartphone, and not beneath it as companies like Apple and Samsung were believed to be interested in.
At the time of the announcement, Synaptics was pretty vague on who is going to use its new optical fingerprint sensors, saying instead that one of the world’s top five smartphone manufacturers would soon launch such a device.
Everyone thought this is going to be Samsung, since the Galaxy S9 is on its way, but now the mystery is solved. Chinese smartphone maker Vivo, who is the fifth vendor right now, is ready to take the wraps off such a device that uses Synaptics tech to provide a fingerprint sensor baked into the screen.
Samsung interested in such tech too
