The smartphone market is dominated by big screen devices and now Vivo is aiming at upping the ante by launching a phone that has a fingerprint sensor embedded under the display.
According to a post last week by industry analyst Jiutang Pan on Weibo, a video showed a working prototype being unlocked through on-screen fingerprint scanner.
A report is Mashable suggests that the Vivo Under Display technology, embeds the fingerprint scanner beneath the display of a smartphone. This technology can work through glass, OLED screen, and aluminum as well.
Samsung and Apple both have been racing to perfect a fingerprint sensor that resides beneath a smartphone's display but the upcoming iPhone 8, is widely rumored to not have that.
