A couple days ago, Synaptics announced that it was finally ready to mass-produce the first-ever fingerprint sensor that will be hidden underneath the smartphone display. The company had mentioned that the technology will be first available on a smartphone from “one of the top 5 OEMs,” and as per a new tweet, it is now confirmed that the OEM is none other than Vivo.
Here are some pics @anshelsag and I took of the Vivo smartphone with the Synaptics in-display fingerprint reader. The CMOS image sensor is .7mm thick and reads the fingerprint right through the OLED display. The experience was faster than I expected. pic.twitter.com/u1NFpXtFQM— Patrick Moorhead (@PatrickMoorhead) December 14, 2017
