  • A new phone from Chinese maker Vivo has its fingerprint reader embedded in its screen using a technology from Synaptics

This latest fingerprint scanning technology delivers a whole new mobile experience by enabling users to unlock their smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the smartphone display, while solving the industry's challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.

Vivo has worked in conjunction with Synaptics to make the first smartphone with a fingerprint scanner integrated into its display. When we touch/apply stress on the surface, the ultrasonic signals are exchanged which travel through the OLED screen. The prompt can appear even when the screen is off, and will disappear when it is no longer needed. It has its limitations, where it only work with the phones that use OLED displays as the sensor looks through the spaces between subpixels from under the panel.

This all-new feature is now present in the pre-production model by Chinese phone maker Vivo. The optical sensor can't physically sense a pulse, but Synaptics told us that it has built in a robust anti-spoofing system to ensure its reader can't be fooled by others trying to imitate your fingerprint.
