However, maybe you prefer fingerprint sensor over even a state-of-the-art face unlocking like Face ID, and you definitely want it in the front because you need to unlock the phone a billion times a day while it's laying on the desk, and you still want a huge display that takes up almost all the room from the front face of the phone. But Synaptics appears to be the first one to bring it to market.

"By putting mechanical stress or pressure on a designated area of the display, the fingerprints are registered and authentication is carried out". "We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones", said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo. In a nutshell, how the technology works is the phone's OLED display panel emits light to illuminate your fingerprint.

Now with this phone, there is always-on display, which can be removed in the settings, but it's a good way to pull the phone out of your pocket and unlock it, since it does show you were to put your finger to unlock the device.

The company also demonstrated functioning of the scanner, and unlocking of the device.

In the past years, the Android camp adopted fingerprint scanning to unlock phones and make mobile payments. Now smartphone manufacturers can use a fingerprint sensor on the front of the phone, without compromising on the thin bezels or the size of the phone. That's a bit further down the road and at this point, it's probably not going to be a big deal.

The technology, dubbed Clear ID, was developed in collaboration with Synaptics and Qualcomm. Which are already pretty small, as you can see from the image above.

At CES here, a Chinese vendor is showing off a smartphone built with a fingerprint reader that's hidden behind the display.

While the rest of us will simply have to wait and "scan for ourselves" to wage an honest opinion, those who've been lucky enough to test Vivo's new technology at CES have been reporting mixed experiences. Now that the fingerprint sensor issue is solved, it'll be interesting to see how the front-facing camera evolves, and disappears. Then again, it seems likely that you could login another way and re-register your finger to make that stored print the new normal.
