Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has released a teaser revealing the company's under-display fingerprint sensor which the company is going to launch soon.

He shared: "With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology". That fingerprint scanner was announced last month, and Synaptics recently confirmed that it is already producing large quantities of Clear ID for the "world's top five smartphone manufacturers', and Vivo belongs in that group".

Coming to the technology used, the company is using Piezoelectric currents to push fingerprint verification under OLED displays and even in the metallic back panel of the phones.

Synaptics has said the sensor takes just 0.7-seconds to authenticate the fingerprint and that seems to have played out in various hands-on tests at CES. Vivo has mentioned that this initial Vivo smartphone with under-display fingerprint scanning is all set to be announced in early 2018. Let us know in comments.

Unlike most Android phones which use a fingerprint sensor on the back to unlock the device, Apple introduced facial recognition scanning to unlock its iPhone X, replacing fingerprint recognition on earlier models.

To make this feat possible, Vivo made use of the in-display fingerprint scanner by Synaptics known as Clear ID, which was only announced during the end of past year.
