This gives us a good idea of what we can expect from the new fingerprint solution. As the industry moves into a new era of full-screen displays, it is natural that the fingerprint scanning technology needs to evolve to accommodate new user habits and demands for bigger screens without sacrificing user experience. Vivo did show off the technology in 2017, where it was built into a prototype device, but this time around it's in a phone that will actually be launched.

Nearly immediately following Vivo's announcement, Qualcomm followed up by issuing its own press release announcing that its under-the-glass fingerprint scanning technology is now in development.

As for the smartphone, Vivo has said that the smartphone is ready for production.

BGR quotes a release from TrendForce saying that "Fingerprint sensors will still be the first choice for most Android phones in 2018, since other biometric authentication methods available for Android phone makers can not completely replace fingerprint identification yet". However, the sensor wasn't as responsive as Vivo would have liked.

It supports various usage scenarios beyond unlocking the smartphone, and is only activated when needed. The phone was unveiled by the Chinese device manufacturer at the ongoing Consumer Electronic Show 2018 (CES 2018).

Cole, who is under team control for the 2018 and 2019 seasons, is in his second year of arbitration eligibility. Cole also contributed to Pittsburgh's 2013 postseason run, making two October starts as a rookie.

This simple yet elegant feature of having a home button only when you need to unlock your phone will be quite popular among the users, and it seems that it will be the most popular trend in mobile phones this year, starting with the high-end devices such as the rumoured Samsung Galaxy S9.

Until Vivo officially launched the technology, device manufacturers had to find various alternative methods in order to achieve a bezel-less display on the phone.

Yes, Vivo is the first phone, which was made available in the market with this new technology, however, it is just the beginning, and we are waiting to see new and more advanced technology this year.

The firm says Apple has embedded fingerprint scanning in iPhones and iPads since it acquired Authentic in 2013. And, in confirmation of rumors, the company Vivo announced the world's first smartphone with a fingerprint scanner in the display.
