Vivo’s Prototype Phone features in-display Fingerprint Sensor

Vivo’s Prototype Phone features in-display Fingerprint Sensor

Vivo showcased a phone in CES 2018. You can see the phone come to life by touching a finger anywhere on the display. The whole thing is made possible by a Synaptic CMOS ; which is basically a tiny camera laminated to the back of an OLED panel.

The light from the OLED display itself illuminates your fingerprint, which the sensor “sees” and checks against the print stored on the phone. Of course, none of this will matter to the people who actually try it. Aside from the that you can’t actually see the sensor, it works like you’d expect it to.

But it has some potentially fundamental pain points. For one, people screw up their screens all the time. A crack running across the display or a few well-placed scratches could mean what the sensor sees no longer matches the stored image of your fingerprint. Then again, it seems likely that you could log in another way and re-register your finger to make that stored print the new normal.

More importantly, the sensor might not recognize your fingerprint if it’s distorted — say, if you’re pressing your finger onto the screen harder than you were when you registered it. Needless to say, this is going to take a lot of getting used to. Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we get to try a sensor like this in a more polished phone.
