Vivo has showcased the first smartphone featuring an in-display fingerprint scanner at CES 2018. The in-display fingerprint scanner for the device is being manufacturing by Synaptics and Vivo says that the mobile phone will allow users to unlock the it, by simply touching or tapping the display.

The smartphone is said to be ready for mass production and will solve the “industry’s challenge of providing a better and more convenient fingerprint authentication experience in future smartphones.”  Vivo has not released any details or specifications of the smartphone, however, the company announced that it will be launching it in early 2018.
 
 
“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. 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, ”Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon,” he added. 

Last month, Synaptics announced that it is collaborating with a "top 5" company for rolling out its in-screen fingerprint sensor for bezel-less smartphone displays. An early report tipped that the company was Vivo, who had previously displayed a prototype phone which ran on Qualcomm's version of the same technology at MWC Shanghai.
