  • This Vivo phone has a fingerprint sensor built right into the display

You certainly can! Check out the short video clip below of us using the fingerprint scanner to unlock the handset. Vivo, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has already announced the launch of the first-ever fingerprint scanner that is built into the display of the smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is now going on in Las Vegas till 12th Jan 2018. We'll know more about the smartphone as we approach its launch. That means that you've had to move your fingerprint sensor from the front, where many like it the best, to the back, or, as is the iPhone X's case, remove it completely.

The in-display fingerprint sensor will solve the industry's challenge of providing high screen-to-body ratio with the positioning of the fingerprint scanner. Vivo usually pops up on our radar when it shows up at a trade show with a "first ever" feature on smartphones.

The MoD also said that a U.S. spy plane flew over Syria around the time of the attack , which helped the rebels target the drones. The drones, according to data from the captured drones showed that it was launched from the rebel-controlled Idlib area.

The process takes a little time longer than other smartphones since the sensor has to read the fingerprint through the display.

Vivo had announced in December a year ago that it would be the first company to launch a phone with in-display fingerprint sensor.

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". The sensor seems to have been tested on various devices at CES. Simply place your finger on the icon and the phone unlocks.If you wake the phone with the power button, then the display will show a lock screen and will unlock the device straight into your home screen. This gives us a good idea of what we can expect from the new fingerprint solution. The new in-built display fingerprint scanner works just like the conventional fingerprint scanner, but the only difference is that it is built inside the display using Synaptics Optical Sensor. Once you place it down, this icon will shine brighter to illuminate your finger bright enough for the sensor to see. But sadly none of the big smartphone manufacturers were able to implement this feature in their flagship phones.
