Vivo Will Be The First Smartphone to Use Clear ID

Vivo Will Be The First Smartphone to Use Clear ID

What's more, the in-display fingerprint sensor will only get activated when it's needed in an effort to preserve battery life.

Vivo will be the first smartphone maker to have Clear ID, and although you might not be familiar with the brand, they're one of the top five smartphone vendors (excelling overseas). This will allow manufacturers to maintain the design of their phones, while also keeping the fingerprint reader in a familiar area. Its Clear ID fingerprint sensors have gone into mass production.

Initially, it was thought that Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 would be the first in the world to use a fingerprint scanner under the display screen, but this did not happen. "Synaptics announced it has figured out how to manufacture, in high volume, an integrated fingerprint sensor in the smartphone display that operates in a fast, secure, manner", a report in Forbes said late on Thursday. Synaptics claims that their fingerprint scanner is twice as fast as the iPhone Face ID recognition system.

Amazon Prime Video In Action On The Apple TV
A tit-for-tat move, as Amazon refuses to sell many of Google's products that compete with its own products on its retail website. Streaming devices allow users to stream videos from platform such as Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Prime on its TV.

While this is slightly different from how we unlock our phones now, Moorhead expects Vivo to improve the experience by only requiring users to lift to wake the device, so at that point, they can just place their finger on the glass to unlock it, without the need to press any other buttons. No release date was announced in the statement but fans are expecting to experience the fingerprint sensor under the screen by 2018. In order for it to work, the finger has to be illuminated, so that the fingerprint scanner can read the reflections of the finger scan. However, Moorhead seemed to have cleared the air confirming it is going to be vivo smartphone instead. According to Moorhead who used a prototype of a Vivo-branded smartphone, it's faster than using something like Face ID and only appears when you need it.

With the inbuilt sensors the manufacturers in near future would be able to bring out more full-screen smartphones, complete with the ease of a front-facing fingerprint sensor. He also indirectly talked about the iPhone X, which relies on FaceID authentication. With Clear ID, Synaptics is looking to offer an even more seamless solution. Vivo fell one position in Q2 but, thanks to its success in India, is expected to quickly regain a top five position.
