Vivo posted a teaser image with the tagline “Unlock the Future” and promised to unveil first phone with a fingerprint scanner embedded in its screen will be announced in just a couple of days, on Wednesday, January 10th.
The vivo phone may not be alone, however. Synaptics also promised a phone with an in-screen fingerprint reader at CES.
Unfortunately, it won’t be available in the US or anywhere in the Western world. Instead, it will be made by Vivo, a Chinese phone maker.
As to the technology behind the in-display fingerprint scanner itself, it is the same chip Synaptics unveiled a few weeks ago.
