New Vivo smartphone might sport an optical fingerprint sensor
Vivo’s upcoming smartphone might sport an optical fingerprint sensor, enabling the device to read the user’s fingerprint right on the display itself.
According to GizmoChina, the device, which is currently a prototype, will sport an optical fingerprint sensor built into the display. This is different from the usual fingerprint sensor normally placed below the display or at the rear of the device.
This is not the first time we’re hearing this kind of fingerprint scanning tech on a smartphone, though, as it has been reported that Apple’s upcoming iPhone will implement the same concept for its Touch ID.
GizmoChina reports that Vivo might officially unveil the prototype on June 28 at the MWC Shanghai 2017.
