The fingerprint reader itself is about the size of a small coin and works by scanning your finger through the tiny gaps found along the phone's pixels.

The smartphone with the Vivo In Display Fingerprint Scanning technology can be unlocked by placing your finger on a specific part of the display.

"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. It will be realized more subtly under the screen, behind the metal shell, or even in the frame", Vivo told Engadget in an exclusive interview on the sidelines of MWC, Shanghai.

Made in collaboration with Synaptics, the fingerprint sensor will only be "visible" when it is needed; a fingerprint icon will be shown on the display whenever the sensor is active.

This is according to market research firm TrendForce, which believes in-display fingerprint sensors will make a breakthrough this year, with vendors Samsung, LG, OPPO, Vivo, Xiaomi and Huawei likely to embed this technology, bringing the global fingerprint sensor penetration rate in smartphones to 60%. "This provides OEMs and operators with the ability to offer truly distinct, differentiated devices with added value on truly groundbreaking new devices".

Nonetheless, it's definitely exciting to finally see a smartphone with an in-screen fingerprint sensor become a reality.

Synaptics to ship in-display fingerprint sensors with Vivo smartphones

Samsung has been hard at work to implement an in-screen fingerprint sensor on its high-end flagship phones.

By the end of the year we could have a choice of handsets packing the technology, and the hope is that there will be at least one handset with it available in all major markets.

As you touch the screen, the lit-up fingerprint is then reflected into an in-display fingerprint sensor which is then authenticated.

Full-screen displays are set to deliver a more immersive user experience for consumers as various interactions will be integrated and consolidated on the display.

You certainly can! Check out the short video clip below of us using the fingerprint scanner to unlock the handset.

The process takes a little time longer than other smartphones since the sensor has to read the fingerprint through the display. In-display, also called under-the-display or under-display fingerprint scanner, is a system where the sensor is placed right under the display screen which silently "retracts" once the phone has been unlocked.
