Synaptic Integrated Fingerprint Vivo Mobile
Vivo X20 the first one to have a fingerprint censor integrated into display and it actually worked very well. So this is the first phone to have the fingerprint censor integrated into the display. It’s place at the bottom of the cell phone. Which is available to use as you would with any other smartphone display. When you lock the phone and you want to unlock it, it turns into a fingerprint sensor. It works same as like the capacity fingerprint censor you might have seen on Apple iPhone devices or Samsung Galaxy S series.
The difference and advantage now is that you have these ultra-thin bezels top and bottom of the phone but you still have the fingerprint sensor right at the front where it used to be. And for a lot of people it should be. IF you have no bezels, you have nowhere to put it so a lot of companies had to come up with compromises. Samsung’s solution was to put it on the back but way over here on the side which is terrible ergonomically. Apple’s solution was to just forego Touch ID entirely on the iPhone X. Neither of which was really ideal.
There were many reports that Samsung and Apple were trying to integrate it into display itself under the OLED panel. And that is exactly what Vivo X20 has done here with the help of synaptic.
Vivo is the first company to introduce this. It’s very likely that there will be others following on for the rest of the year in 2018 and it’s really impressive. It’s exactly, it works exactly as the usual capacitive fingerprint sensor does. But it’s just integrated into the display. It feels a little bit magical because you’re using the display as you would on any other phone but when you lock the phone and you’re trying to unlock it. You put your finger on it and it authenticates you. It does the usual biometrical authentication. It’s optical, like the previous stuff.
The Vivo X20 OLED Panels
Now, this only works with OLED panels because it’s optical and there is a synaptic sensor built down at the bottom. Which looks through the OLED dots. This wouldn’t work with an LCD because that requires a backlight which would block that recognition. So, you will only be able to find this on smartphones with OLED displays coming up in the rest of this year.
The only difference relative to the usual fingerprint sensor is this one is seems to be a little bit slower. It isn’t s lighting fast as something like you would get on the previous iPhone’s or the One-plus 5t and so on. But it’s tolerably slow. Even though it’s not terribly well known globally, Vivo X20 is actually one of the world’s biggest smartphones manufacturer’s. Owing to a lot of success in it’s native market of china. This companies the first to come out with this Synaptic integrated fingerprint sensor solution. But I’m pretty confident that there’ll be a whole bunch of others joining it as we go through the year 2018.
It has an aluminum uni body, it has a headphone jack but with a micro USB port which is not quite good at this stage with this kinda phone, because USB C port is the standard of the future.
This is the Vivo’s next flagship and having this brand new, futuristic technology. It makes sense that Vivo would give it the full special treatment.
