Here's all about it.

What was the tech challenge?

Most of us are now using smartphones that have fingerprint scanners located at the bottom of the screens or at the back of the devices.

Additionally, it has always been the challenge for the smartphone makers to make the screen as big as possible.

However, since they had to include a fingerprint scanner at the bottom, it took away valuable space from the screen.

Samsung loses out

A solution to this problem could be achieved if someone could just put the scanner beneath the display. The user would just press the screen and it will get unlocked.

Reportedly, Samsung's Galaxy S8 was supposed to have this feature. However, the firm couldn't squeeze it in due to the pressure of its tight releasing schedule and, therefore, the phone didn't have this technology.

The company claims that Vivo's fingerprint sensor will be able to penetrate glass, aluminum, and OLED deeper than any other technology that's present in the market. Also, it will not be affected by wet fingers or sweat marks.

The firm is now envisioning smartphones with "true full-screen display and an integrated unibody and mechanical waterproofing design".

The next leap for smartphones is here.
