After leaked video which showed us the demo of the under screen fingerprint scanner, now Vivo has officially announced it in MWC Shanghai yesterday.As we all know that Samsung and Apple are struggling to implement this feature in their next flagship devices but are failing it due to display issue or some due to lack of spare parts, but finally Vivo will be the World’s first company to announce such tech and implement successfully on a smartphone.Here is the demo for the same.
The under screen fingerprint scanner tech is developed by Qualcomm as a successor to Ultrasonic Fingerprint scanner which was unveiled last year.Vivo is the fist company to introduce the under display fingerprint tech with the prototype of an upcoming modified version of Vivo XPlay 6.Te fingerprint scanner is located 1.2 mm beneath the OLED display.The fingerprint scanner uses new updated version of the Qualcomm Ultrasonic tech that sends pulse through the finger,some of which will be absorbed and some will be reflected.This vibration detected by the sensor which builds up the fingerprint.
The fingerprint has the capability of penetrating under 0.8mm glass and 0.525 mm under metal which is a huge improvement over the capacitive fingerprint scanner.It can be accessible under wet hands or dust which was not possible with a capacitive fingerprint scanner.
Qualcomm new Ultrasonic fingerprint tech will ship in two forms. One with Glass and Metal will start to ship later this month and will be only compatible devices with SD660 or SD630 chip.While the under display fingerprint scanner will start shipping Q4 of this year and will work with all the non-SD chip.
