Fingerprint Sensors In The Screen Are Here

The first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor is kinda sorta here, and it's probably not from whom you'd expect. It's not an iPhone, it's not a Samsung Galaxy device: instead, it's a Vivo. The China-based company's device works through a "Clear ID" optical sensor from Synaptics that's hidden below the phone's OLED display. Scanning between the OLED display's pixels, it effectively does the same job as the old direct-contact fingerprint displays. It does require that you put your finger in an exact spot in order to work, but fortunately a fingerprint image pops up on the spot when needed so you're not fumbling blindly across the display.
