Well this is surely interesting guys! First of all have a look at this video on Weibo in order to better understand what an optical fingerprint sensor is before you continue to read below about Vivo and their plans.
So, this video leaked earlier today and shows a Vivo X9 Plus-like smartphone with no dedicated capacitive fingerprint sensor (like most smartphones have these days) but the guy still manages to “unlock” just by touching the display. According to industry analyst Pan Jiutang Vivo will be the first in the under screen optical fingerprint scanner game, whilst Apple will more likely bring this technology into the ‘global mainstream’.
According to the latest rumors however, Vivo will be holding an event on June 28 within the Shanghai MWC conference, possibly to reveal the prototype you just saw in the video above.
What do you think about this new optical fingerprint sensor technology?
