You all will be elated to know that in this smartphone there is no physical Fingerprint Scanner on the body and instead of that it houses a Fingerprint Scanner beneath the display which is great when it comes to saving space. A few weeks back Synaptics has announced their new Fingerprint Sensor which has the capability to detect your Fingerprints beyond an OLED Screen. As per different sources, the new sensor is reliable and will be used in the upcoming phones from different brands.

As per Vivo, the Scanner takes 0.7 sec to unlock the device which is not the fastest we have seen but is satisfactory and will get better with the future updates. You have to place your Finger in the below segment of the display as the sensor is present in the lower part of the device, it is not yet possible to unlock the device by placing your finger anywhere on the screen. The forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 is also expected to come with a similar In-Screen Fingerprint Scanner and for final features, we have to wait for the MWC 2018, for further updates stay connected.
