Company Vivo The Chinese is the first to introduce Synaptics' innovative technology, which will no longer force you to compromise between a screen with minimal margins and a biometric scanner in a convenient location on the smart device
Synaptics Has unveiled its unique solution To a secure fingerprint scanner located under the device's display panel last month, while promising to show collaboration with a manufacturer Smartphones From the senior echelon soon - and at the partner CES 2018 the partner was indeed revealed in line Vivo, Who until a few quarters ago was still in the market's opening five (before being pushed out by a native Israeli).
The scanner takes advantage of the unique structure of the technology screens OLED In order to catch the user's finger through the tiny diodes that make up the screen, and thus does not need any physical location in front of the screen to work - but does so below it, thus allowing the display to be stretched from top to bottom, as much as possible within modern technologies. The technology that allows you to activate any pixel on the screen OLED Separately allows the imprint scanner to be ready for the user's finger reception even when the screen is apparently off and in standby mode, without eliminating the battery life of the product. Early experimenters have testified that the sensor response times are reasonable - not the fastest on the market, but also not slow in a way that detracts from the overall user experience.
Vivo did not reveal any technical details of the prototype, which includes the unique sensor, but the photos show a great resemblance between it and the company's latest flagship product, the Vivo X20 (or the enlarged Vivo X20 Plus) - an impressive device in its own right that includes 6-inch elongated Super AMOLED screen, chip Snapdragon 660 up-to-date, dynamic 4 GB memory, volume storage 64 GB, 3,250mAh battery and fingerprint sensor in the center of its back, of course. We will not be surprised if the company decides to launch the new technology in a limited manner first, perhaps as a unique limited edition of the -Vivo X20.
If we do see the fingerprint scanners under the screens becoming a new hot trend in the market in 2018, similar to how those elongated screens with cropped edges quickly became a kind of new standard in the market - perhaps the biggest gainer from the whole story will not be Synaptics, but rather the queen of OLED screens סמסונג, Since this technology is the basis for contemporary application, at least until the future supersonic solution of the company is matured Qualcomm, Which will be able to work with all types of screens and even through metal bodies. On the other hand - it may be worthwhile to wait with the coronation at least until we hear the price of the first model designed.
