While Samsung had hoped to bring the world's first under-the-glass fingerprint scanner with the Galaxy S8, that plan didn't work out as the technology just wasn't ready in time. As a result, the Galaxy S8 ended up with the world's weirdest fingerprint scanner ever! Nevertheless, Samsung tried to incorporate it once again with the upcoming Note 8 and this time by working with a different company. However, reports are indicating that it didn't work out either and the Note 8 will sport a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, but in the middle thankfully! As it turns out, Apple themselves were not finding it easy to incorporate the next-gen fingerprint scanners either and rumor has it that there's no guarantee as to how the iPhone 8 OLED will be sporting its fingerprint scanner when it comes out later in the year.


Strangely enough, it's the Chinese manufacturer Vivo who is reportedly ahead of both the big guns and has already implemented the technology in one of their upcoming smartphones, which they are going to unveil in this very month (June 28) at the MWC Shanghai. I am really looking forward to this one, what about you?

Vivo is no longer just another Chinese manufacturer trying to copy Apple; as a matter of fact, it has not only risen as a global smartphone OEM to reckon with, one can go as far as saying that the Chinese company has managed to beat both Samsung and Apple when it comes to introducing true innovation. If you are wondering why anyone would think so, then you probably don't know that Vivo has already showcased the in-display, under the screen fingerprint scanner with its Vivo X20 Plus UD smartphone, that both Apple and Samsung have failed to do, even after repeated attempts by the latter in the last year or so. As if that was not impressive enough, take a look at the leaked shots of this smartphone from Vivo, which will likely be coming in with the in-screen fingerprint scanner and this gorgeous, truly bezel-less display.



Sources are unsure whether this is the Vivo Xplay 7 or not, but it could very well be. It would be really interesting to see if Vivo also packs in a 4K resolution in that beautiful display, just like the rumors had been predicting. If they do, that would make Vivo the only company apart from Sony to have a smartphone with a 4K display. It is quite possible that the upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC will be powering the device as well, alongside an internal storage capacity of 256GB/512GB. Would you buy this beauty if it became available in your country?

Vivo has apparently done what Samsung could not and Apple was only planning to. The famous in-screen fingerprint scanner which has so far eluded all devices till date, has been brought forth and showcased on a Vivo smartphone.


The Qualcomm fingerprint scanner which was put into effect at the show on a Vivo Xplay 6 prototype was announced earlier at the same show. It detects ultrasonic fingerprint signals through OLED displays up to 1200um and is more secure than any other fingerprint scanners that are available on smartphones at the moment. Check out the GIF image which we can now look at, thanks to Engadget.


The fingerprint scanner works underwater and doesn't care much even when your phone or your fingers are dirty. There are two points to be noted though. Engadget reports that the actual fingerprint recognition is much slower than what we are used to and also that the display was only able to detect the fingerprint from one particular place on the display. In theory however, the whole display should be able to detect your fingerprints flawlessly. Then again, this is just a prototype that we are looking at and things will definitely improve once the ultrasonic technology and the smartphone is ready for commercial release.

It has been a long time since the rumours about Vivo's next gen flagship smartphone surfaced. In fact this news goes back to 2014 and at that time they were supposed to be one of the pioneers in implementing Snapdragon 810 SoC. Quite evident that it didn't happen and now Snapdragon 810 is no way Qualcomm's best chip. At the same time people are looking forward to the XPlay 5, which is supposed to be available from March 1. At this point one important feature has been changed to another - this device will be the first one to come with 6 GB RAM.


But, don't consider this as a rumor. This has been leaked from the AnTuTu 6 benchmark test and even though we don't see 6GB being mentioned clearly, the 162,610 points mentioned in the leak is close to 30K more than other devices available in the database. We are also not exactly sure whether 2GB of extra memory can result in such a boost. In addition to this, there is a banner which states that the XPlay 5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6GB RAM. Also there are speculations about a 5.5 inch display too.


UPDATE: A tipster has revealed another piece of info about the Vivo XPlay 5 - this smartphone will feature Hi-Fi 3.0, which is most probably a cutting-edge audio processing chip, similar to rest of the Vivo devices like the X6 Plus.
