Earlier this week, biometrics company Synaptics announced the development of Clear FS9500, the "world's first in-display fingerprint sensor for smartphones". With rumors suggesting that Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S9 will keep the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone and Apple unlikely to roll out an iPhone X successor until the fall, Vivo seems like it will beat other smartphone makers to the punch with a sensor embedded right into the phone's screen. In order for it to work, the finger has to be illuminated, so that the fingerprint scanner can read the reflections of the finger scan.
The Synaptics Clear ID fingerprint scanner will be able to work on any smartphone with OLED displays and it will only activate when it's needed. Synaptics, in fact, claims its Clear ID is twice as fast as Apple's Face ID. The technology that Synaptics has come out with, aka Clear ID, is said to be fast and simple.

Earlier in the year, Qualcomm revealed to Digital Trends that it expected in-screen fingerprint sensors to launch in consumer products beginning in summer 2018.
