Haha, welcome ... to the past.
An active biometric in the age of passive biometrics. After using an iPhone X for a few days you can't go back to this childishness...
Dats4794, 09 Jan 2018Now thats awesome, but I'm not a fan of vivo.vivo is just a name phone itself is important
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2018I don't quite understand why side finger print sensors aren't tried out first before this more... moreI hate fingerprint in side, like in the power button.. What if somebody just wanna see the lock screen with its plethora of notifications and widgets and shortcuts at the same place, it has some value..
So if the fingerprint reader stops working we need to change the display ! I m sure apple will be eager to implement this
Now thats awesome, but I'm not a fan of vivo.
They'd probably make more money selling the component.
yes Sony has it but it makes the side bezels considerably bigger, since the trend now is bezel-less display, the only logical solutions are having the sensor at the back, or under the screen
Kiyasuriin, 09 Jan 2018Underscreen. the best option. Not reach to my expectation coz still need to tab at specific location/place. Mostly people expect it should place under the whole screen which user can tab finger print anywhere on screen.
I don't quite understand why side finger print sensors aren't tried out first before this more expensive solution? Sony can do it and it is out of the way and on the front. This underscreen sensor surely has to be in a specific section of the screen in order to be used? A bottom bezel maybe?
Big guns, 09 Jan 2018So that it could be a testing ground for big guns like Apple and Samsung. I am sure that this ... moreYeah I feel the same way. And maybe OnePlus' too as vivo is under the same parent company as OnePlus. They maybe have it first but i don't think it will be really good. At least not to apple/samsung standard.
Smart move for Vivo. being the first to test so others will know how to use it properly!
LG superfan, 09 Jan 2018Innovation coming from overpriced chinese brand lol cant believe it now its time other copy it... moreBeing first is awesome, it shows they don't just copy 2 years later(unnamed brand/s). Another thing is if they can stay as true to usability as to looks. Apple and Samsung went for looks.
Why are the innovative companies are always the underrated one??
AnonD-88005, 09 Jan 2018Who would have tell that Vivo would be the first to achieve this. Not even the Samsung S9 will... moreSamsung is sensible enough to implement this technology when the time is appropriate. They are not in hurry and that is how it should really be. Being "first" always isn't everything. It is about who implements it better in speed, reliability and extra feature-packed.
Samsung showcased their foldable-screen technology a long time back but they did not hurry in actually implementing this and mould it into a smartphone.
Samsung is still a leading smartphone manufacturing company while VIVO is not.
You see the amount of hype when today VIVO unveiled it? It is not even close to 100%.
Wanna see the hype when Samsung implements the same technology in their smartphone? Wait for it. ;)
Hope gsmarena does a review or atleast a hands on
Unreliable(for at least another 7000 people) face id, FP on back like everybody, not functioning on side(even probably dead) and under screen. What would you choose?
Innovation coming from overpriced chinese brand lol cant believe it now its time other copy it and make it better thanks vivo for beta testing
