Tech This Week: Vivo X21 In-Display Finger Scan Technology

This innovation replaced the rear fingerprint sensor not only to achieve a sleek and unified design but also to offer an immersive smartphone experience. So how does this the fingerprint scanner work?

 Vivo X21’s In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology 

When my finger touches the screen for unlocking, the Vivo X21’s Super AMOLED display emits light to illuminate the finger. The optical fingerprint sensor below the OLED display captures the light reflected by the fingerprint. Based on the reflected light from the unique ridges on the fingerprint, the sensor processes the optical signals to deliver crisp and sharp fingerprint images for matching.

Moreover, when fingerprint recognition is needed, such as when the screen is off and for unlocking apps, a fingerprint recognition icon will appear on the screen for users to press for immediate authentication. Otherwise, the fingerprint icon is invisible to ensure a seamless mobile experience. The current unlocking speed is only 0.6 second.

Perfecting the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology was no easy feat as it was a huge challenge to integrate the sensor to the Vivo X21’s internal design and screen. Vivo had to redesign the internal structure of the phone to make this vision come to life. 

At MWC Shanghai 2017, Vivo unveiled the industry’s first Vivo Under-Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution. Then at CES 2018, the global smartphone brand displayed a ready-to-produce smartphone with the world’s first In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. 

The Vivo X21 with the pioneering In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology is available for Php29,999 at these participating stores.

Vivo Hoop Championship

It's been a while since I watched basketball. It's one of the most exciting Filipino sports. A few months ago, Vivo launched the Vivo Hoop Championship Plus wherein Vivo gives hoop fans chance to play ball at Hoop Battle Championship Philippines.

Filipino basketball fans nationwide now have another tournament to keep monitor. The Vivo Hoop Battle Championship Philippines has officially started its knockout rounds.
