The Vivo Xplay 7 has been revealed as the first smartphone to ship featuring under-display fingerprint authentication technology. Clear ID, developed by Synaptics, is twice as fast as 3D facial recognition systems like Apple's Face ID.

The under-display biometric fingerprint sensor tech announced by Synaptics last week will debut on the Vivo Xplay 7, according to Forbes. When Synaptics introduced Clear ID, it said that it would appear on a top-five OEM vendor handset in January, with Vivo now singled out as the vendor concerned. It could debut as early as CES 2017 and beat Samsung to market in doing so.

Forbes has had a chance to play with the Vivo Xplay 7 ahead of its launch and says the new technology is very promising. It is said to be fast, simply and responsive with the only caveat being that it required pressing the ‘On’ button to activate. At that point, an image of a fingerprint illuminates the display prompting the user to touch it. Forbes expect Vivo to introduce a ‘tap-to-wake’ function before it hits the market to make the authentication process even easier.

According to Synaptics, its Clear ID technology is twice as fast as 3D facial recognition systems like Apple’s Face ID, but remains relatively secure. Synaptics says that it has used AI to develop an adaptive fingerprint template matching system that helps to protect the system from being spoofed. It also uses TLS protocol support, ECC authentication and AES encryption on the sensor to encrypt data going to the processor.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
