The race to implementing an under-display fingerprint sensor is close to its end, and it looks like Vivo will come out on top after all. The company has posted a subliminal image on its social media accounts that points towards an announcement at the ongoing CES 2018.

Vivo being the first OEM to implement this technology isn't surprising, of course. As early as Q3 2017, the company already had a working prototype which it teased in a video posted online. Nothing concrete surfaced until a few weeks ago, though, when Synaptics released a report that proved it had a fully implemented model of the technology. Rumors initially claimed the Vivo Xplay 7 would be the first device to sport the feature but recent developments point towards another device, the X20 Plus UD, being the one to have that honor instead. 

Vivo may be the first to deliver this feature but the coming months are certain to see other OEMs follow suit, with Chinese brands like Leagoo and Doogee also said to have similar offerings in the works. Admittedly a bit hard to believe, but only time will tell.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
