Vivo getting one up on Apple?

Vivo also achieved another technological feat. Unlike Apple, it managed to incorporate a fingerprint scanner into the screen itself. The reader sits directly below the glass, and you can can just rest your finger on the front of the phone near the bottom to unlock it, with no need for a dedicated home button or fingerprint reader anywhere else on the device that would have reduced display size.

A new smartphone found a novel way to make the entire front of the phone one giant screen

Sure, a slide-out camera is nice, but I’m pretty sure we’ll see both the camera and the fingerprint scanner sitting behind the display in the near future. Just a question of who’ll get there first.
