Synaptics Clear ID Optical In-Display Fingerprint Sensors Featured on New Vivo X21 UD Smartphones
SAN JOSE, Calif. – March 21, 2018 – Synaptics Incorporated (NASDAQ: SYNA), the leading developer of human interface solutions, today announced its FS9500 Clear ID™ optical in-display fingerprint sensors are featured on the new Vivo X21 UD smartphone. The X21 UD is Vivo’s second-generation smartphone featuring Clear ID -- following the X20 Plus UD phone that was showcased at CES 2018 with Synaptics and now sold at retail. Synaptics’ FS9500 Clear ID optical in-display fingerprint sensor family is the world’s first mass production solution for smartphones.
Designed to enable smartphones with infinity displays, Synaptics’ Clear ID in-display fingerprint sensors are placed in a natural location directly in the OLED touchscreen, eliminating the need for buttons and bezels. A fingerprint icon in the display guides the user and disappears upon authentication. Clear ID is faster than alternative biometrics such as 3D facial, and very convenient with one-touch biometric authentication. Clear ID is also available with Synaptics SentryPoint™ technology, offering OEMs a wide-range of unique and highly secure authentication software features including Quantum Matcher™ for adaptive fingerprint template matching and authentication.
“It’s been terrific working with Vivo to bring cutting-edge leadership and differentiation to market with Clear ID. The fast-paced industry-shift towards bezel-free OLED infinity displays has driven fingerprint authentication into the touchscreen display area of smartphones and Synaptics proud to be mass-production-ready to take on volume demand,” said Kevin Barber, senior vice president and general manager, Mobile Division, Synaptics.
