The Clear ID was recently honored as Component of the Year by the Society for Information Display (SID), following Best of Show recognition at CES 2018 from several leading industry publications, including Android Authority, Android Central, Digital Trends, Tech Radar, Toms Guide, and CES itself. Synaptics’ Clear ID optical in-display fingerprint sensor family is the world’s first mass production solution for smartphones, retailing on vivo’s X20 Plus UD and X21 UD models.
Designed to enable smartphones with bezel-free, button-free infinity displays, Synaptics’ Clear ID in-display fingerprint sensors are placed in a natural location directly in the OLED touchscreen. Clear ID is faster than alternative biometrics such as 3D facial recognition, and very convenient with one-touch biometric authentication.
“The smartphone industry’s rapid shift towards bezel-free OLED infinity displays is driving the adoption of our in-display fingerprint sensors to enable the most natural user experience,” said Kevin Barber, SVP and GM, Mobile Division, Synaptics.
