The ubiquitous fingerprint sensor: it's the most convenient way to unlock your smartphone or laptop, but it's always required its own reserved bastion of space on your device. Always, that is … until now. I’m MrMobile and here at CES 2018 I just went hands-on with the first fingerprint sensor that lives UNDER your phone's display. The Synaptics ClearID is an optical sensor that sits under the glass of an OLED screen; it's launching on a Vivo phone this year; and it's gonna change everything.

MrMobile's Under-Glass Fingerprint Sensor Hands-On was produced following a half-hour with a Vivo demo device at the Synaptics booth at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. As voiceover was recorded on-site, audio quality may differ from the standard MrMobile video.
