On the official YouTube channel Vivo has a teaser of a smartphone with a built-in display biometric fingerprint module.
Sensor placed over the display panel, but the sensor corresponds to only a small portion of the screen. It would be convenient to be able to unlock the phone by touching the right thumb anywhere on the screen. In Vivo noted that this has increased the cost of the product, but it is possible that the sensor will still be much more common — the ability to recognize fingerprints will give the lower half of the screen.
