Vivo, a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has already announced the launch of the first-ever fingerprint scanner that is built into the display of the smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is now going on in Las Vegas till 12th Jan 2018. All you need to do is press the finger you want to register on the phone screen in the place where the home button would be.
