Vivo is expected to launch a smartphone with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. The company has started to tease the smartphone on its social media channels ahead of the Mobile World Congress 2017 Shanghai. The tradeshow is scheduled to take place on June 28 in Shanghai.

The teased image features  a design that resembles a fingerprint passing through a smartphone screen, the tagline is  “Unlock the Future”. This lends more credence to speculation that Vivo could be preparing to come with a smartphone, featuring a fingerprint scanner embedded into the phone’s display.

While nothing is known about this new mysterious Vivo smartphone as of now, but few reports suggest that the device in question is Vivo’s upcoming X9 Plus. Rumours suggest that the Vivo X9 Plus will have an optical fingerprint sensor embedded in the display.

Earlier this week, an alleged video appeared online showcasing on-screen fingerprint sensing technology by Vivo. The four-second video showed a user unlocking the phone by simply long pressing on the screen. The handset also included a dual rear camera setup. Although, the authenticity of the video couldn’t be established.
