Vivo's Apex

Vivo's Apex 

The concept phone is called Apex, and its headline feature is what Vivo describes as “Half-Screen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology.” The idea here is that instead of placing your finger on a thumbnail-sized icon to unlock the phone, you’ll be able to do so in a much larger area of the display.

On Apex, the usable scanning area isn’t quite half the screen — it’s more like a third. Or maybe two-fifths. But in any case, the area is big enough to demonstrate the tech's advantage; this way, you can pretty much just pick up the phone and unlock it without really having to think about it. You're also able to require simultaneous input from two different fingerprints for extra security, or for times when you might want to protect data shared by two people.
Vivo isn’t saying whether the scanner is provided by Synaptics, as was the case with the X20 Plus UD. It works the same way, requiring an OLED screen and the ability to light up the surface of your finger upon contact. It isn’t quite as fast as a conventional fingerprint reader, and I actually found that it works better if you press your thumb flat against the screen rather than only using the tip. The important thing, though, is that it works.

The most obvious one of these is the selfie camera. Some phone makers have gotten around this with notches, others by relocating the camera below the screen so that you have to hold the phone upside down. But Apex’s answer is both inventive and kind of cute — the 8-megapixel camera is hidden behind the screen and pops up like a periscope when needed. It takes 0.8 seconds to ready itself and makes a little whirring sound.
