While the rest of the world debates whether there would be an on-screen fingerprint sensor on the Apple iPhone 8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Chinese phone maker Vivo might have beaten the two companies to the punch. 

Vivo appears to have posted a teaser image of embedded fingerprint sensor technology which will be announced next week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai. This could very well be the first phone with an on-screen fingerprint sensor.

If you recall, Vivo was the first to introduce a smartphone with 2K display in December 2013. We won't be surprised if Vivo managed to implement an embedded fingerprint sensor successfully on a mobile device.
