There's little time to clear away the remnants of the New Year festivities before we are thrown straight into the world of 2018 tech and the Consumer Electronic Show. Movers and shakers from all over the tech world pitch up in Las Vegas every January to launch their latest must have products and provide insights into tomorrows technology.
This year was no different, with a host of new innovations announced from the likes of Samsung, LG and Panasonic.
But it was the lesser known Vivo who might just have stolen a march in the mobile world with the announcement of the worlds first in-display finger print sensor. Finger print technology is nothing new on mobile devices, in fact its been around for over 5 years. But its the under-the-screen capability that has got people talking. So far, no manufacturer has managed to successfully place a sensor under the pixels of a mobile display.
The worlds first fingerprint ID mobile display
With a boom in bezel free devices predicted for 2018, space on devices is at a premium and fingerprint ID somewhat of a stumbling block. Apple introduced face ID last year as a substitute to the fingerprint sensor, and perhaps, a result of the challenge of combining screen and fingerprint technology. Vivo's breakthrough in technology could now pave the way for companies to start mass producing the new 2018 mobile innovation.

Elsewhere around CES 2018, Samsung announced that their entire electronic range would be 'Internet of Things' ready by 2020. As this technology starts to become more than just a buzz word, many electronic firms are heavily investing in the future of smart tech. Whilst we can already manage many elements of our home and office from our mobile phones, the opportunities to utilize this tech is now gaining significant momentum. The ability to check the contents of your fridge or answer your front door all from the comfort of your desk looks set to boom in 2018.
