Earlier this year, we covered one of the most interesting tech companies to come out of China, called Vivo.
While it may not have name recognition, Vivo has been taking the smartphone world by storm over the past year.
And at Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2019, which is taking place this week, the company unveiled the fastest charging tech we’ve seen yet.
If you’ve never heard of Vivo, it was actually the first tech company to debut a phone with a fingerprint scanner hidden underneath its display.
Now, lots of phones use this under-screen fingerprint tech, including Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and the OnePlus 6T.
Vivo is working to make its under-display fingerprint scanners even bigger, so you can put your finger on any part of the phone’s screen to unlock the device.
