With newer smartphones being introduced with “FullView” displays, most manufacturers are still trying to find an ideal place for a fingerprint sensor. Samsung had gone with a rear-mounted unit while Apple has ditched it completely on the iPhone X. Interestingly, Huawei had managed to squeeze one on the bottom chin of its Huawei Mate 10 and honor View10.
It’s no secret that Chinese smartphone maker, vivo, wants to be the first to embed a fingerprint sensor on the screen itself. Last year they had a showcase using Qualcomm’s Sense ID technology and now they want to convince the world that they are one step closer in introducing one on a phone that you can actually buy.

Batteries on smartphones will deteriorate over time and it all depends on the way you charge your device. For most people, the typical habit is to leave your smartphone charging overnight. This practice is often frowned upon as trickle charging to keep your phone’s battery constantly at 100% could shorten its overall lifespan. But what else can you do if you need a fully charged device for the next busy day?
To solve this charging dilemma, there’s a smart charging cable called Charby Sense and it’s intelligent enough to stop charging once your phone has hit 100%. This is probably the only charging cable you’ll ever need and it’s made by a Malaysian startup consisting of UTM graduates.
