Putting dual-cameras on a smartphone isn’t new but Samsung might be doing things differently to set it apart from the rest.

Having a bezel-less display appears to be a big deal right now. After Xiaomi introduced its Mi Mix, we’ve seen other manufacturers pushing a bigger display on a smaller footprint like the Galaxy S8, LG G6 and most recently, the Essential phone.

But, if the screen is going to dominate the entire front of the phone, where would the fingerprint sensor be?
Now it appears that vivo could be solving that problem with a new device that has a fingerprint sensor embedded underneath the display. Word has it that it could be revealed very soon at the end of this month.
