Vivo keeps improving NEX’s in-display fingerprint reader with a new update

by Michele Ingelido 0

Vivo NEX belongs to the third series of mobile phones by Vivo sporting a comfortable and futuristic in-display fingerprint reader. However, in-display fingerprint readers based on the chip released by Synaptics in late 2017 are not as fast and accurate as the traditional optical fingerprint readers. But do not worry: Vivo is continuously working on improving the performance of its in-screen fingerprint reader. After a first update released days ago, a new update is seeding on the latest flagship. According to reports, it has a size of 301.07 MB and it includes improvements for the in-display fingerprint reader of the Vivo NEX S and A.

An official changelog has been released alongside the update and it mentions optimizations to fingerprint recognition logic to improve fingerprint recognition efficiency. The update brings the number of version of Funtouch OS (Vivo’s own Android fork) to 1.16.5 and the improvements to the fingerprint scanner are not the only ones present in the changelog. System performance and stability have been improved as well, so you should get a smoother and more stable experience while using your device. Further, there are optimizations to the compatibility of the operating system with third-party apps, as well as improvements to the Bluetooth compatibility and stability while the phone is connected to a car.

Jovi virtual assistant based on AI has been updated too. In detail, the wake-up system and the AI scene recognition have been improved, as well as the processing of portrait light effects. Further, there are optimizations to the beauty mode, internet performance, and network adaptability. And this is not the only update released since the phone was launched: the previous one brought Funtouch OS to v1.15.7 with a size of 95.23 MB.
