The internet spent the better part of last year trying to work out if Apple would pull off a magic trick and release the first phone with a fingerprint sensor embedded into the display. When the iPhone X was officially unveiled last October, there was no fingerprint sensor in sight, and largely people have been happy with the Face ID sensor Apple came up with to replace it.
But rumors about in-display fingerprint readers just refuse to go away. Chinese companies like Huawei have been working to trial the technology in limited applications, and it certainly seems like a case of when and not if by this point. Of course, it's impossible to talk about in-screen fingerprint sensors without mentioning Samsung, which is rumored to have been spending some of its gargantuan R&D budget on ultrasonic fingerprint research for years.
