Underscreen fingerprint scanner is in development by Qualcomm and Vivo and an internal presentation of the next flagship with the technology just appeared to shed more light on the project. According to a weibo post, the first phone will be the vivo Xplay7. It should arrive in 2018 with dual cameras on the back and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset.

The Xplay7 will allegedly have an IMX401 camera sensor by Sony that might allow 4x optical zoom. The front screen is expected to have a high screen-to-body ratio, with the front camera cut into the display.
We’ve already seen a prototype with underscreen fingerprint scanne, but the Xplay7 will allegedly be the first device to make the technology available to the end user.

The slides look like they are part of an internal presentation, but it is more likely these are very early drawings so the final what the vivo Xplay7 might look very differently.
