On OLED screens the notch doesn't have to visible. It will only be visible if the background to the status bar is not black.

Apple made a point of making the notch visible and insisting that developers don't hide the notch.

The Vivo X21 phone has an optical under-the-display optical fingerprint sensor, sold in India a couple of weeks ago. It is possible that the article you refer to is about ultrasonic under-the-display finger print readers, I can't remember.
