Vivo has finally unveiled the world’s first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor. Meet the Vivo X20 Plus UD! It’s an upgraded version of the Vivo X20 Plus with the new Synaptics sensor and few subtle changes under the hood. The Chinese OEM initially showcased the smartphone at the CES 2018 just a few weeks back.
The Vivo X20 Plus UD looks exactly similar to its predecessor. It features a large 6.43-inch Super AMOLED 18:9 FHD+ display. The Synaptics made in-display fingerprint sensor is placed right under the display. It’s capable of unlocking the smartphone under 6-7 ms. The sensor works using a photoelectric reflection technology for determining your finger.
Apart from unlocking the smartphone users can use the in-display sensor for making payments through AliPay or WeChat. To make it convenient for users to unlock the phone, the Always-on-Display portrays an image of a fingerprint right above the area housing the sensor. So, users can simply tap on the area to unlock the Vivo X20 Plus UD.
The internals of the all-new Vivo X20 UD hasn’t changed much over its predecessor. It still packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 octa-core processor and 4GB RAM. Moreover, the smartphone comes with 128GB of onboard storage, besides housing a microSD card slot for memory expansion. The Vivo X20 Plus comes with a dual 12MP + 5MP rear camera setup. Additionally, the phone comes with a 12MP selfie shooter. Incidentally, the X20 Plus UD houses a new 256GB Vivo Image Cube sensor processor.
The flagship Vivo smartphone comes with Face Unlock, AK4376A DAC, and 3,800mAh battery. In terms of connectivity, it features WiFi 802.11 b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, micro USB and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unlike its predecessor, the new Vivo X20 Plus UD doesn’t feature a fingerprint sensor on the rear, as the same is now present in the front.
