Vivo X20 Plus UD with in-display fingerprint sensor was licensed by TENAA in China. The company had showcased the world’s first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning technology on the Vivo X20 Plus in CES 2018. Even though the handset looks like the Vivo X20 Plus, it does not have a square rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Based on the ‘UD’ nomenclature, it is anticipated that the smartphone will have an ‘under display’ fingerprint scanner.
In terms of specifications, the Vivo X20 Plus UD will game a 6.43-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, according to the Chinese certification website TENAA’s list. The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core chip and it features 4GB RAM. If it comes to the camera, the Vivo X20 Plus UD sports a dual camera setup in the trunk, with a 12-megapixel lens and a 5-megapixel lens. On the front, the handset will include a 12-megapixel camera.
Internal storage of this Vivo phone could be 128GB, together with support for expansion up to 256GB. It will be powered by a 3800mAh battery. Connectivity features mention from the TENAA page include Bluetooth, USB support, and 4G Internet. The handset’s dimensions are believed to be 165.2×80.02×7.35mm, and its weight 183.1 gram.
The brand new development emerges weeks following the Chinese firm announced its venture with Synaptics to bring its native in-display fingerprint scanning technology called Transparent ID. The in-display fingerprint scanning technology on the upcoming Vivo smartphone sits between the glass security along with OLED panel. According to Synaptics, the proprietary technology is as faster as other biometrics methods such as 3D facial recognition such as Apple’s Face ID and is highly secured, also.
Earlier, Synaptics had maintained that as many as 70 million components of in-display fingerprint detectors will be available this year. Mainly developed for thin-bezel OLED display panels using all the taller-than-usual 18:9 aspect ratio, the Synaptics Clear ID detectors are primarily designed to replace the widely accessible fingerprint detection solutions.
To remember, the Vivo X20 Plus UD has been spotted on China’s 3C certification website earlier this month, together with the UD probably implying the beneath screen fingerprint detector. Vivo had told Gadgets 360 at CES it wasn’t sure if the X20 Plus branding could be retained for the phone with under-display fingerprint sensor when it is finally launched.
