Vivo had us awe-struck when it showcased the smartphone with an In-display fingerprint sensor at the CES 2018. Numerous attempts had also been done by Apple to get credited for the innovation of the technology. But all those endeavors had gone in vain. The Chinese smartphone maker thrived, where the biggest tech giant Apple failed. So for this remarkable innovation, Vivo had been hailed throughout the show. In the show, many tech enthusiasts assumed it to be a prototype, which would take quite some time for the implementation. Proving all wrong, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer gave life to the innovative under display fingerprint sensor in its new smartphone, the Vivo X20 Plus UD.
The new smartphone has most of the specs cloned from the Vivo X20 Plus. With the ‘UD’ adhered in its name, the newbie implies for the all-hailed under display fingerprint sensor. The Vivo X20 Plus UD has narrow bezels across the border and the impressive 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display. With the bezel-less display and the 18:9 aspect ratio, the smartphone possesses the trendy design language.
The device is powered by the Snapdragon 660 Chipset backed by 4GB of RAM. The powerful and efficient chipset is boon for the buttery smooth performance on the device. And the ample 4GB of RAM provides a stronger assist. The onboard storage on the Vivo X20 Plus was 64GB. The enhanced UD variant got a little upgrade with 128GB of internal storage. There is also a privilege for the expansion up to 256GB via SD card but it uses the SIM 2 slot.
In terms of camera, the Vivo X20 Plus UD comes with the dual camera setup on the back. There is a secondary sensor of 5MP to assist the 12MP primary camera. Up front, there is 12MP camera dedicated for the selfies. To keep the things running, the smartphone inherits an impressive 3900mAh battery. And to accelerate the charging process, the Vivo X20 Plus UD is also gifted with the fast charging compatibility. With the charging setup of 5V, 4.5A, the smartphone does not require a long time for the replenishment.
And talking about the under display fingerprint sensor, Vivo partnered with Synaptics for the development. Dubbed as the Synaptics Clear ID sensor, this new scanner uses CMOS image sensor. Implanted under the display, this new sensor will be water resistant and will also be safe from scratches. The fingerprint unlocks the device without an issue. However, with the scanner under the display, the sensor is little slow and take a little more time for fingerprint registration (2 seconds) and unlocking the device (0.7 seconds).
