Vivo X20 Plus UD with in-display fingerprint detector has been certified by TENAA at China. The organization had showcased the world’s very first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning technology to the Vivo X20 Plus at CES 2018. Although the handset appears similar to the Vivo X20 Plus, it doesn’t have a square rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Based on the ‘UD’ nomenclature, it is expected that the smartphone is going to 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 site TENAA’s listing. The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor and it comprises 4GB RAM. When it comes to the camera, the Vivo X20 Plus UD sports a dual camera setup at the back, using a 12-megapixel lens along with a 5-megapixel lens. On the front, the handset will include a 12-megapixel camera.
Internal storage of the Vivo phone could be 128GB, with assistance for growth up to 256GB. It will be powered by a 3800mAh battery. Connectivity features cite from the TENAA page include Bluetooth, USB support, and 4G Internet. The handset’s measurements are believed to be 165.2×80.02×7.35mm, and its weight 183.1 gram. Colour options will be Black Gold, Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Matte Black, the list suggests.
The new development emerges weeks following the Chinese firm announced its partnership with Synaptics to bring its native in-display fingerprint scanning technology called Transparent ID. The in-display fingerprint scanning technologies on the upcoming Vivo smartphone sits between the glass security along with OLED panel. According to Synaptics, the proprietary technologies is as faster as other biometrics methods like 3D facial recognition for example Apple’s Face ID and can be highly secured, also.
Earlier, Synaptics’d claimed that as many as 70 million components of in-display fingerprint sensors will be available this year. Mainly developed for thin-bezel OLED screen panels using the taller-than-usual 18:9 aspect ratio, the Synaptics Clear ID detectors are primarily designed to replace the widely available fingerprint sensing solutions.
To recall, the Vivo X20 Plus UD was seen on China’s 3C certification site earlier this month, together with the UD probably suggesting the under screen fingerprint sensor. Vivo had told Gadgets 360 at CES that it was not sure if the X20 Plus branding would be retained for the phone with under-display fingerprint sensor if it’s finally launched.
