Vivo X20 Plus UD with in-display fingerprint detector was licensed by TENAA at China. The organization had showcased the world’s very first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning technology on the Vivo X20 Plus at CES 2018. Even though the handset looks similar to the Vivo X20 Plus, it does not have a square rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. Based on the ‘UD’ nomenclature, it’s expected that the smartphone is going to have an ‘under screen’ fingerprint scanner.

Concerning specifications, the Vivo X20 Plus UD will game a 6.43-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2160×1080 pixels, according to the Chinese certificate website TENAA’s list. The smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core chip and it comprises 4GB RAM. If it comes to the camera, the Vivo X20 Plus UD sports a double camera setup at the back, with a 12-megapixel lens and a 5-megapixel lens.

Internal storage of this Vivo phone could be 128GB, together with assistance for growth up to 256GB. It’ll be powered by a 3800mAh battery. Connectivity features cite in 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 own weight 183.1 g.

The new development emerges weeks following the Chinese firm announced its partnership using Synaptics to deliver its native in-display fingerprint scanning technology called Clear ID. The in-display fingerprint scanning technology on the coming Vivo smartphone sits between the glass protection and OLED panel. Based on Synaptics, the proprietary technology is as quicker as alternative biometrics methods like 3D facial recognition for example Apple’s Face ID and can be highly secured, too.

Earlier, Synaptics’d maintained 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 with all the taller-than-usual 18:9 aspect ratio, the Synaptics Clear ID sensors are primarily designed to replace the widely available fingerprint sensing solutions.

To recall, the Vivo X20 Plus UD has been spotted on China’s 3C certification site earlier this month, together with the UD probably suggesting the beneath screen fingerprint sensor. Vivo had told Gadgets 360 at CES it wasn’t certain if the X20 Plus branding would be retained for the phone with under-display fingerprint sensor when it is finally launched.
