Rumors have been circulating around for years about big companies like Samsung and Apple attempting to integrate fingerprint sensor into smartphones’ displays — and now someone’s actually done it. Vivo, a major Chinese smartphone brand has announced the X20 Plus UD, the world’s first ever smartphone to ship with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
The pre-production unit of the device was revealed at CES 2018 earlier this month. The phone is the result of collaboration between Vivo and Synaptics, the US-based sensor maker.
Although the X20 Plus UD is getting all the attention because of its invisible fingerprint sensor, but its other specs are pretty great as well. Its metal body is just 7.35mm thick with a 6.43″ 1080p OLED display and the 18:9 aspect ratio.
Powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 660, the phone offers 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage with microSD expansion. Dual cameras of 12MPs on the back, a large 3,905mAh unit make the device a pretty good package overall.
The Vivo X20 Plus UD is only being released in China for now and there is no word on pricing yet.
