The Alife P1 Pro Uses the Same Sapphire Crystal Fingerprint Scanner Tech as the iPhone

by Martin 2

Blackview’s recently announced Alife P1 Pro flagship smartphone features a high-end design with high-end specifications. One of those specifications is the device’s home button that also acts as the device’s fingerprint scanner.

This home button fingerprint sensor design and the technology behind it are similar to the ones found on Apple’s popular iPhone devices such as the iPhone 5S, iPhone 6, and their other new products giving the P1 Pro that extra boost in value.
