At the recently concluded Consumer Electronics Show, Vivo showcased a phone with an under-display fingerprint scanner. Most people focused on that singular feature and not the rest of the specs, not even the name.
Popular leaker Roland Quandt, did some digging and revealed that the phone is actually the Vivo X20Plus A, a variant of the X20Plus with its fingerprint sensor under the display. It turns out that the X20Plus A and the X20Plus UD from a few weeks ago are more or less the same device based on pictures of the latter that has now appeared on TENAA.
The Vivo X20Plus UD was first heard of a few weeks ago when it was seen getting its 3C certification. It was deduced that the UD in the name is short for Under Display – a hint at the fingerprint scanner residing beneath the screen.
According to TENAA, the Vivo X20Plus UD will have a 6.43” 20160 x 1080 OLED display. This is the same display size and resolution as the original X20Plus.
It will have 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and be powered by a 2.2GHz octa-core processor which is most probably the Snapdragon 660.
Just like its sibling, the Vivo X20Plus UD will have a 12MP + 5MP dual camera combo on the rear. Front facing camera will also remain a 12MP sensor.
However, the phone will come with a slightly smaller 3800mAh battery instead of 3900mAh. Its dimensions are also a tiny bit smaller at 165.2 × 80.02 × 7.35 (mm) but weight is now 183.1g.
The Vivo X20Plus UD is scheduled to launch later this month for ¥3698 (~$574). That is the same price as the original X20Plus with the same memory and storage configuration.
