At the recently held Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, Vivo had showcased the X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint version as the world’s first smartphone to feature under-display fingerprint scanner. At the start of this month, the smartphone had bagged 3C certification and around a week ago the smartphone had received certification from TENAA. Previous rumors had suggested that it would be launching as Vivo X20 Plus UD. Today, Vivo has officially confirmed that the Vivo X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint variant will be unveiled to the world on Jan. 24.
Vivo will be holding an unveil event for the smartphone in Beijing, China on Jan. 24. It will begin at 7:30 PM local time. The launch poster does not confirm on the specifications or pricing of the smartphone. However, previous leaks have revealed that its specs will be quite similar to that of the regular X20 Plus.
Vivo X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint version will be featuring Clear ID 9500 optical under-display fingerprint sensor by Synaptics. The sensor will be placed between the glass panel and the OLED screen. Apart from unlocking the X20 Plus in about 0.6 or 0.7 seconds, the in-display fingerprint scanner can be also used for authenticating payments.
Coming to the specs of the Vivo X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint version, it will be arriving with a 6.43-inch OLED screen. It will be supporting FHD+ resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. The Snapdragon 660 chipset along with 4 GB of RAM will be present under the hood of the phone. It will be featuring a native storage of 128 GB. It will come pre-installed with Android 7.1.2 Nougat OS.
The dual camera setup featuring a 12-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor will be residing on the back panel of the phone. It will be coming with a selfie snapper of 12-megapixel. A 3,800mAh battery will be powering the X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint version.
A previous report had revealed that the Vivo X20 Plus in-screen fingerprint variant would be carrying a price tag of 3,998 Yuan (~$625). This seems to be possible as the regular X20 Plus was introduced with a pricing of 3,498 Yuan (~$546).
