The emerging Chinese manufacturer of selfie smartphones, Vivo, has released the world’s first ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone at the Consumer’s Electronics Show 2018.
Integrated with an in-display fingerprint scanning technology, the Vivo X20 Plus UD offers consumers an unprecedented mobile experience that defines a new era of mobile interaction. This also indicates an effort from the company to further strengthen the security features of smartphones.
The newest addition to the X-series inherits the same hardware specs from its successor, the X20 Plus, which was launched last September 2017.
“With our efforts in extensive consumer research and long-term R&D investment, Vivo is well positioned to pioneer the development of fingerprint scanning technology. We first presented a prototype of our fingerprint scanning solution at MWC Shanghai 2017 based on an ultrasonic sensor, and have remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones. Today’s showcase of a ready-to-produce in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone featuring an optical fingerprint sensor is a big leap forward in bringing consumers this long-awaited, futuristic mobile experience. We are very excited to make it available to consumers soon.” said Alex Feng, Senior Vice President of Vivo.
Showcasing of the world’s first phone to boast in-display fingerprint scanning for mass-production marks a significant leap forward in the industry’s development, taking users’ smartphone experience to a new level. The availability of Vivo’s first in-display fingerprint scanning smartphone will be announced in early 2018.
