Vivo X20 Plus UD with in-display fingerprint sensor announced

Vivo has announced X20 Plus UD with in-display fingerprint sensor in China, as it had promised.  The smartphone shares similar specifications as the original X20 Plus, but it has in-display fingerprint scanner instead of fingerprint sensor on the back so that users unlock the smartphone through one-touch fingerprint scanning directly on the display.

It uses Clear ID FS9500 optical fingerprint sensor from Synaptics. At the announcement during CES 2018 Vivo said that its In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology outperforms other authentication solutions available for full-screen smartphones in many aspects.
