When it was presented at CES 2018, the Vivo X20 Plus UD had no name or release date, but the world's first phone with a fingerprint scanner under the screen is now available in China.
It's not a completely new phone, however, the X20 Plus UD is an updated version of the X20 Plus, with the aforementioned technology in place of a rear fingerprint scanner. To unlock the X20 Plus UD, it is as simple as putting your finger on the screen
Regarding the specifications, it is the same as the X20 Plus, which means a Super AMOLED screen of 18: 9, 6.43 inches (2.160×1.080 pixels), Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 4 GB of RAM and two 12 megapixel rear cameras. It will retail at around 3,600 Chinese yuan, which becomes $ 570, £ 400 or AU $ 700.
While the X20 Plus UD, the first phone to use technology under the screen, expects to see more phones with similar characteristics at the Mobile World Congress 2018 in March, where big brands like Samsung and LG will have new phones to show off. Also, given Vivo's close relationship with Oppo and OnePlus, it is very likely that you will see the phones of these two Chinese phone brands with fingerprint scanners under the screen very soon.
For now, however, if you are thinking about getting one, you will have to wait, since this phone is only available in China, and it is not known when it will be available in the international markets of Vivo. There is always the option of third-party online retailers, but it is likely that the phone comes without the Google Play Store installed, so be careful.
