Vivo introduced its new fingerprint sensor device to CES 2018, but did not provide any concrete detail about its internal hardware. Fortunately, the phone is almost in the final form and handed over to China's TENAA commission for approval to market on this market. Fortunately, the TENAA database is open and provides full details of the device, such as its name, Vivo X20 UD, as well as real pictures of it.
The Vivo X20 UD will be the first smartphone with a fingerprint sensor available in the market, an important event in the industry that will give rise to a trend throughout the year 2018. It will be equipped with a 6.43 "diagonal OLED display with FullHD + resolution, but it will not be as big as it seems at first glance. We are dealing with a model with very thin edges above and below the display, which considerably reduce the size of the terminal.
Inside, Vivo chose to integrate upper-end array hardware, making the phone a mid-range premium segment. We're dealing with a Snapdragon 660 chipset, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage and a 12 + 5 megapixel dual-camera system on the back. There is a single 5 megapixel sensor on the face. Even on the outside, we do not have big surprises, the phone retaining the design used in the past by Vivo for the previous models, but giving up the fingerprint sensor on the back.
The truth is that if the X20 UD is not the first fingerprint device in the display, it would go unnoticed, especially in Europe, where this brand is not officially sold. We hope to see the first Western market phones with this feature at the Mobile World Congress. We currently do not know how much the new Vivo X20 UD will cost and when it will be available in China. Since the phone is already in the hands of TENAA, the launch is most likely a few weeks away.
