Clear ID

The launch of the Vivo X20 Plus UD was highly anticipated. Vivo, one of the top five smartphone manufacturers in the world became the first company to unveil a phone with an in-display fingerprint sensor. The Vivo X20 Plus UD is not a prototype or a concept, it is a consumer-ready device with a fingerprint sensor placed inside the display.

Now, the company has made officially launched the device in China. UD, presumably, stands for “under display”. It will go on sale in China starting February 1st at a price of CNY 3598 (Rs. 36100 approx.).

Specifications

The Vivo X20 Plus UD is basically the Vivo X20 Plus, with an in-display fingerprint sensor instead. It has a 6.43 inch Super AMOLED display with a 2160 x 1080 px resolution which translates to an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset powers the device. The Vivo X20 Plus UD has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage which is further expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card.

The smartphone is powered by a 3900 mAh battery. The Vivo X20 Plus UD runs Android 7 Nougat out of the box. Since Android 8 Oreo was launched in August of 2017, this news is a bit disappointing.

To the back, it has a dual-camera setup consisting of a 24MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture and OIS along with a 5MP sensor. To the front of the phone is a 12MP sensor with a soft LED flash and an f/2.0 aperture.

What Is Clear ID?

Clear ID lets users OEMs embed a fingerprint sensor under the display. Synaptics claims that it has a failure rate of 1 in 50,000 which, for a first gen product, is admirable. Early reviews of the device are in and mostly paint a positive picture. People have praised the accuracy of the sensor after initial usage. While it is slower than the OnePlus 5T, it is hard to complain when the process feels so futuristic.

The fingerprint sensor sits between the mainboard and the OLED panel where it illuminates the finger and then processes the beams of light. Hence, this technology will not work on LCD panel, at least for now.

Vivo has already listed the device on its official website in China. However, there is no word on its global availability yet. Considering the precedence that this phone has set, Vivo would want to launch the smartphone in other markets as well, since there will be a lot of suitors for a new technology like Clear ID.
