New Vivo X20 variant expected to launch with an under-the-display fingerprint sensor

After launching the X20 and X20 Plus smartphones in China around September last year, Chinese smartphone maker Vivo is reportedly set to unveil another variant of the phone with an under-the-display fingerprint sensor. The technology was earlier demoed by Vivo at MWC 2017 in Shanghai on the Vivo Xplay6.

The report by PhoneRadar claims that the device with model number BK1124 was spotted on 3C certification website under the name Vivo X20 Plus UD. The UD most probably stands for Under Display. It can be assumed that the X20 Plus UD will borrow quite a few of the features such as the camera and hardware from the Vivo X20.

However, these are just rumours and should be treated as such. We shall update you when more concrete information is available.
