Apple and Samsung worked really hard to manufacture under the display fingerprint last years flagship but they did not complete it on time. Samsung S8, S8 plus and Note 8 carried similar design with fingerprint on back, iPhone X was launched with only Face ID.
Many iPhone users find FaceID not as much secure as Touch ID so they chose iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, wait is over as Chinese manufacturer Vivo recently stunned the industry when it announced the Vivo APEX concept flagship model packing a Snapdragon 845 chip, pop-up selfie camera and bezel-less design.
The company recently started teasing a new model dubbed X21 which is billed to launch on March 19. Th company had earlier released a posted pointing at the launch date. Now, a new teaser has been released on the official Vivo Weibo page which confirms the presence of an under-glass fingerprint sensor on the Vivo X21.
Apart from confirming the presence of an under display fingerprint sensor like the one featured on the Vivo X20 Plus UD version, the Weibo post invariably reveals that the model is already in production. Weibo usually detects the smartphone from which a message was posted and in this case, the smartphone is identified as Vivo X21 Screen fingerprint phone. So, the model won’t be launched while we still have to wait a couple of months before it will go on sale just like the APEX.
Back to the teaser, the size of the fingerprint on the picture seems to also confirm speculations that the fingerprint sensor will cover up to half of the entire display. This is expected to be more flexible and an upgrade over that of the Vivo X20 which is restricted to just a part of the screen. The Vivo X21 is also expected to pack a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with a screen ratio as high as 94%. The smartphone is also expected to come equipped with Vivo’s newly developed Super HDR technology.
