The Vivo X20 Plus UD has just surfaced in new renders, while its price point and release date also popped up, following the phone's TENAA (China's equivalent to the FCC) certification. The Vivo X20 Plus UD is basically a variant of the Vivo X20 Plus which comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Those of you who did not know, Vivo actually showcased this smartphone earlier this month, during CES 2018 in Las Vegas, though back then, the company did not reveal its name nor its specifications, even though the phone was available on the show floor for hands-ons and what not.

The Vivo X20 Plus UD comes with Synaptics' in-display fingerprint scanner, called 'Clear ID', and that fingerprint scanner works only with OLED panels, so the Vivo X20 Plus UD definitely sports such a panel. The display needs to be active for this fingerprint scanner to work, not the whole display, though, but a fingerprint image needs to pop up in the lower portion of the display signaling where you should put your finger, so you either need to hit the power key or pick the phone up from the table (for example) in order for that fingerprint image to appear, so that you can unlock the phone. That image also appears when you need to conduct some sort of a payment, and the phone is asking you to verify it's you via a fingerprint scanner. Vivo still did not confirm the name of this smartphone, so it is possible that it will not be called the Vivo X20 Plus UD, but something else completely. In any case, we should find out soon, as Vivo did say that it will release all the necessary info 'soon'.

As you can see in the provided images, the in-display fingerprint scanner is basically invisible, you can see that it's under the display under the right angle, when you actually hold the phone, but as already mentioned, this is an in-display fingerprint scanner (it actually sits under it), and not a capacitive one. The Vivo X20 Plus UD, or whatever the company opts to call it, will sport a 6.43-inch fullHD+ OLED display, while the device will be fueled by the Snapdragon 660 64-bit octa-core processor, and it will pack in 4GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. 12 and 5-megapixel shooters will be placed on the back of the device, while a 12-megapixel camera will be included on its front side. A 3,800mAh non-removable battery will also be a part of the package, and the source claims that the device will launch on January 25 with a 3,998 Yuan ($625) price tag.
