Vivo X20 Plus UD is Now Official


The much awaited Vivo X20 Plus UD has now been launched. The X20 Plus was unveiled by Vivo at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018.

The reason why this phone is getting so much attention is because of the under-screen fingerprint scanner. At CES, the X20 Plus managed to turn heads thanks to the new technology. Vivo is the only manufacturer that managed to get the technology on a phone with the help of the first screen fingerprint scanner, Clear ID FS9500, designed by Synaptics. Although slower than the usual fingerprint scanners, it does get the job done. And considering the fact that it is the first iteration, we can hope to see it getting faster.

The X20 Plus UD features a 6.43-inch display with a resolution of 1080 pixels. It’ll be powered by the Snapdragon 660 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. A 3800mAh battery will fuel the phone. On the camera front, the phone will be equipped with a dual camera setup of 24MP+5MP sensors while the front will have a 12MP sensor. The phone will come with Android Nougat 7.1.2.

The X20 Plus’ price has been pegged at 3998 Yuan, but the official price has yet to be revealed. Stay tuned!

      Vivo doesn’t use fake dual cams. Vivo/Oppo/OnePlus all use the same technology. In fact they are sitting on some camera technology that should be pretty damn amazing…we should see it in the XPlay 7 coming later this year.

        looking forward to the Xplay, those are always great handsets

        but honestly , an additional 2mp or 5mp sensor does not qualify for a competent second sensor imo

        if you want a dual cam, go for setups where the 2nd cam (monochrome sensor) has equal or higher pixel count than the colored one !

          You realize pixel count doesn’t really matter when it comes down to camera phones. If that’s all that mattered then OnePlus would have the best camera on the market due to it using a 16MP and 20MP camera at 27mm focal length(equal quality). Having high pixel count means little in phone situations if the camera doesn’t have software optimization and coding. In phones now a days, you can take the exact same camera lens and get different quality based on how you optimize it. That is the difference between the Pixel and the Nokia KeyONE.

          When it comes to dual camera setups the second cameras worth is based upon what the developers want it to do…is it a wide angle lens? Monochrome? Telephoto? Optical Zoom? Depending on what the other lens does, its not required that it has a high MP count, only that its coded well to perform its function.

          Also, Huawei the only major company that uses the secondary camera as a monochrome sensor. LG uses wide angle, Samsung uses Optical Zoom, etc. If you have a phone that doesn’t make use of the second lens unless you’re engaged in a mode that activates it, then that lens doesn’t need to be the greatest quality or have the highest MP count
