Vivo has successfully released the X series smartphones in China with a very unique and revolutionary, Under Display Fingerprint Sensor technology. Vivo is the first brand that launched the under display fingerprint feature for mobile phones and now its also about to become the first mobile phone brand in India to launch the in-display fingerprint feature.
Vivo has been teasing about the X series launch on the company’s official social media pages, now the company has started rolling out the media invite for X21 launch event happening on May 29th in Delhi.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has already launched X21 in China back in March this year. Vivo X21 is the second Vivo phone to have under display fingerprint sensor, the predecessor of Vivo X21 UD was Vivo X20 Plus UD which also had fingerprint sensor under its display.
These days, every smartphone brand is trying to cut the bezels on their new phones, to reduce the bezels, all brands have started putting the fingerprint sensor at the rear side of the phone but the front is always the most prefered place for a fingerprint sensor. Vivo has solved this issue and confusion by putting the sensor under the display, now you can have a wider and more convenient place to unlock your phone using the fingerprint.
