Vivo gears up for another smartphone release

Vivo is set to unveil a new smartphone. Based on the new visual that the company has teased in their official Facebook page, we deem that a new powerful smartphone with in-display fingerprint sensor is on the way.

The graphic is defined by a spiral galaxy with the in-display fingerprint sensor overlayed on top with words saying "Something out of this world is brewing." The Vivo page also highlights that the handset will be arriving soon with the #GoBeyond hashtag.


Vivo has released the powerful X21 last June which debuts its breakthrough in the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. This replaces the rear fingerprint sensor to achieve a sleek and unified design and offer an immersive smartphone experience. This is how it works.

How does it work? When a user finger touches the screen for unlocking, the Vivo X21’s Super AMOLED display emits light to illuminate the fingerprint. The optical fingerprint sensor below the OLED display captures the light reflected by the fingerprint. Based on the reflected light from the unique ridges on the fingerprint, the sensor processes the optical signals to deliver crisp and sharp fingerprint images for matching. Its unlocking speed is only 0.6 second.

Vivo unveiled the industry’s first Vivo Under-Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017. But not long after, the global smartphone brand showcased a ready-to-produce smartphone with the world’s first In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in Las Vegas, United States.

Going back to the next big smartphone announcement. What do you think Vivo would come up to?
