Vivo Launches In-Display Fingerprint Enabled Smartphone ‘Vivo X21’

Vivo has launched its new smartphone Vivo X21 in India at Rs.35,990/-. Vivo X21 replaces the rear fingerprint sensor with the latest In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. This allows the sleek and unified design of the smartphone to be preserved without the need for a rear fingerprint sensor. With mere a flick of the wrist and a press on the screen to unlock, this convenient and seamless process is intuitive for any user.


When the user’s finger touches the screen, the OLED display emits light to illuminate the finger. 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.

When fingerprint recognition is needed, such as when the screen is off and for unlocking apps, a fingerprint recognition icon will appear on the screen for users to press for immediate authentication. The fingerprint icon is otherwise invisible to ensure a seamless mobile experience.

The Vivo X21 features 12MP (24 million photographic units) front and rear cameras with Dual Pixel Sensors. The X21 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660AIE chip which can effectively utilize CPU resources for complex AI and neural computing. Its 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM increases the speed of launching, loading and switching even large and complex mobile games.
