Global smartphone brand Vivo is taking the game a notch higher, launching its first X-series model in the Philippines in June.
The Vivo X21, the company?s latest flagship smartphone, is introducing a world-first — Vivo?s In-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology. It replaces the traditional rear fingerprint sensor commonly found on many smartphones.
The In-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology was preceded by the Under-Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution unveiled during the Mobile World Congress in Shanghai in 2017 ? the first of its kind in the world.
Vivo has introduced many firsts in the past. It was the first to launch smartphone with a 24-megapixel selfie camera in V7 and V7+ and was also a pioneer in launching a 20MP dual front camera smartphone in V5Plus.
In February 2018, Vivo launched its APEX FullView Concept Smartphone, its ?ultimate iteration? for the future full-screen smartphone.
Aside from the nearly 100% screen-to-body ratio, the APEX features several innovative technologies including the Half-Screen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology as well as Elevating Front Camera and Screen SoundCasting Technology.
