Just last month, Lenovo had started teasing their very own all-screen smartphone that’s called the Lenovo Z5. A lot of people got excited when Lenovo released teasers of the phone that doesn’t come with a notch. Turns out, the Z5 was just another typical “FullView” smartphone with a notch and everyone was fooled, us included.
If you’re still searching for a truly all-screen experience, vivo probably has the device you’ve been looking for. They have announced the vivo NEX and this is probably the closest thing to an all-screen bezel-less smartphone.
The X21 has finally arrived in Malaysia. This is vivo’s premium selfie-centric smartphone lets you unlock the device by touching the screen.
UPDATE: The vivo X21 is now official in Malaysia. It’s priced at RM2,299.
Want a “FullView” smartphone that lets you lock naturally with your finger? The vivo X21 is coming to Malaysia very soon and it’s vivo’s new top of the line device that comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
After showcasing its capabilities at CES 2018, vivo has finally revealed a commercial device with an in-display fingerprint sensor. This is the world’s smartphone that allows you to unlock with your fingerprint on the display itself.
With newer smartphones being introduced with “FullView” displays, most manufacturers are still trying to find an ideal place for a fingerprint sensor. Samsung had gone with a rear-mounted unit while Apple has ditched it completely on the iPhone X. Interestingly, Huawei had managed to squeeze one on the bottom chin of its Huawei Mate 10 and honor View10.
It’s no secret that Chinese smartphone maker, vivo, wants to be the first to embed a fingerprint sensor on the screen itself. Last year they had a showcase using Qualcomm’s Sense ID technology and now they want to convince the world that they are one step closer in introducing one on a phone that you can actually buy.
