Vivo on Thursday released a new smartphone with a fascinating new feature ahead of the competition: In-display fingerprint scanning technology.
Unlike other fingerprint-scanning apps and devices, Vivo has built it right into the bottom of the screen and it integrates biometric authentication into the display itself. It unlocks the phone with a press from the user’s registered thumbprint without the need for a third-party security app that is sure to take up considerable storage.
Other than the new built-in finger scanner, the Vivo X21 offers upgraded facial recognition technology with “Face Access” which scans users’ facial features for an enhanced two-way security access.
Vivo’s new flagship is equipped with a 6.28-inch 19.9 AMOLED Display. With a super slim notch and 1.66mm side bezels, it achieves a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio for wider viewing. Armored with Gorilla Glass 3 that offers sufficient protection and durability from bumps and falls. It has a 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup at the rear, and a 12MP front camera equipped with fast-focusing technology and AI scene recognition features.
A Qualcomm Snapdragon SDM 660 AIE Octa-core processor powers the X21. It has 6GB of RAM, 128GB storage capacity, and 3200 mAh battery. It comes with the Funtouch OS 4.0, a mobile operating system based on Android 8.1
The Vivo X21 is available in the Philippines today Friday, June 22 at a retail price of P29,999.

Vivo has been the industry pioneer of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology from showcasing its first prototype demonstration to successful mass production. To ensure user expectations for this technology are being met, Vivo has tasked its teams to innovate and perfect this technology on the new X21 to provide a reliable and secure unlocking solution to all consumers.
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.
Other than In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, X21 also offers upgraded facial recognition technology with Face Access which scans users’ facial features for enhanced security.
