Chinese smartphone brand Vivo launched the Vivo X20 Plus UD back in January this year. The X20 Plus UD is the world’s first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner. However, later in March, the company launched the Vivo X21 UD which too comes with in-display fingerprint scanner. Until now, the X21 UD was only available in China, but now, it has been launched for global markets as well.
