The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has gotten a lot of attention for its X20 Plus UD phone. It has an in-display fingerprint scanner made by Synaptics, and it is the world’s first smartphone to have it. However, there has been a lot of speculation surrounding the durability of the sensor, and whether it will work with screen protectors. While we don’t have a conclusive answer to the latter yet, hence Zack from JerryRigEverything on YouTube decided to test whether the sensor survives scratches.
The focus of the video was to see whether the under-display fingerprint scanner survives despite getting scratched, as it’s likely to, over time. As you can see the sensors seem to be working fine even after some abrasions.
The rest of the device is just as impressive as the sensor itself. Vivo has a built a solid device. It passed the channel’s durability test where he tried bending the phone, burning the display, etc.
That being said, we’ll definitely see more teardowns and tests on this particular smartphone in coming days. So, we’ll be one the lookout for those and update with necessary info.
