Last year Vivo announced that they would be launching a smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor, something that both Apple and Samsung were rumored to have attempting/are attempting for their phones, and just today the company announced the phone in question in the form of the Vivo X20 Plus UD.

For the most part the handset is rather standard in terms of specs, which is decent, but the key feature is obviously is in-display fingerprint sensor. However before you get too excited and go on a crazy accessory-buying spree, it should be noted that not all screen protectors will work with the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Vivo did mention that only screen protectors of a certain thickness will work with the sensor, which means that if you were looking for a screen protector that might be thicker, like the tempered glass variety, then there is a chance it might not work (we haven’t tested it out yet, so this is just speculation on our part).

However Vivo will supply users with a screen protector that does work, although this also seems to hint that replacements will most likely have to be done through Vivo directly, at least if you want the peace of mind that it is guaranteed to work. That being said, the company did show off their fingerprint sensor at CES earlier this month. Based on our hands-on, it works pretty much as advertised, although it does feel ever so slightly slower than traditional sensors.
