Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo showcased a prototype smartphone with a display-based fingerprint sensor at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 in January. The company quickly brought the device to market, releasing it as the Vivo X21 UD the very next month. However, Vivo only released the handset in its home country of China. A few months after the initial launch, Vivo is now bringing this handset to more markets across the globe.

Other than its display-based fingerprint sensor, the Vivo handset also has respectable specifications. It has a 6.28 inch 18:9 aspect ratio OLED display with 2160×1080 pixel resolution. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip under the hood. There is a 12 megapixel dual camera system at the back as well as a 3,905mAh battery.

Vivo has now decided to offer this handset in more markets across the globe. Singapore is the first country outside China where the company has started selling this handset through M1, StarHub, and other authorized retailers.

The company has priced it at SGD 799 in the country. It’s going to be available for sale in Singapore starting May 5th. We may very well see the Vivo X21 UD being sold in other markets in the near future but the company is yet to confirm which market is going to receive this handset next after Singapore.
