Smartphones are evolving at a rapid pace and we now have better processors, cameras, and construction materials being used at every price level. Recently, we have also seen a lot of innovation when it comes to device security. Apple introduced FaceID last year with the iPhone X (Review) which replaced a fingerprint sensor with a TrueDepth camera. FaceID involves an infrared camera and a flood illuminator to accurately scan multiple points on the user's face in order to authenticate him or her. Another change that helps with smartphone design is the use of in-display fingerprint sensors. Vivo has already showcased this on its X20 Plus UD, as well as a concept phone called the Vivo Apex.

  • Price expensive for. This speciation
    Rohan (May 27, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    As always price is doubled. Still vivo is doing some good. Work lately.. They need to bring the price tag down and focus on. Good. Specifications rather spending bucks. On filmstars n advertising. SD660 and 12+5+12 camera is worth 20k.(still expensive but in display fingerprint is there)

  • Worst phone at this price...
    Kumar Shubham (Jun 5, 2018) on Gadgets 360
    At a price of Rs. 35000 you will get much better phones like one plus 6 and galaxy s8 or s7 edge. Vivo is just spending money on filmstars and thrn charging us. Only in display fp scanner wont do for this high price. Camera is not good for this price. Dont buy this product. Its just a crap piece and waste of money.
