Vivo has been long rumored to be launching a new phone called, Xplay 7. The smartphone’s USP is said to be an under-display fingerprint sensing technology developed by Qualcomm. Now, the smartphone has been spotted on Weibo, which reveals what the upcoming smartphone will look like.
The first thing that the renders reveal is that the Vivo Xplay 7 will be available in black, gold and pink colors. The leaked images show the smartphone flaunting a bezel-less full-screen design. Leaks suggest that the smartphone could boast nearly 100 percent screen-to-body ratio. At the top of the display, you can spot two cutouts which can either be dual-selfie cameras or a selfie camera and a sensor. At the back, the Vivo Xplay 7 is seen featuring a dual-camera setup at the center of the device. Two antenna lines can be seen passing through the top and bottom of the device.
As mentioned, the under-display fingerprint scanner will be the upcoming smartphone’s USP. This technology was introduced by Vivo earlier this year at Mobile World Congress, Shanghai. This tech is based on Qualcomm’s ultrasonic fingerprint sensors. It eliminates the need for a dedicated fingerprint scanner to unlock or authenticate. The sensor is such that it is placed underneath the display. ALSO READ: Vivo under-display fingerprint scanner: Here’s how the technology works
