The fruit company, watch out!

Vivo X21 sports a 6.28-inch FHD+ (2280x1080px) Super AMOLED display. There is a notch to the top and a slightly thick chin to the bottom. But the most beautiful part of this display is that a in-display fingerprint reader resides there. The exact location of the sensor is little above the chin. What an amazing peace of technology! We thought that the “fruit” company would come up with this technology but Vivo proved us wrong.
