After leaving us thoroughly impressed with its Vivo NEX and NEX Dual Display, the Chinese smartphone brand has again unveiled a futuristic-looking handset. Dubbed Vivo Apex 2019, the concept smartphone packs some serious technology and looks stunning. Here are ten things you must know about the Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone:
Comes without holes, buttons and ports
This seems to be the next big trend in the smartphone industry. The day before yesterday, Meizu announced its holeless smartphone named Zero, and just a day later, Vivo unveiled its Apex 2019 concept phone that does not have any holes, buttons or ports on its body. Although it’s just a concept right now, the company has given a fair idea about how it will work without these. Read on to find out.
The screen also doubles as a speaker
Vivo Apex 2019 sports a 6.39-inch AMOLED display that has the piezoelectric transducer technology. This technology enables the screen of the device to emit sound. This may be impressive, but it is not the key highlight of the display. Want to what that is? Read on…
Has full-display fingerprint scanning
Yes, you read that right. The display of Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone comes with full-display fingerprint scanning. This means that you can place your finger anywhere on the smartphone’s screen to unlock the device. This makes the fingerprint sensor of Vivo Apex 2019 the most-advanced in the smartphone industry.
Is powered by the most powerful processor in the world and has 5G support
Vivo Apex 2019 concept smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC, which is the latest and the most powerful processor available in the market. With this processor, the Vivo Apex 2019 gets support for 5G networks.
Packs a massive RAM
Another factor that makes the Vivo Apex 2019 powerful is that it packs 12GB of RAM. The smartphone will be available in 256GB and 512GB storage options.
Here’s how the charging works
Vivo Apex 2019 comes with MagPort, a magnetic connector that has to be attached on the back panel of the smartphone for charging and data transfer. It works in a similar way to Moto Mods.
Cameras on the device
The smartphone comes with a dual rear camera setup with 12MP and 13MP sensors coupled with an LED flash. However, there is no word on the selfie camera of the smartphone and neither is it visible in pictures. So we will have to wait till company reveals more about the Vivo Apex 2019.
How to switch it on?
Vivo Apex 2019 has a combination of capacitive touch and pressure-sensing on its side edge. These replace the physical power and volume rocker buttons that are used otherwise.
