It seems like Vivo has decided to launch smartphones that look more and more futuristic and pack some really cool features. First, we saw the Vivo NEX last year that came with a pop-up selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint scanner. Then we saw its successor Vivo NEX Dual Display that, as the name suggests, comes with two displays and no selfie camera as the second screen on the device’s back panel can be used while clicking selfies with the triple rear camera setup. We loved the design of both of these smartphones. And now, the Chinese smartphone brand has unveiled its Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone that has some really cool features.
To begin with, Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC clubbed with 12GB of RAM and is available in 256GB and 512GB storage options. Since it has the latest chipset by Qualcomm, the device has support for 5G and comes with a MagPort, which is a magnetic connector on the smartphone’s back panel that can be used for charging and data transfer.
Vivo Apex 2019 features a 6.39-inch AMOLED display that comes with the piezoelectric transducer to emit sound. So, much like Vivo NEX, the smartphone‘s screen doubles as a speaker too. It is worth noticing that no selfie camera is visible on the front panel of the newly unveil concept phone.
However, there is a key highlight we must mention: Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone has Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning. This means that you can touch anywhere on the smartphone’s display and it will unlock. We should mention that no other company has done this so far and this makes Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone’s fingerprint sensor the most advanced one yet.
The Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone has a combination of capacitive touch and pressure-sensing that replaces the physical power and volume rocker buttons placed on the side edges of the smartphone. The device sports a 12MP+13MP dual rear cameras coupled with an LED flash. As of now, there is no word on the selfie camera of the device, so we will have to wait until we find out more about it. We would also have to wait to know about the device’s IP rating and if it has support for wireless charging.
We should also mention that since this is a concept phone, certain changes may be made to it before it is launched commercially. We are looking forward to learning more about the Vivo Apex 2019 concept phone at the MWC 2019, that is scheduled to begin on February 25.
