These days, it’s a contest of who’s smartphone can fit more screen into a slimmer and smaller body. As such, companies like Vivo have invested a lot of its resources in long-term research and development into improving the displays for its smartphones.
In fact, its notch and screen advancements are progressive, as shown by the V9 and X21’s 19:9 FullView Display. The notch has evolved every three months on average, reducing its footprint and giving users more room for content.
“Daring to pursue true perfection, while continuously creating the surprising.”
Vivo is the first global brand that was able to completely remove the notch – The NEX’s 6.59-inch Ultra FullView Display with a 19.3:9 aspect ratio delivers an astonishing 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, which was made possible by placing the sensors right under the display, and creating a pop-up mechanism for the front camera.
This year, the recently-launched V11 sports a new evolution of the notch, which is now even smaller. The new Halo Notch gives its 6.41-inch Super AMOLED FullView Display a screen-to-body ratio of 91.27%. To shrink its size, Vivo moved the earpiece to the top of the phone, leaving a smaller space that’s just enough for the camera.
The V11 also sports an in-display fingerprint scanner, new color options that’s a result of fusing blue and purple hues to create the radiance of a distant galaxy. It’s also geared for performance, with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage that’s truly fitting for a premium mid-range device. It currently retails for PhP19,999.
