Vivo has just announced the third generation of its concept smartphone series – APEX 2020. APEX 2020 continues the legacy of the APEX series showcasing the best of the company’s innovations.


We’ve covered four of the features that was teased by the company, things like the 120-degree FullView Edgeless Display, Wireless Super FlashCharge 60W, Continuous Optical Zoom, and its gimbal-like camera.


Since then, we now know the rest of its features. These include a Super Unibody Design with no openings. Yes, you read that right, no openings. No buttons and holes for a front camera. How does one take front photos then? Well, the APEX 2020 has an in-display camera.

As far as the display goes, it has a 6.45-inch FullView Display. The APEX 2020 has 120-degree curves on both sides of the display. Physical buttons are replaced by a virtual pressure-sensing button to allow for such a wrap-around design.

The main rear camera is also gimbal-stabilized. A gimbal-like structure was embedded into the main camera which provides better optical stabilization.
