Remember the APEX 2019? the phone with 5G, a full screen display, no buttons, no front camera, and no ports? well, Vivo held an event yesterday, and showcased the device. The phone adopts a minimalist, yet sophisticated design. Bezel-less, but packs a ton of innovations that makes it stand out from other smartphones in the market. There are no physical buttons on this phone. Instead, the company uses Touch Sense Technology for pressure-sensing as well as capacitive touch. Pressure sensors are able to intelligently tell when a user is pressing the frame, while capacitive touch detects its position, providing extra-sensitive accuracy. The phone doesn’t have a charging port, which is replaced by a magnetic connector called MagPort, which can be used for both charging and data transfer. Body SoundCasting Technology transforms the  entire display to a speaker using screen vibration, eliminating the need for a speaker grill, and adding to…

Its first ever 5G smartphone, the APEX 2019 features a uniquely recognizable design that utilizes a curved-surface waterdrop glass, and no openings.

Using carefully designed programming logic and software, the sensors can tell whether it’s the frame of the phone that’s being pressed, while capacitive touch determines position, resulting to extra-sensitive accuracy. The USB port is replaced by a MagPort, a magnetic power connector for both charging and data transfer. This allows the body to be more compact, while also providing a…

Just a few days ago, we posted an article regarding a teaser of Vivo’s next smartphone, set to be unveiled on January 24. There wasn’t a lot of info available, except that it’s going to be that waterdrop phone. Now, the company has officially revealed that it will be the APEX 2019. So what exactly can we expect from Vivo’s new APEX? well, perhaps a good guess would be a full-screen display with no notch. As to how close to a true full screen it is, we’ll have to find out. Chances are, it’ll also be using the periscope design for the front camera, which was present on the first APEX. It’ll also most likely have an in-display fingerprint sensor, which hopefully has been already refined to work outside that small area of the screen, so you can basically unlock the phone by tapping anywhere on the display.
