Vivo APEX 2019 Concept Smartphone With Elevating Selfie Camera Unveiled To Be Showcased at MWC 2019

Vivo's first 5G smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform with a super-large memory of 12GB + 256GB, and is equipped with Jovi AI Assistant, along with many other smart functions. We've already seen a teaser suggesting the phone will have a notch-less and bezel-less display, but a new leak and render is now hinting the Vivo Apex 2019 will also do away with all ports and buttons too. Although there's no clear information, for now, we believe the selfie camera will sit on the top bezel of the phone much like the newly launched Meizu Zero. What made those stand out from other insane concept devices by companies not popular in the West though, was the fact that those two are stacked with technology that is bound to actually become mainstream in the near future.

In just a couple of days the next generation Vivo Apex concept phone is set to be unveiled at an event in China.

On the sides, Vivo took a note from HTC and added a capacitive touch and pressure-sensing volume rocker and power button. To recollect the Vivo APEX that launched previous year brought the pop-up selfie camera trend.

With the goal of enhanced usability and simplicity at the core, APEX 2019 offers consumers a glimpse into the future of smartphone design and development.




This futuristic phone has no selfie camera, reallyThe Apex 2019 has a unibody design wrapped in glass, with uninterrupted, sleek edges lining the frame of the phone.

Vivo will be exhibiting its prototype of the Apex 2019 at the MWC 2019 at the end of February where we will be able to find out more and carry out our personal hands-on.

What about the front camera? It's also a 5G phone, which means most people won't be getting very much out of it anyway. Though there's a dual-camera setup on the back. Vivo solves this problem by, well, allowing you to unlock the phone by pressing (almost) anywhere on the screen. Would you be interested in an all screen smartphone with no ports? Why waterdrop? The upcoming Vivo APEX 2019 will reportedly have no ports or lines of separation. At this stage not all the specs are known so stay tuned for them and as for the pricing and availability that is yet to be announced as well. Since the wireless charger is tiny (compared to what we're used to) and effortlessly snaps onto the phone via the magnetic connector on its back, you can still comfortably hold and use it while the battery is juicing.
