During the exhibition MWC 2018, which is taking place these days in Barcelona, the public was presented with a smartphone Vivo Apex, but not quite as we would like. The manufacturer showed only a few teaser videos and talked about the features of the phone, and also allowed a limited number of journalists to personally hold the phone in their hands. Nevertheless, according to the Chinese company, the novelty is not yet ready for a public announcement, as engineers are still working on it.
Today, on the third day of the MWC 2018 exhibition, the manufacturer announced the exact date of the presentation of the world’s first absolutely frameless smartphone with a scanner in the screen, which is Vivo Apex. According to official data, the phone will be presented to the public very soon – March 5, 2018, but it can be sold only in May-June. In addition to the integrated fingerprint module, the phone boasts a retractable front camera.
When you want to make a selfie or make a video call using the front camera of the phone, it automatically ejects from the case in 0.8 seconds. The fingerprint reader built into the phone does not work in one particular place, as in the Vivo X20 Plus UD, but on the entire bottom area of the mobile device, which makes it much easier and more convenient to use. The manufacturer assures that the display in his phone occupies more than 95% of the area on the front side – this is the record since 2018.
The smartphone Vivo Apex does not have a conversational speaker in its pure form since it did not have a place on the front of the mobile device. Together, it uses a technology called Screen SoundCasting, which causes the completely frameless phone screen to vibrate, thereby producing a sound. The user will not notice any vibrations, and they, in turn, do not harm the smartphone in any way.
The official public announcement of Vivo Apex will be held on March 5, that is, next week. Most likely, the novelty will be shown on the territory of China, and directly “out of the box” it will run on the operating system Android 8.0 Oreo. In addition to using the pop-up camera to solve the problem of front camera layout; in order to set aside more internal battery space, Vivo Apex incorporates DAC and 3-way amplifier Hi-Fi audio chip design.
