Vivo unveils full-display fingerprint 'APEX 2019' concept phone

Vivo unveils full-display fingerprint 'APEX 2019' concept phone

5G, 12 gigs of RAM, and Snapdragon 855Aside from all the technological innovations that the Vivo Apex 2019 brings to the table, it is also a powerful phone (as if that's surprising). Besides the practically non-existent bezels, Vivo Apex 2019 also doesn't have a charging port, ear piece, speaker grills, or any other openings, seams, or any hard edges for that matter.

Much like the Meizu Zero, Vivo's new APEX will be relying on its screen - our money's on OLED - to act as a loudspeaker.


Earlier this year, Oppo and Vivo surprised us all when they unveiled some of the most unique smartphone designs to date. But it was in February 2018, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), that the company revealed its pop-up camera concept Apex device - which appeared as the NEX S a mere four months later! But Vivo has decided that it is time to take this technology to the next level, introducing the possibility of integrating it throughout the display of its brand new Apex 2019, the smartphone without buttons and without ports.

Under the hood, Vivo Apex 2019 concept smartphone is a beast. This year with the Vivo Apex 2019 the handset lacks a headphone jack, USB-C port and speaker and fingerprint reader, having integrated the last two into the screen. Vivo says it used a duplex PCB design to free up space for the 5G modules.


While there's no word on whether Vivo Apex 2019 would ever be commercially available, but don't lose hope.

The new Vivo Apex 2019 was announced in Beijing this evening and it has some wonderful innovations and some spectacular specs which will hopefully arrive in a production Nex phone later this year. It's also eSIM-only, and there's no front camera. The phone has 12MP + 13MP dual rear cameras but is front camera details are unknown at the moment. Naturally, this posed a bit of a problem, as you had to make sure that you were pressing on the right spot, which wasn't made any easier by the smooth surface of the screen. The company published a teaser for the phone on its social media platforms, in which the company revisited the progression of its elevating selfie camera. Why waterdrop? The upcoming Vivo APEX 2019 will reportedly have no ports or lines of separation. Let's wait and watch what the Vivo will offer in Apex 2019. 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.
