Vivo to launch a true bezel-less smartphone with an in-display fingerprint and no notch
Vivo is finally going to launch the Vivo Apex smartphone on 12 June.
A dream come true for people who love bezel-less smartphones. Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 had lots of cool things on display but nothing was as exciting as Vivo Apex. The phone highlighted screen display, under glass unique fingerprint sensor, a pop-up selfie camera. The company announced that the phone will be officially launched on 12 June all around the world. Vivo showcases the phone by posting a new video ad of upcoming Fifa World Cup 2018.
Vivo Apex features unprecedented top and side bezels of 1.8mm–the thinnest, with a 4.3mm bottom bezel. The screen-to-body ratio will exceed 98% if the bottom bezel reaches 1.8mm, ultimately creating the truly bezel-less experience.
To simply put in, the Vivo Apex shown at Mobile World Congress 2018 has:
- 5.99-inch OLED panel
- Snapdragon 845
- USB Type-C connector
- 3.5 mm headphone jack
Vivo has taken the technology to a whole new level by featuring new engineering breakthroughs in camera, speaker, and sensor elements as well as rethinking the design structure of conventional smartphones. Vivo Apex is the first smartphone to solve the problems surrounding an all-display smartphone.
Transforming the entire bottom half of the OLED screen, users can touch anywhere on the bottom half of the screen to perform fingerprint recognition, enabling a more flexible and intuitive experience.
