Vivo Apex – Introduction
Vivo is one of those smartphone companies, which has started growing rapidly and also giving tough competition to the smartphones giants like Samsung, Motorola, Asus, Xiaomi etc. This smartphone company was in head to head competition with all the other smartphone companies till they were working on traditional smartphones, but now Vivo itself has taken this competition to an all new level by revealing their futuristic concept smartphone Vivo Apex.
Vivo Apex is an upcoming smartphone of Vivo with technologies which we haven’t seen before. This might sound quite unusual but it is true that, this smartphone is a future of smartphones. Most of the smartphone giants like Samsung and Apple was working for introducing full screen smartphone, but Vivo has turned this concept into a reality.
Now let’s check this out, why Vivo Apex is the future of smartphones?
Vivo Apex – Display and Design
In the last month, Vivo launched their flagship smartphone Vivo V9, whose display and design was pretty much inspired by Apple iPhone X. For this reason, Vivo V9, became the product for trolling, but now, Vivo has shut all those critics by revealing Vivo Apex.
This will be the first smartphone of the world, which will come with 5.9 inches full display, means no notch and almost negligible bezels of 1.8mm at the top and sides and 4.3mm at the bottom. It will have 98% of screen to body ratio. This full view display has turned into reality, with the help of flexible OLED platform, which is directly embedded on its circuit board.
Not only in display section, but also in design section there are some major improvements. The placement of rear dual camera is same as Vivo V9, but now there is no traditional fingerprint reader. This time fingerprint reader has been built in-screen, yes, this will be the first smartphone of the world to be featured with half screen fingerprint sensor.
You will be able to increase the security level by using two thumbs simultaneously. This looks quite unimaginable but this is true that, fingerprint reader will be embedded on the screen and you can unlock your phone by just putting your thumb on it. There is a slight disadvantage of on-screen fingerprint sensor, that it isn’t that reliable as the dedicated fingerprint sensor is.
The power lock/unlock button is placed on the left side of the phone to access it with finger instead of thumb. Apart from that, other things like 3.5mm audio jack and Type-C connector is there at the bottom.
Vivo Apex – Camera and Processor
The front camera of Vivo Apex is the second most highlighted feature, because there is no visible front camera in this phone, it is hidden in the top most compartment. This will be the first time when any smartphone will use camera with lift.
To make this camera visible you have to switch on front camera button and this 8 MP camera will lift up from the top and after switching to the rear camera mode it would disappear in the top. Again any new thing comes with risk, and this camera also has a con that, now it has more chances of getting damaged, because this is a kind of a thing which can be detached easily.
The speculation of its rear is still under curtains, but we can predict it of 16 MP + 8 MP, with all kind of features like, autofocus, auto HDR, phase detection, electronic image stabilization, bokeh mode etc.
This phone will have Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, till now there is no official announcement regarding this but this processor is the most expected Chipset for Vivo Apex, because the amount of power this phone needs can only be supplied by Snapdragon 845. As this phone will be featured with Snapdragon 845, so it might have 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM.
