The Vivo Apex All-Screen Smartphone

The Vivo Apex All-Screen Smartphone

Vivo, a Chinese maker of smartphones, recently unveiled the Vivo Apex smartphone idea. This happened at the MWC 2018, and one of the first things noted about the smartphone was the fact that it is nearly bezelless, and it looks stunning.

The concept of the Vivo Apex FullView actually has the highest smartphone screen-to-body ratio in the world, as well as a half-screen in-display fingerprint scanner that is huge. The bezels on the top and sides of the Vivo Apex measure 1.8 mm while the bottom bezel is 4.3 mm. There is thankfulness among many that there is no notch, as more and more future smartphones will be leaving off. The iPhone X comes equipped with a notch, but the reason is literally unknown, as is the fact that so many smartphone makers are compromising and copying as well.

If the bottom bezel of the Vivo Apex reaches a size of 1.8 mm, that will create a screen-to-body ration of 98%. If this happens, users will actually get to experience the truly bezelless feel. However, in order for this to happen, Vivo will still have to lose 2.5 mm from that bottom bezel.

With thanks primarily directed towards the flexible OLED, microchips will be able to be mounted right into the circuit board for this truly unique screen-to-body ration. But how can the Apex take selfies without a notch? Like something from a James Bond movie, the camera actually comes out of the top. It rises seamless in .8 seconds when accessed, and then retracts after it is used. It helps to eliminate space in that it is hidden, as is the ambient light sensor, the proximity sensor so it does not take up nearly the space that a conventional front camera takes up. On the same token, users will still get a great selfie experience.

Much like Sony OLED TV’s, Vivo Apex removes the speakers and actually utilizes the screen as a speaker. Vibrations are sent through the display, using Screen SoundCasting Technology so there is no need for old-fashioned speakers.

The Vivo Apex is actually a real smartphone, and the concept has already been shown to work, via certain videos that have already been released.

There has been some talk of “smartphone fatigue” in which users are seeing that most smartphones are very much like, and no surprisingly new features are coming available.
