Vivo Teases a Concept Smartphone’s Launch With Zero Bezels on the Front

Smartphone manufacturer Vivo officially announced that it will be launching a full-screen concept phone named APEX. The official video and poster show the render of the Vivo APEX. The image shows the phone comes without any bezels on top and bottom and as well on sides. Thus it is actually the only full-screen handset in the world. The slogan of the poster too teases, “Unlock the Future”. The slogan simply means Vivo will be launching the truly border-less screen and will be using the in-display fingerprint scanner. Earlier this year, the Chinese company introduced the Vivo X20 Plus UD, the world’s first in-display fingerprint identification.

The Chinese phone maker may even bring far advanced fingerprint sensor in this phone. A mysterious Vivo phone leaked earlier in spy photos showed an app icon named “Half Screen”. Reports indicate this could mean Vivo has gone a step further with fingerprint identification tech which instead of using a specific are for scanning purposes, would allow half of the display to be used for the purpose.

However, this is not the only leak of the concept phone. A few weeks earlier a Vivo phone with an extremely high screen to body ratio was earlier spotted on Chinese microblogging site Weibo.

The alleged device had nothing but screen on the front with extremely thin bezels all around. There’s no top bezel or bottom bezel to house the sensors such as an earpiece, front camera, fingerprint scanner etc. Also, the device was alleged to bring about 95 percent screen to body ratio.

Similar to APEX concept phone, the alleged device had rounded corners, and the phone is clearly seen running Vivo’s Funtouch OS on top of Android. The device is also seen as sporting the elongated 18:9 aspect ratio screen.

Interestingly, reports then questioned the missing selfie shooter. However, others indicated that the handset could ship with a flip-up camera, which will be utilised as both the phone primary camera and selfie shooter.

Still, there’s no concrete confirmation whether both are one and same phone. Also there information pertaining to the features and specifications of the upcoming smartphone at this time. Stay tuned for more updates which possibly will come at MWC 2018.
