Vivo Reveals APEX™ FullView™ Concept Smartphone

  • This phone of the future has a pop up selfie camera and half-screen fingerprint scanner

In the war against bezels, the APEX manages to minimize top and side screen borders to an "unprecedented" 1.8mm, now retaining a 4.3mm chin which it also wants to eventually shrink to 1.8mm for an overall screen-to-body ratio of more than 98 percent.

The Apex introduces an 8-megapixel "elevating" front camera to avoid taking up space on the front of the phone.

USTA mostly liable for Bouchard fall: jury
Kaminsky responded that though Bouchard fell in the rankings she didn't lose any of her lucrative off-court endorsement deals. This means the governing body will only have to pay three quarters of the sum the court decides it owes Bouchard in damages.

However, Vivo unveiled the X20 Plus model at CES 2018 in January which incorporated the world's first in-display fingerprint sensor.

What Vivo did to the APEX is make the bottom half of the OLED screen. Vivo seeks to address with new Screen Sound Casting Technology available on APEX which allows the display to function like a speaker and an earpiece. From breakthroughs in audio, photography to In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, Vivo has remained committed to realizing our vision for future smartphones. It argues that it should save on power, reduce sound leakage and offer a superior audio experience. At MWC 2018, the company one-upped itself and took the concept to the next level.

Annihilation director Alex Garland criticised for alleged white-washing
In case you missed it, while Portman was presenting the Best Director category, she said, "And here are the all-male nominees". Garland's talents are on full display in an adaptation of the first book in Jeff VanderMeer's " Southern Reach " trilogy.

The in-display scanner doesn't seem to be as fast as the conventional fingerprint sensor, but it's safe to assume that it will improve once the technology advances. Which is to say, that you can place your finger anywhere on the broad, sensitive area to unlock the phone. If you thought the OPPO N1's swiveling camera was weird, it has nothing on the Vivo APEX. The APEX concept phone has an 8MP sensor up front. It could be the solution to manufacturers - such as Apple and Samsung - wanting to completely remove bezels on smartphones. This phone shows how a true bezel-less phone looks.

The selfie camera - Instead of a fixed camera on the screen, the Apex will have a retractable front-facing camera that can automatically slide in and out of the chassis. It often took multiple tries to unlock the phone with a finger in the sweet zone, even though it's supposed to work no matter which way your finger is oriented.

National Football League player arrested after threatening image naming Richie Incognito
A patrol vehicle is seen at Harvard-Westlake's Studio City campus after classes were canceled on February 23, 2018 . Frank Albarran told the Los Angeles Daily News he does not believe the threat to the school was "credible".

However, the company hasn't revealed the exact tech specifications, pricing, or the availability of the Vivo APEX. Well, the phone entire OLED panel actually acts as an earpiece, and Vivo calls this feature "Screen Soundcasting". It is the very same phone which appeared a few days ago with almost full-screen design without any bezels either on top or bottom. Right now, all we can do is wait and see if this will become an official phone or Vivo is still going back to the drawing board with this concept. This could very well be a demo just like that of the X20 Plus UD on the CES past year.
