Vivo is sending out hold-the-date invitations for what looks to be the production version of the Apex concept phone that wowed the world back in February. The Apex, as you might recall, featured three impressive technologies: a pop-up front-facing camera, an edge-to-edge display with a claimed “world’s best” screen-to-body ratio, and an in-display fingerprint sensor that worked anywhere in the lower half of the display. The question is, how much of that gee-whiz tech will make it into the production device that will be announced in Shanghai on June 12th?
Vivo’s invite hedges a bit by saying it “continues Vivo’s vision with Apex FullView Concept Smartphone.” But we’re also teased with a glimpse of what seems to be the production device in the company’s first ad promoting Vivo as the official smartphone of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. we see that big, glorious display that’s both notch-free and bezel-less, as well as the front-facing selfie camera that rises from the handset for a video call. That leaves only the half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology from the Apex concept in doubt. But don’t worry, Vivo has another more limited in-display fingerprint solution that’s already shipping.
The race is on for the first true all-display phone. Yeah, Apple pitches the iPhone X as “all screen,” but its notch suggests otherwise. So far we’ve got that sliding Doogee prototype in the running along with Lenovo’s Z5. The Z5, though, with a claimed screen-to-body ratio of 95 percent looks set for a June launch, according to the company’s chatty VP. But will it arrive before or after the 12th? That’s what we want to know…
A Press Release highlights the concept in a bit more detail;
“In keeping with the promise to continuously support user habits,” the company notes, “Apex also features an 8MP Elevating Front Camera. The camera seamlessly rises in 0.8 seconds when it is required and retracts after use. Together with the hidden proximity sensor and ambient light sensor, this eliminates the space taken up by conventional front cameras, while offering the same selfie experience to users.”
How To Compare Phones And Check Prices Before Buying
Hello guys, I’ve been a bit slow in updating this part of the blog and it’s because I’ve been working really hard to add a How To Compare Phones And Check Prices feature.
How To Compare Phones
I just added a price and spec comparison feature to this blog. You can compare phone specs and prices then buy it if there’s a link to the store available in the option. –
I normally go to e-commerce stores and pick out the lowest prices so you get the best value for your money. Regular blog post updates would resume immediately.
Thanks for being an amazing reader.
