Think foldable phones are the ultimate in smartphone technology? Vivo seems to have something else in mind! In a press conference in Beijing today, Vivo announced the launch of the brand-new APEX 2019 concept smartphone. Vivo’s first 5G smartphone offers an ultra-simple and uniquely recognizable design with Curved-Surface Waterdrop Glass. Packed with cutting-edge technologies and features, APEX 2019 showcases a brand-new minimalist concept that takes smartphone design to a whole new level.
“With the goal of enhanced usability and simplicity at the core, APEX 2019 offers consumers a glimpse into the future of smartphone design and development. The Super Unibody design and Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology, among several other breakthrough features, make APEX 2019 a truly exceptional smartphone that demonstrates Vivo’s continuous exploration and the pursuit of exceptional innovation for consumers,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo.
Super Slick Smartphone Design
APEX 2019 introduces a sleek and truly FullViewTM design that renders the bezel extinct. The device successfully delivers an unconventional smartphone experience by completely removing physical buttons. Instead, Vivo’s latest phone adopts Touch Sense technology and brings together capacitive touch as well as pressure-sensing. With carefully designed programming logic and software, the pressure sensors can tell if a user is pressing the frame and the capacitive touch can determine its position, providing extra-sensitive accuracy.
USB ports are replaced by a MagPort, a magnetic power connector which enables both charging and data transfer. This allows for a streamlined user experience, as well as making the body more compact. APEX 2019 also turns its display into a speaker by using Body SoundCasting technology, transforming the entire APEX 2019 display into a speaker via the screen vibration function, avoiding the need for a speaker grill.
Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning
APEX 2019 comes equipped with Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology, with a sensor covering almost the entire display. This enables users to touch almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device seamlessly, supported by Vivo’s cutting-edge Fingerprint Light function – when the user’s finger is close to the display, the pixels around the touch point will automatically light up as an additional light source to help obtain a clear fingerprint image.
A larger sensor also enables more features to bolster security for using apps. When users wake their device from an inactive screen and press on the corresponding app icon to scan their finger, they can unlock and gain direct access to the app so that the experience is faster and more efficient than before.
5G Smartphone Captures Every Important Moment
Vivo’s first 5G smartphone runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform with a super-large memory of 12GB + 256GB, and is equipped with Jovi AI Assistant, along with many other smart functions. APEX 2019’s 5G mobile network capability enables an enhanced experience for video viewing, cloud gaming and a variety of other user scenarios.
APEX 2019 has also solved the challenge of limited motherboard space. With a Duplex PCB Design, APEX 2019 which has increased the available space by 20% to minimize the overall stacking space. This is Vivo’s solution to free up space for the 5G modules, making the phone a true unibody 5G phone.
