What's Vivo's next cell phone

Smartphone from a single source: Vivo Apex 2019

The Vivo Apex 2019 was recently presented as a concept smartphone. With this mobile device, the Chinese manufacturer shows how it imagines the future of mobile devices. Is doing without buttons and sockets the next trend after the rimless design? In any case, the Apex 2019 only has a single magnetic port on the back. The full-screen fingerprint sensor is another special feature. There is modern hardware to match the futuristic design, namely the Snapdragon 855 with 5G modem and up to 512 GB of flash memory.

Vivo is again reaching into the design bag of tricks

Unusually spartan: Vivo Apex 2019
Vivo The Mobile World Congress 2019 is approaching - and the next Apex generation will be guests. Vivo has a successor to last year's concept smartphone in its luggage. The recently introduced Apex 2019 phone is intentionally spartan. Away with the volume, the on / off switch, the SIM and memory card slot, the USB port, the jack socket and the loudspeaker. On the outside, the Apex 2019 consists almost entirely of a display and a glass housing, only a magnetic connection on the back breaks the all-in-one-piece flair. Instead of buttons, there is a pressure-sensitive frame for volume control and switching the product on / off. The display not only contains a fingerprint sensor that extends over the entire surface, but also a piezoelectric module for sound reproduction. The built-in eSIM eliminates the need for a SIM card slot.

The magnetic pins are the only cable connection option
Vivo Although there is no microSD slot, very few users would miss it with up to 512 GB of flash memory. The working memory of the concept is also generous, up to 12 GB of RAM are included. The Vivo Apex 2019 is powered by the fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset (Octa-Core, up to 2.84 GHz clock). A 5G modem is also not missing from this trend-setting mobile device. Camera fans will find a dual unit with 12 + 13 megapixels at the back, there doesn't seem to be a selfie snapshot, which could be due to the prototype status. Based on the Vivo Apex, the Vivo Nex S emerged as a commercial smartphone, we are curious to see whether the Apex 2019 will also reach the mass market in a modified form. (via engadget)
