"With the goal of greater usability and simplicity at the core, APEX 2019 gives consumers a glimpse into the future of smartphone design and development. The Super Unibody design and Full-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology, among other innovative features, make the APEX 2019 a truly exceptional smartphone that demonstrates Vivo's continued exploration and pursuit of exceptional innovations for consumers, "said Spark Ni, president of Vivo.
Design Super Unibody
The device features the FullView design which reduces the panel to almost nonexistent. The device offers an unconventional smartphone experience by completely removing the physical buttons and instead adopting Touch Sense technology that brings together the capacitive touch and pressure sensor. With this, the pressure sensors can tell if a user is pressing the frame firmly and the capacitive touch can determine their position, providing extra-sensitive accuracy.
The USB ports are replaced with
It also transforms your monitor into a speaker using Body SoundCasting technology, turning the screen into a speaker via the screen's vibration function, avoiding the need for a speaker grille.
Full-screen fingerprint scanning
The phone comes equipped with full-screen fingerprint scanning technology, with a sensor covering almost the entire screen. This allows users to play almost anywhere on the screen to unlock the device, with support for Vivo's Fingerprint Light function. This function works when the user's finger is next to the monitor, the pixels around the touch point will automatically light up as an additional light source to help get a clear fingerprint image.
A larger sensor also allows more features to increase the security of application usage. When users activate the device on an idle screen and press the corresponding application icon to scan their finger, they can unlock and gain direct access to the application.
5G Smartphone for multiple user scenarios
The device runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 platform with a super large 12 GB memory +
It also solved the limited-space challenge of the motherboard using a Duplex PCB Design that increased the available space by 20% to minimize the total stacking space. This is Vivo's solution to free up space for the 5G modules by making the phone a full 5G unibody phone.
Vivo is leading the standardization of 5G technology, strengthened by a fusion of technologies including artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), augmented reality and virtual reality. In the future, the deep integration of 5G and AI will become critical to the development of the era of the 5G smartphone. Vivo claims that it will continue to explore the future of the smartphone as part of its commitment to provide users with
The APEX 2019 will be presented at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona in late February and visitors to the event will have the opportunity to enjoy a first-hand view.
