These days, there are more smartphones that continue to churn out impressive capabilities. In fact, some brands actually come close to beat even the other established smartphone brands. Among the smartphones that punch above its weight is the amazing Vivo V5 smartphone. Making its debut as the all-purpose selfie smartphone, this Vivo smartphone is going to take your selfie game to the next level.
Vivo made quite an impression at both CES and MWC 2018 with its cutting-edge in-display fingerprint scanner that will be incorporated in the Vivo Apex – the company’s concept phone that comes with amazing features that are like nothing you’ve ever seen in a smartphone. Here are some cutting-edge specifications and features of the Vivo Apex that could wow a lot of smartphone users.
The Vivo Apex’s most notable aspect is its almost completely bezel-less screen. It boasts a screen-to-body ratio of 98% which is something way beyond any other mobile phones on the market today. The bezels are barely noticeable around the sides and the chin since they are only 1.8mm and 4.3mm thick, respectively. What’s more, it has a full HD resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, providing an immersive viewing experience. With this immersive screen, the Vivo Apex is expected to be a wonderful device for multimedia and gaming.
Most mobile phones with a fingerprint sensor require you to touch just a single spot when unlocking, which can feel limiting at times. But with the Vivo Apex half screen sensor, your finger(s) isn’t limited to a single area. You can also use two of your fingerprints or different fingerprints at the same time, meaning you can use someone’s finger along with yours to unlock the phone. This could be highly beneficial when securing a banking app.
While the Vivo Apex lacks the usual components on its front panel, these features have been intentionally misplaced. The speaker, which Vivo calls Screen Soundcasting, is now incorporated into the device’s 6-inch display, meaning you’ll hear the sound coming through the screen or front panel clearly.
When it comes to calls, it offers realistic and natural audio quality. You can expect the voices to have depth and excellent sound, all thanks to the Screen Soundcasting tech that maximizes energy and minimizes leakage of sound. All in all, Vivo Apex’s unique positioning of its speaker is said to be a well-thought-out concept, as it won’t leave users in a state of dissatisfaction.
The proximity sensor has been placed below the display and the ambient light sensor is positioned to the top of the phone, so where is the front camera? It is now found under the top of the device and only comes out if you open the camera app and press the front cam button, and retracts back once you tap the front button again. This amazing feature comes out in just 0.8 seconds; and likewise, when it retracts back inside the device.
