Vivo Apex 2019 announced with Snapdragon 855, 12GB RAM, full-screen fingerprint

Marion JacobsJan 25, 2019

As per previous leaks, the Vivo Apex 2019 will reportedly pack a liquid-metal chassis with rounded corners and curved back. Then we have to wait half a decade for Apple to swoop in and act like it thought of this idea all by itself, and the trend will reinvigorate.

The absence of ports makes way for the Touch Sense technology for easy use, and the Magport allows for the transfer of data as well as charging. Vivo's Apex 2018 smartphone eventually turned into Vivo Nex to be sold commercially and we could see that happening with Apex 2019 as well (fingers crossed). There are either notches or punch-hole displays that disrupt the continuity of aesthetically-pleasing phone design, but Vivo appears to have cracked the formula for the most attractive design in its upcoming Apex 2019 smartphone. In place of the physical buttons are pressure-sensitive capacitive ones, which provide haptic feedback via a "high-definition" linear motor. Vivo will be officially taking the curtains off its Apex 2019 smartphone at an event in China on January 24, bringing to us the first official look at what is already labelled the most attractive phone ever.

The "Taxi Driver" writer was awarded his first-ever nomination for his work on the religious drama starring Ethan Hawke. Joel Edgerton also missed out on Best Director for Boy Erased.

For starters the Apex 2019 has a port, of sorts.

The new Vivo Apex 2019 was announced in Beijing this evening and it has some awesome innovations and some spectacular specs which will hopefully arrive in a production Nex phone later this year. "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 pursuit of exceptional innovation for consumers", said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo. It's also eSIM-only, and there's no front camera. There's also support for two-finger unlocking, thereby beefing up the security. The magnetic nature of the pins means that you "don't need to look of feel for the port to plug the cable in". There are virtually no bezels at the front, and Vivo got rid of the front camera altogether. Vivo, last year gained recognition for its innovative pop-up selfie camera and this year's APEX 2019 handset may utilise the same mechanism. Vivo says it used a duplex PCB design to free up space for the 5G modules. At this stage not all the specs are known so stay tuned for them and as for the pricing and availability that is yet to be announced as well.
