One of the most unusual novelties of the upcoming summer may have “appeared” on the web in the photo. Users are waiting for innovation from the upcoming smartphones and probably soon the public will be shown a mobile device with full-screen design without a dash in the display. The fingerprint scanner of this smart phone will be located under its screen.
The Chinese smartphone vendor Vivo first showed the innovative design of the Vivo Apex device earlier this year, also at MWC. Recent reports indicated that work on a smart phone is close to the final production stage and the release of an unusual device is expected in early June 2018. An image appeared on the web that is considered to be a real photograph of the device in question, which was reviewed by Arther M. in an illustrated article on the pages of the androidhits.com resource.
The new Vivo Apex image is shown as a full-screen smartphone with a very thin frame. The front camera is pulled out from above, as it was supposed earlier. There is no recess or any other additional space for sensors on the front panel. Even the speaker for voice communication is located under the screen of the smartphone.
It is especially interesting that half of the screen of the novelty recognizes fingerprints. Such a technical solution has not yet found application in any other flagship smartphone.
This “leak” also indicates the expected technical characteristics of the Vivo Apex. The smartphone, which is expected to officially debut, as already mentioned earlier, on June 12, 2018, will be based on the flagship chipset Snapdragon 845, which will be combined in a novelty with 8 gigabytes of RAM. The operating system of the device will be Android 8.1.0 Oreo with the May (2018) security patch. The Funtouch OS 4.0 software shell will be located on top of the operating system.
Even more interestingly – it is additionally noted that the considered model of the smartphone will not seem to be “Apex”. It is still unknown what name the Vivo novelty will enter the market, but it is likely to differ from the intended one.
