Today, at an event in Hong Kong, Vivo showed off its new Apex 2019 phone concept, which has no port, 5G connectivity and a fingerprint sensor that covers almost the entire screen. The device was originally intended to be shown at the Mobile World Congress this year, but its public debut ended up being delayed. (That’s at least something better than Meizu’s effort on a phone without a port, which turned out to be a publicity stunt).
The body of Apex 2019 is formed by a single piece of glass, something in which I live stress was extremely difficult to achieve. It uses a combination of capacitive and pressure sensors to simulate the volume and the buttons of rest, there is a magnetic connector patented for the load and the transfer of data, and the screen vibrates instead of a loudspeaker. And then there’s that fingerprint scanner, which can be used with several fingers placed almost anywhere on the front of the phone.
I can say that in my brief test so far, all these features have worked quite well, and the unibody design of the phone is really beautiful. Although it still would not be an attractive consumer device, Vivo solves this with the designation of “concept”. The Apex 2019 will never go on sale.
