The concept of Apex 2020 from Vivo has been teased long enough by the company and it has finally been revealed on the company’s website. It brings with it a lot of futuristic ideas and improvements to the table and can set some trends.
Vivo Apex 2020 Design and Display
Apex is mostly made of glass and there are no ports anywhere on the phone. The As can be seen from the renders
The screen completely wraps on the sides of the phone just like the curved screens on Samsung phones but on steroids.
The curve provides what Vivo calls a 120-degree display. Instead of the usual buttons, Vivo opted for virtual pressure sensitive buttons on the sides for the volume rocker and power button.
Vivo Apex 2020 Price With greater features and style
Since the front of the phone is all display there is no room for the earpiece. Vivo solved the problem with Sound Casting technology
Which vibrates part of the display to create sound. We’ve seen this kind of implementation on other phones as well (LG G8) and for the most part, it works well.
Vivo Apex 2020 Internals and Storage
Nothing unusual happens to the inner tops. As you’d expect from the flagship concept The Apex comes with brutal specifications in the form of a qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
In addition to the display, the camera is the main focus of Apex. At the back there is one 48MP sensor that is impressive about the installation is optical image stabilisation (OIS).
Vivo has decided to go for a “micro-pyramid” structure that is built into the camera module that provides gimbal level photo and video stabilization. Vivo claims that with this installation
Apex can offer 200% better image stabilization compared to the conventional OIS available on the market.
This stability really improves the performance of the Apex camera, at least on paper. Night shots can be much better even if portable.
Because the phone will be able to increase shutter speed for more light to reach the sensor and to achieve a clearer photo.
The front-facing camera is also a first for the industry, with the Vivo going for a underneath camera display. Under the display is a 16MP sensor.
According to Vivo the panel has an innovative pixel design that allows the area above the camera to allow 6-times more light to pass.
Putting the camera under the display should still have an impact on the quality, so the camera uses 4-in-1 super pixel technology in order to increase the clarity and sharpness of the photo.
How well it works is practically that remains to be seen.
Battery and (Super) Fast Charging
One of the most highly rumored features of Apex was the fact that it would support 60W charging. But since the device has no ports it only supports wireless charging at 60 w.
Surprisingly, according to data on the Vivo website with such a fast charging speed the 2000 mAh battery can be fully charged in just under 20 minutes. Vivo did not mention any other battery parts.
As innovative as Apex sounds, it’s easy to forget that it’s still a concept phone.
The various technologies demonstrated at the top can find their way on to other phones from the company but so far there is no word on whether the Vivo Apex will go into production or not.
The latest Apex concept that Vivo has shown doesn’t go into production either, so it’s very unlikely it could be.
