The Vivo Apex 2019 is the company’s first 5G (Qualcomm X50 5G modem) smartphone and boasts a “Super Unibody” curved glass design with no visible headphone jack, USB-C port, or buttons. You charge the mobile phone via a rear-mounted magnetic connector that can also be used for data transfer. Other features include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 256GB of internal storage, 12GB of RAM, and a dual rear camera setup. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability, but expect it to make an appearance at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. Read more for a hands-on video and additional information.
“One returning Apex feature is the expanded in-display fingerprint sensor, which lets you press on a larger area of the screen to unlock the phone. This time around Vivo calls the tech “full-display fingerprint scanning” and claims it covers “almost the entire display,” though they called the last Apex’s scanner “half-display” when it was really about a third, so we’ll see how this works out in practice,” reports The Verge.
