First shown as a futuristic concept phone, the Vivo APEX is officially launching on June 12. The device avoids a display notch by incorporating a retractable selfie-camera that pops out of its chassis when required.

Vivo has announced that it will be launching the eagerly anticipated APEX FullView smartphone on June 15 in China. First unveiled as a concept phone at Mobile World Congress in February, the Chinese company received such a positive reception to the device that it decided it would bring it to market. When it arrives, it will have the highest display-to-body ratio of any smartphone on the market.

Unlike so-called “fullscreen” devices like the iPhone X or Essential Phone PH-1 (and the many knock-offs since), the Vivo APEX does not compromise the user experience with a notched display. Instead, it tucks away a front-facing camera within the chassis that pops out smoothly in 0.8 seconds. Vivo says it was able to achieve a 98% display-to-body ratio by using a flexible OLED panel, which allowed it to mount microchips directly to its flexible circuit board. It’s display also functions as a speaker, using Screen SoundCasting.

Like the Vivo X20 Plus UD, which pioneered under display fingerprint technology, the Vivo APEX allows users biometric authentication to take place by touching the screen, although the APEX has a wider “sweet spot.” It also features a new System in Package (SIP) to integrate the DAC and three amplifiers, reducing the circuit board by a whopping 60 percent. This creates more room for the battery and other features. The Vivo APEX is expected to be powered by a Snapdragon 845 and run Android 8.1.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
