Vivo Apex with Snapdragon 845 announced in China

Vivo has revealed the concept smartphone Vivo Apex in China. The phone was first showcased at MWC 2018. Reports suggest that the device will go for mass production from Q3 of 2018.

The flagship marks Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Notably, the same chip is featured in Samsung Galaxy S9.

Talking about the design, Vivo Apex has a screen-to-body ratio of 91 percent.

One of the highlights of the phone is the under-display fingerprint scanner in the phone, which makes it one of the first smartphones to sport such technology. The company calls it “half-screen” fingerprint sensor. It is worth mentioning that Vivo has already launched X20 Plus UD with this feature.

The device comes with a 5.99-inch OLED display with COF technology and the ambient and proximity sensors. According to the reports, it carries an 8MP ‘Elevating’ front facing camera which is placed at top edge of the phone and pops up in 0.8 seconds.

A lot is yet to confirm regarding the device including RAM, storage, and rear camera details. One can expect the details to come out by mid-2018.

Stay tuned for more tech updates.
