Is this smooth metallic bar with no buttons, ports or vents the vivo Apex and could it be coming soon?


Rendered by @VenyaGeskin1 supposedly with official vivo details

Rumoured to be going official as soon as 24 January 2019, renders and even a video of the vivo Apex have appeared. Featuring an all smooth exterior with no ports or jacks (and a hidden pop-up periscope front camera like the vivo nex) the Apex appears to be all screen on the front and a smooth metallic bar on the back with dual rear cameras. There doesn't appear to be any rear fingerprint sensor either, so we assume that it will have an under display fingerprint scanner. No actual buttons were in sight either.

No other features were detailed but since we're still assuming, we think the Apex will likely have wireless charging, use Bluetooth or a form of fast wireless transfer and maybe a piezoelectric speaker as we didn't see any speaker vents too. While they do give an idea of what the vivo Apex could look like, bear in mind that these are unofficial renders so do take them with a pinch of salt. Of course, there's no Malaysia release dates or pricing details yet but it certainly looks like vivo is pushing the envelope with this one.

To be honest, my first reaction to an all screen smartphone was how am I going to hold this? But what do you think? Would you be interested in an all screen smartphone with no ports? Let us know in our Facebook page and stay tuned to
