Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. That means what defines beauty is in your mind. That means the most beautiful smartphone on planet earth is imaginary. No ports. No Notch. No bezel. No buttons.
There is no shortage of smartphone makers, and most of them struggle to get by because Apple and Samsung take home about 80-percent of the entire industry’s revenue and profits (and Apple gets most of that) so it become much easier to create imaginary smartphones than actual phones someone will buy.
Enter the Vivo Apex. The most beautiful smartphone that never was.
Look, Ma! No holes.
Well, except for the camera holes on the backside. Otherwise, the imaginary Vivo Apex has done away with all the standard accouterments we know and love in today’s crop of iPhones– no ports, no buttons, no visible bezel.
Other than that, was has changed since the iPhone debuted in 2007? Flat slab of glass with rounded corners. Oliver Craig:
Vivo has ditched all ports, buttons, notches, and anything else that could interrupt the next Apex concept’s design.
There it is. Truth always comes out. Concept. Or, rather, concept. Vivo Apex might hit the streets and it might not. Twitter can have a mind altering effect on people. Ask the president.
If there’s no Notch then Vivo Apex must have an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Cool. What about the Selfie Cam on the front? Vivo has a reputation among the imagination inclined and had another concept smartphone with a pop-up camera. FullView wasn’t exactly a big seller on Amazon.
For what it’s worth, it’s easy to put such unique features into a smartphone these days if all you have to do is make a few hundred. Apple’s new iPhone models sell about 100-million each year so manufacturing cool new features at scale is the real challenge.
If there are no buttons then how do you turn it on? Wireless charging is in vogue these days but pop-up selfie cameras are not exactly all the rage, are they?
