Days after teasing the successor to Vivo Apex on Weibo, the Chinese manufacturer has revealed the name of the upcoming smartphone. In a new teaser published on Friday, Vivo divulged that the new phone will be called Vivo Apex 2019. The company is scheduled to unveil the smartphone on January 24 in China. Codenamed Waterdrop, the phone is mostly a mystery at this point, however there is indication that the company will include a liquid metal chassis in the phone.
Ahead of the launch, the renders of the APEX 2019 has appeared online. Before now, Vivo is yet to officially disclose any detail of the APEX 2019. However, the device has only been promoted using the codename “The Water drop”. Vivo recently shared a video on its official Weibo page which shows the Vivo APEX 2019 being felt by passersby. In the video, many of the responses described the gadget as pebble, soap and so on. That gives us an idea that the device will be a sleek one with a glass body.
The renders show the Vivo APEX 2019 will continue with a bezel-less design and apparently a super high screen to body ratio. The device will utilise the in-display fingerprint sensor and would still not have a selfie camera at the front. What we don’t know is if Vivo will retain the pop-up camera design or would shift to the slider design which seems to be gaining ground. The rear design is still unclear as the renders only show the front design.
