The Futuristic No-Button, No-Port Smartphone

  • Published: 12 March 2019
  • The Vivo Apex 2019 is a new take on smartphone design. This concept does away with all buttons and ports in favor of a completely solid form factor. Surprisingly Vivo has also left out the front-facing camera on the Apex 2019 concept. Is the lack of a front facing camera a deal breaker for you or is the compromise worthwhile in exchange for a true, full-display smartphone.

          I think we can live with a small bezel for a front camera and extra sensors......that's not even the biggest complaint today in smartphone tech, it's the lack of innovation and new features, like MORE SENSORS.

            put more sensors on this thing, IR, UV cameras, spectral decomposition of light, pressure sensors for the display etc. That would be really innovative, to have a personal scientific device.

                Seeing the way smartphones companies are going... The Amazon's Not a Phone was way ahead of its time.

                  Ok but let's be real how many phones have actually been destroyed by water. Because to me having full waterproof phone is not worth it if we are going to remove the features.

                    They can at least include a pop-up camera or something like the one in Oppo Reno.This thing will sell very well.

                          A notch is better then having no selfie camera. And what about the sim card slot

                              i can see a phone with no front facing camera if the target audience is 35-40yo + no front facing camera will work when there is no such thing as social media............yh good luck with is this really a consideration you would have to be completely insane to think that would ever catch on NOW an under display camera that is not visible THATS something worth actually considering.

                                            Cant give up my headphone jack until they have earbuds that will last for like 5 days with no charge. Always forget to charge those.

                                              I would hate to use this phone, because I now use a htc u 12 with haptic buttons and it dosent work that well. I like my buttons

                                                We need a front facing camera. I would be amazed ro see a in screen camera no notch or flip.. but a camera that sees through the screen and processing good enough tostop glairs.!

                                                    In 2020, Apple will erase the notch by removing the front facing camera and Face ID and they will call it a feature

                                                        At least they should have a secondary display at the back to use the rear camera as a selfie cam. I guess if this comes for sale, it would cost no less than $1000.

The features you missed is there fact that it does have a front facing camera. It is hidden underneath the screen and uses a.i. to process the order thru the screen. It's not the best picture ever but it is there and it works. And you can buy it
