Chinese manufacturer Vivo introduces first (almost) borderless, uncut smartphone

The original vision was from Apple. Lenovo even promised, but it turned into a joke. Now the chinese Alive became the first smartphone maker in the world to feature a truly borderless (or nearly so) cut-out handset, essentially placing a floating screen in the hands of users.

This the Vivo NEX!

When I say that he almost borderless, I mean, of course, the discreet "chin" on the bottom of the device which, by the way, is the rule in all so-called "borderless" smartphones in the Android world, with notch or no. That's because Apple is the only company that “folds” the screen to place its drivers hidden behind it, instead of reserving a space at the bottom for them. Still, I can't say that NEX's “chin” takes away its power to impress.

To overcome the physical limitations of design, Vivo has some curious cards up its sleeve. The call speaker built into the screen itself through a technology called Screen SoundCasting that makes the sounds vibrate through the glass and, according to the manufacturer, make the sound quality even better than a traditional model. The digital reader, in turn, also built into the screen itself was the pioneer in terms of presenting a model with the technology earlier this year.

The question is about the durability of the component, but that the good idea (and funny),.

In addition, the Vivo NEX is a state-of-the-art smartphone with character specifications. The infamous Super AMOLED screen is 6.59 inches and a body-screen ratio of 91.24% is the highest rate ever seen on a smartphone. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, coupled with an Adreno 630 graphics chip, and we also have 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, 4,000mAh battery and a dual camera module at the rear, with a 12 megapixel and a 5 megapixel component. Oh, we also have a headphone jack to bury that “needed space” talk a bit more!

There is also a slightly more “modest” version, with the same design and screen but with Snapdragon 710 processor, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The two already leave the factory running Android 8.1 “Oreo” with Vivo's Funtouch modification layer.

Which one has fewer edges for you?

If any of you cheered up, you might want to take the horse out of the rain or start saving for a ticket to China: Vivo NEX will only be sold for $ 1, and will go out for 4,998 yuan at its most expensive version; It will reach the oriental stores in the coming months.

Well, at least it could be the beginning of a new trend did you like?
