A few days ago we advanced that the Chinese manufacturer Vivo was working on a very particular mobile phone that had no holes, beyond the microphone, which is tiny. It was expected that it would be the first smarphone of this type but Meizu gave the surprise yesterday when presenting the Meizu Zero, which was defined as the first smartphone without holes in the world. Of course, that terminal had a bump in the area of the cameras that the new Vivo does not have.
The model of the Chinese company is called Live APEX 2019 and it is the evolution of the terminal that was announced last year on these dates and that stood out for its on-screen fingerprint sensor, its retractable front camera and its borderless screen.

A concept with a view to coming true
This model has not been presented as a normal mobile. It is one of the first to use the Snapdragon 855 and its 5G chip but the screen diagonal, resolution or technology has not been confirmed, for example. We do know that you will have the fingerprint sensor under it and that it will occupy almost the entire screen, not just a small area.
Samsung is preparing speakers that work under the screen
Samsung is determined to remove from the mobile any element that is not a screen, and for this they are working on speakers that work under the screen.
It has also been known that the speaker will be removed in favor of a sound system that uses the screen itself as a transmitter.
Nor do we know how its two rear cameras, 12 and 13 Mpx, will work, or if one can be used in front of some form since there is no physical camera or a slot that houses a retractable, as in its predecessor.
Yes, there has been talk of its internal memory, 256 GB or 512 GB, as well as RAM, 12 GB. instead of physical buttons, pressure sensors will be used, something that is not new but that we are seeing will become a trend in the coming months.
This terminal will have a battery that although we do not know its amperage, we do know that it will be charged wirelessly since there is no port to plug a cable. Nor is there to put a headset.
In the back area there are some metal dots that will allow you to use the mobile phone with accessories that expand its capabilities without plugging in the terminal, something similar to what Motorola does with the Moto Mods.
At the moment it is not known the price or where this model will be sold although it is expected that in the MWC 2019 we will leave doubts. Of course, it will be manufactured in white, black and silver colors.
