Vivo debut first 'zero-bezel' smartphone

Is it a gimmick or the future?

Vivo have officially announced their first smartphone with zero-bezels and a pop-up selfie camera, the VIvo Nex.

Based on the Apex concept device shown off at this year's Mobile World Congress, the Vivo Nex features a 6.59-inch 1080p+ OLED display with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24%. It's not entirely without bezels - as a small 'chin' remains at the bottom edge of the edge - but it's well ahead of the competition.

Under the hood, the Nex also boasts a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, 4,000mAh battery and 256GB of storage.

In lieu of a notch like that found on the Huawei P20 and iPhone X, Vivo have opted to utilize a pop-up selfie camera (8-megapixels, f/2.0) that rises out of the top-edge of the device. This comes paired up with a dual lens camera on the back (12-megapixels, f/1.8 + 5-megapixels f/2.4).

For better or worse, Vivo are currently only looking to launch the device in China. However, as demand from consumers increases for no-bezel devices, expect other vendors to launch similar products sooner rather than later.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
