But i think for the average user, it wouldnt be a deal breaker. i wouldnt need a tablet if i have this much screen in this form factor.

7.7, 19 May 2018Probably in the small top bezel like the PH-1 or Mix 2/2SThe Essential's sensors are in the notch just above the lens, which is why is 'deeper' than most notches. I'll have to look into the MiMix implementation.
I think, or maybe everyone else thinks of this as well, the only concern for Vivo Apex is the popping in and out front-facing camera. Will it last especially for those selfie addicts, who from time to time would grab their phone and take a shot of their faces. ^_^ \/
I hope it would be flexible and durable enough to withstand all odds. LOL cause this kind of design will be a trend-breaker.
When more of the OEMs produce a super minimal front screen like this, the only discerning profile for characteristic, design, and branding left would be at the back, the razor-thin bezels, and the frame sandwiching by the side. Mmm... Yummynomnom! Sorry, what's that you say, Samsung? You have patents? Just patents and renders, though

Hakaishin Beerus, 19 May 2018Maybe you should watch the video first & then comment.Don't act like a dumbheaded..He did watch it. I did watch it when it came out.
You have zero comprehension skills.
The video is presenting the prototype.
This article is NOT about that prototype. It is about the production-ready version.
Maybe you don't know what prototype means.
Maybe you don't know what production-ready means.
Whatever the reason, you don't have comprehension skills. It's called functional illiteracy.
Imperator Neubaticus, 19 May 2018Comprehension skills please. Or maybe try reading the article before making ignorant comments. Maybe you should watch the video first & then comment.Don't act like a dumbheaded..

You all are way behind..editors of GSMarena... Don't need to look at these leaked specs...Watch it live... It's been unboxed at unbox therapy on May 5,2018.You are giving the news at 20th May... Have a look at it
Don't tell me this is gonna cost more. My wallet is burning!
Vivo Apex > Iphone X
Waiting until such design goes to midrange products.
LG Superfan, 18 May 2018Vivo usually prices its phone too high so dont expect this to be less than $700 with sd660I guess it's not bad(depending on the context), imagine what apple are gonna price this, i bet at least north $1500+ for the base model

An acoustic waveguide to a hole in the top bezel would be preferred, even if it requires a slightly larger bezel. Also, where did they fit the proximity and ambient light sensors? If they're in the 'chin' I think it's going to cause problems.

This is what full view or infinity display truly means. No bezels and no notch in sight. Pop-up front camera is the best solution for phones with no notch and infinity display. Great job, Vivo. Hopefully it will come with an underdisplay fingerprint sensor which is gonna work on half the screen. The APEX has to be one of the most anticipated phones of 2018. Period.
