It is really pathetic to compare "best 2018 Smartphones in US" to "best 2018 smartphones in the World", because the "real" best phones are simply not available in US where I live. Even for smartphones that are available in both China and US, there are more color choices for Chinese buyers.
Perhaps a fused glass design like the ZTE Iceberg concept?:
Waiting to see first submarine phone capable of whitstand saltwater for indifinite ammount of time.
Still, people will cover it with their $5 case and ruin this design. XD
So now vivo is ĀNever SettleĀ ? Instead of the one who started it... :P

Very interesting. I did suggest something like this on some Samsung forum thread years ago, when they had some public "brainstorming" thread going.
It would obviously have to be 100% wireless to work aesthetically.
It could be that vivo is trying to achieve nex dual display models rear display illusion effect throughout the entire phone, possibly front and back, so that the screen would literally "leak" over edges. Or.. I'm just thinking too loud.
Vivo has been quite innovative lately, so I'm looking forward to see what this phone will be like. And it's especially cool that the design was inspired by "The Three Body Problem", that's an awesome book.
My guess is that the entire phone will look seamless, with the display indistinguishable (when turned off) from the rest, like the back display on the ZTE Nubia X.
Took the world by storm? Other than emerging markets and gsmarena readers who knows about vivo? Very few in developed countries know about vivo let alone buy a phone. I don't know why Gsmarena is advertising these craps for so long. These companies make good phones for the price but just because they pay no royalty to patents, no R&D, no after sales service. If companies like xiaomi, vivo, oneplus go on to ignore patents and royalty issues, the innovation and invention will come to a halt.
Got a few ideas.
It probably will have no buttons, no speakers (sound will come through screen), and no charging port (it will charge with wireless charging only)
Pebble looks, smooth all over
Looks cool and would most likely feel good in the hand. But I fear the grip would be an issue, that you simply would drop it very easily. I remember that being a problem with my Iphone 6- without a case.
Im thinking it look more like Honor Magic with a soap bar design. Wrapped around display on 3 sides? Here we go again BBK experimenting weird things on Vivo.
Whackcar, 11 Jan 2019First we had the Vivo Nex. Then we had Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. Now we get Vivo Nex Quad... moreBut it needs hexa, four for the sides (top, right, bottom, left) + front and back. Six in total :-)
