Vivo Apex 2020 comes with Gimbal Camera, 120-Degree Curved Edgeless Screen
After many teasers, Chinese smartphone company Vivo has finally unveiled its concept smartphone Vivo Apex 2020. The smartphone has a 120-degree FullView Edgeless Display that removes side edges and bezels from the front view.
APEX 2020 comes with many disruptive features. The smartphone does not have physical buttons, but virtual sensitive buttons to control power on or off, and it has a unique in-display selfie camera that hides behind the screen.
APEX 2020 runs on Android 10 and is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 865 chipset, which is paired with a 5G modem.
The smartphone comes with a number of interesting photography-related features. It includes “gimbal-stabilizing camera.” There is a thin dual-camera setup in the back panel of the smartphone. The first is a 16-megapixel periscopic camera that features an optical zoom range of 5x to 7.5x.
On the bottom of the module is a 48-megapixel “Gimbal Camera.” Vivo says it managed to embed a tiny “gimbal-like structure” into the main wide-angle camera, providing twice the stabilization as traditional optical image stabilisation (OIS) systems.
“It achieves optical stabilization both in the front-back and left-right inclined directions, which largely keeps the integrity of the image,” Vivo says. “The design of this main camera also achieves a stronger capacity for night photography.”
Other interesting titbits include a unique ‘instant photobomb removal’ feature. Using its powerful computing powers, the phone “can perform real-time image segmentation and background repair synchronously,” removing photobombers from your photos to keep your subject as the centre of attention in the frame, even when backgrounds are busy.
On the front of the camera, the 16-megapixel selfie camera is hidden inside the 6.45-inch 2330×1080 AMOLED display. When the camera is activated, the screen area turns transparent.
Vivo APEX 2020 comes with 60W Wireless Super FlashCharge technology that claims to charge a 2,000mAh battery in 20 minutes. Vivo Apex 2020 comes with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
