Vivo on Thursday unveiled its most awaited "APEX 2019" concept smartphone. The "APEX 2019" comes with a full-display fingerprint scanning technology and USB ports replaced by magnetic power connectors, "MagPorts" that would enable both charging and data transfer.

"Offering consumers a glimpse into the future of smartphone design and development and with 'super uni-body' design and full-display fingerprint scanning technology among several other breakthrough features, 'APEX 2019' is a truly exceptional smartphone," said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President, Vivo.
The phone comes with "Touch Sense" technology that replaces the physical buttons on the concept device that would bring capacitive touch and pressure-sensing technologies together.

The company also tried to solve the challenge of limited motherboard space by using a "Duplex Printed Circuit Board design" that increases the space by 20 per cent.
Vivo aims to pioneer in 5G technology standardisation empowered technologies like AI, Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR), with the new concept smartphone.
The company added by saying that in future, the deep integration of 5G and AI will become key to the development of the 5G smartphones.
