The whole front of a new smartphone phone is found in a novel way to create a monster screen

If you bought a smartphone last year or even saw a smartphone released at that time, you probably noticed a new design trend. In a bid to make their screen as big as possible, the manufacturers have found ways to wrap their display around the front-facing camera. Apple has introduced many "grooves" to iPhone X, and others, like essential, have a tiny left for just a camera.
But Vivo, a subsidiary of the world's third largest smartphone company, Chinese firm BBK Electronics, has taken another tack, its new Nexus smartphone, which you saw during this year's football World Cup, is not widely seen, front cameras are not seen at first glance. This means that the phone is almost entirely 6.59-inch high-defender display without a strange shape cut.
Vivo Nexus, but actually has a front-facing camera. It's hidden on the top of the phone body, and when you pop up as a short range you automatically turn on the mode. It opens up and closes as it also makes a bunch of whirring and sound beeping.

Although this solution is definitely unique, it may not be the most realistic pop-up camera seems not particularly strong, and I can easily see it turn it off incorrectly, or may come out of excessive use by motorbike's average self-motivated child. Vivo's sister company, Oppo, which initially sells devices in Southeast Asia, China and India, it introduced its own concept for an all-screen phone. But instead of a pop-up camera, a camera from Oppo Find X is hidden under the entire slide-part of a phone that automatically pops its individual timeline. It's like a modern day's sidekick phone.
Vivo has achieved a more technical achievement. Unlike Apple, it also managed to include a fingerprint scanner on the screen itself. The reader is sitting directly under the glass and you can just rest your rest in front of the phone to unlock your finger, the size of the default home button or fingerprint reader will lose any display on the device.
Nex has more offers than just a sport camera trick and fingerprint scanner. It is directly under 8-GB memory and 256 GB storage, a massive battery and 12-megapixel rear camera for port-style shots with a 5-megapixel second camera. It will cost 4,998 yuan (about $ 760) when it is released.
Most people in Europe and North America will not be able to buy Vivo's latest phones, but this is mostly announced in the World Cup. The phone can only be found in China, according to the difference. But it is definitely a sign of the latest power of smartphone manufacturers. If the next versions of Samsung's flagship phones are included under an undergraduate scanner, it may not be surprising, and companies are probably trying to differentiate their design designs. But they probably will not be a fun as Nex's tiny periscope.
