Plenty of smartphone manufacturers demoed their current technologies at CES 2019, but vivo decided to do its own thing. The company showcased elements of a design, called Waterdrop, that is going to arrive on January 24. Today vivo posted another image on its Weibo profile, effectively revealing the new device will be called vivo APEX 2019.

Almost a year ago we saw the first vivo APEX that was essentially a concept smartphone with pretty much bezel-less screen, pop-up camera and UD scanner that worked anywhere in the bottom half of the display. Since the word apex is a synonym for the highest point of achievement, we expect the new APEX 2019 to showcase outstanding technologies.
A tipster suggested earlier the phone will subvert peoples past perception of smartphones. We are yet to see if this will bring outstanding design or the screen will spill on the actual rim or something else that a manufacturer has never done to its phones.
