Vivo does not seem to want the user to place anything inside the phone. Besides the ports, there is no original SIM port, so the eSIM chipset should be used. The phone also does not come with any slots for the speaker, and instead, depends on the Vibrating Audio Transfer technology.
The Vivo, a curved glass design, is the first phone from the Chinese company to support 5G VGN networks thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 modem. Internally, the phone features the latest generation of Qualcomm processors, the Snapdragon 855, RAM 12 GB RAM and 256GB internal storage.
On the back of the Apex 2019, Vivo developed a 13 megapixel and 12-megapixel dual-frame rear camera. Unlike last year’s phone, the new phone lacks a front camera, either on the screen or fixed on a Vivo NEX phone.
Vivo did not disclose the details of the phone screen but said the screen was able to produce the sound to function instead of the loudspeaker removed from the interface, but there is a small hole in the lower edge of the device appears to be the microphone.
The phone’s battery capacity is 2000 mAh, supporting 18-watt express charging.
