The OPPO Find X with its revolutionary sliding camera mechanism will be arriving in Malaysia next week and vivo isn’t going to sit quietly on the sidelines. vivo Malaysia has just announced that they will be bringing in their latest NEX smartphone into our market and it could go on sale within the next couple of months.
The Xiaomi Mi MIX was one of the first modern smartphones to push the boundaries of a bezel-less display. The screen stretches all the way to the top edges of the device, however, there’s a thick bottom chin which houses the front camera.
When Xiaomi introduced the Mi MIX 2 and MIX 2S, it felt like Xiaomi is turning their “concept” smartphone into a conventional device. The bezels got thicker and they still retain the bottom chin. Next to the new vivo NEX and OPPO Find X, the Mi MIX doesn’t feel that special anymore but that is all about to change with the new one. A couple of photos that alleged to be the Mi MIX 3 have surfaced online and from the looks of it, Xiaomi might have just made the perfect “Full Screen” smartphone.
When it comes to flagship smartphones, nothing much has changed in terms of form factor. Almost all smartphone makers adopt a slim candy bar design and the latest trend at the moment is to put the largest display with as little bezels as possible. To solve the front camera conundrum, OPPO has done something very different with its latest Find X. Its a new smartphone with a slider and OPPO has confirmed that it’s coming soon to Malaysia.
Wow. I’ve seen a lot of really cool smartphones launched in 2018, but this brand new flagship device from OPPO is the first one to truly blow my mind. This is the OPPO Find X and it may have the most jaw-dropping piece of smartphone design yet. Think vivo NEX but turned up to eleven.
Just last month, Lenovo had started teasing their very own all-screen smartphone that’s called the Lenovo Z5. A lot of people got excited when Lenovo released teasers of the phone that doesn’t come with a notch. Turns out, the Z5 was just another typical “FullView” smartphone with a notch and everyone was fooled, us included.
If you’re still searching for a truly all-screen experience, vivo probably has the device you’ve been looking for. They have announced the vivo NEX and this is probably the closest thing to an all-screen bezel-less smartphone.
Shrinking bezels and notched displays are all steps towards an ultimate goal: An all-screen smartphone. A device with no notch, chin nor forehead. The kind of phone you see depicted in sci-fi movies as the “phone of the future”.
It’s not easy, obviously, because the front of your smartphone has a whole bunch of sensors, controllers and various other elements necessary to give you a full smartphone experience. That meant the past few years have been all about moving these elements around, finding compromises and coming up with new technology to overcome this final hurdle.
And while everyone’s looking at the big dogs at Samsung, Huawei or Apple for this, it appears that Lenovo could be the first company to crack the all-screened smartphone code. Here’s the Z5 and it apparently has a borderline absurd 95% screen-to-body ratio.
With virtually every Chinese smartphone maker releasing an iPhone X inspired “notch” display smartphone, you’ll be pleased to know that Xiaomi isn’t following the same trend, just yet. For their upcoming Mi MIX 2S, it was earlier speculated that Xiaomi could add a notch at the top of its bezel-less phone while others have indicated that it might settle for a corner notch design just to house its front camera.
Mobile World Congress is kicking off this week and you can expect smartphone launches happening back to back. Xiaomi wants to make headlines as well and they will be introducing a new smartphone in the next few days. They have just posted a teaser for their upcoming device with a random 6-digit number. What could this be?
After all the teasing, vivo has finally released its own version of a near-bezel-less smartphone and it’s called the vivo V7+. However, while one of the smartphone’s biggest selling points is its large display with minimal bezels, there’s one thing you should know about it before you get all excited.
Xiaomi stole the limelight yesterday with their announcement of the Mi A1 smartphone that marries the company’s great bang-for-buck hardware and the stock vanilla goodness of Android One. But while people were fawning over Xiaomi’s announcement, vivo also has something in the works that’s due to launch tomorrow.
Its big selling feature? A near bezel-less FullView display like the one on the Samsung Galaxy Note8.
