Vivo Joins The Disturbing Notch Trend With X21, Y85 and V9 Smartphones

Like it or not, Apple is really the trendsetter in phone design. Whether or not are those designs desirable or not , is an entirely different story. Case in point: the AirPods and more recently, the infamous notch on the Apple iPhone X. When Essential Phone came with the notch, it did not draw as much attention because, it was rather subtle, really, but when Apple did, it became the talk of the town. Talks ranging from praises to disgusts. Notwithstanding the controversy of cutting into the display real estate in an awkward manner, several companies have follow suit since.

Vivo Apex: Pop-up Camera, Vibrating Display And “Half-Display Fingerprint Scanner” Is Coming This Year

Somehow it feels like Apple is taking a backseat in innovations, or maybe it was just the case of other handset makers shaking itself up to, you know, up the ante of phone designs. Vivo is one such handset makers who have been somewhat “with the crowd” for most part of the years it has been in existence. However, the Chinese handset maker shook the smartphone world earlier this year by being the first to offer a smartphone with under display fingerprint scanner. You would think these guys will chillax after having becoming the pioneer, right? Nope.

Vivo XPlay 3S 2K Display Smartphone

4K UHD TV is all the rage now (or is it?), but unlike Full HD, is has yet to trickle down to smartphone, so for now a 2K resolution smartphone seems like the “next logical progression”. why not? now that 3K has already comes to laptop, we see no reasons why the 2K display technology can’t call smartphone its home. speaking of which, today the XPlay 3S Smartphone from Chinese handset maker Vivo becomes the world’s first smartphone to tout a 2K Display and that, btw, is an eye-popping 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, packed into its 6-inch IPS display and if you do the math, you will arrive to an insane 490 pixel per inch – a figure that knocks previous ppi king HTC One off the throne, and snagging the crown as the highest pixel per inch smartphone in the market to date. so ppi-crazed folks, take note cos’ this is the phone you want to treat your eyes to.

Vivo X3 Smartphone

can’t get enough of big phone with anorexic profile? then the Vivo X3 Smartphone should put a big grin on your face. equipped with 5″ HD IPS display (with multitouch, of course), this yet another China home grown Android handset sports a super thin 5.75mm profile. in spite of its thinnest, it is still packed to the brim with features, including a quad core MediaTek processor clocking in at 1.5GHz, 1GB RAM, a 8MP main shooter (F2.2; HDR support), a 5MP front-facing camera with wide angle lens, a dedicated audio chip from ESS, an infrared sensor for a la-Touchwiz touch-free gestures, a modest 16GB built-in storage, and a 2,000 mAh. sadly the storage is pretty much fixed which means there’s no room for expandable storage, so your smartphone life with this phone will revolve around the 16GB and nothing more.
