The appearance of today's smartphones is largely determined by several variants of shapes, from which manufacturers most often choose fashionable but not necessarily practical solutions. However, there is a producer on the market who is preparing a small revolution in style.

Last year, most phones looked similar and offered a set consisting of: a screen of about six inches with an indentation and a back panel of glass. Notch, widespread by Apple, has become so persistent in the minds, and then smartphones, producers, that to this day we feel the echoes of this phenomenon and we encounter them in various forms, including in the form of indentations in the minimized tear shape.

Few producers resisted the apparent frameless magic and could not get involved in the Cupertino corporation, which by the way begins to regret the introduction of this patent and hides notes on many official graphics of the latest iPhones. There is therefore a chance that we will not see an indentation of the new smartphones in September.

VIVO in spite of indentation

One of the most interesting and independent artists was the Chinese VIVO, which went against the current and offered a smartphone VIVO Nex, a real flagship without frames.

The problematic selfie camera, the main reason for the indentation, was hidden in a neat and durable mechanism sliding out of the casing. This innovative solution turned out to be a dead end of evolution, because none of the mobile giants took a thought and used a mobile webcam – in this form – at home. Yes, there are later revising sliders, but it is difficult to refer them directly to the VIVO model.

The mysterious VIVO model

Now we meet in the new year, where the holes in the screen lurk around the corner, and VIVO is planning another premiere. Once again revolutionary.

The phone, bearing the name "Waterdrop" , appeared on the first revealed graphics betraying rounded edges on each side . The streamlined shape is so far everything we know about, while the opinions of the initiated people point to something we have not seen before. The side frame is to be reduced to a minimum, and it is in vain to look for volume buttons and a switch. In the media there is even a statement that the smartphone will not use physical buttons, and even get rid of all ports.

This would be possible due to a series of drastic changes in the removal of the jack connector for wireless music listening, the lack of USB type C for wireless charging and a fingerprint reader integrated with the screen. One thing is certain: we could not see such a smartphone yet, and knowing the trends of VIVO, which was the first to introduce a biometric reader in the screen and as one of the first creators used innovations in the form of a double screen and a slide-out webcam, we can start preparing for the hit. Hit in the sense of a revolutionary shape, but will the mysterious model be able to become a sales hit? Everything will show time. And further information about him. Source
