vivo's APEX 2020 has a camera in the display and a zoom periscope on the back
It was supposed to happen at a lavish event in Barcelona at the MWC, but the Coronavirus messes up vivo's plans. The vivo APEX 2020 concept phone is nonetheless official and we get a glimpse of the technologies the company has been working on.
We've come to expect innovation that's borderline unreal from APEX concept phones and the APEX 2020 willingly obliges. It has a seamless body with no openings and instead relies on pressure-sensing capacitive buttons.
Its 6.45-inch 2330x1080px FullView display incorporates a 16MP in-display selfie camera, while the sides end on 120-degree sloping edges. The camera uses 4 in 1 pixel binning for resulting 4MP shots and is covered by glass that's six times more light transmittable that the rest of the protective sheet.
The cameras on the rear are a bit more interesting. First there's a 48MP camera with a gimbal-like stabilization mechanism, which vivo claims has a 200% extended angle of stabilizing compared to traditional OIS systems. The sensor will combine pixels for 12MP images.
The other is a 16MP periscope camera with an actual zoom range. It will be able to optically go from 5x to 7.5x, without digital magnification. The lens system in the periscope structure is very sophisticated with two groups of fixed lenses and two groups of moving lenses.
