Prolific leaker Ice Universe has published a photo of what they say is the outer glass covering the Vivo Nex 3 screen, the alleged name of the next phone on the line that has traditionally been a technological showcase . For the Chinese company. The leak shows what two glass panels appear to be, with their edges curved around 90 degree angles to completely cover the front, back and sides of the unannounced headset. According to Ice Universe, the headset will not have "holes" or "will not have a notch," and the curved sides of the phone will give it a screen-to-body ratio of " above 100 percent. "
If what Ice Universe says about the phone is accurate, it means that Vivo could be the closest phone manufacturer to fulfill Jony Ive's ambition to produce a phone that looks like a single sheet of glass.
It has no hole, notch, it is a full screen, and the forehead and chin are also top level.

However, the leak leaves a lot of questions unanswered about the design of the Vivo Nex 3. For example, how did you overcome the Need for a notch or a cutout of perforations the camera selfie of the phone? Do you have a pop-up selfie camera like Vivo Nex, or use a camera under the screen as Oppo's recently announced prototype? Oppo is owned by the same parent company as Vivo, BBK Electronics, so it is entirely possible that the two companies can share the underlying technology. Otherwise, you could completely skip the selfie camera, such as the Apex 2019 concept phone from Vivo.
It is also unclear what exactly Ice Universe means when they said the phone has a "full screen." Does this mean that it has a second screen? On the back as the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. And what about that "no hole" claim? If applied to the glass on the back, where are the main camera and the flash? Will you include Vivo's "body sound transmission" technology again, which allows you to skip the headset and speaker when you vibrate the screen? Where is the microphone?
Leaving aside the questions, if the leak is accurate, it is an interesting provocation for the new Vivo phone.
