The Vivo APEX concept smartphone sporting a full-screen display with a 98 percent aspect ratio and a retractable selfie camera made its first appearance at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in 2018. After a positive response, the company launched its flagship — Vivo Nex and Nex S smartphone with a motorised pop-up camera.
