Vivo has officially announced that it will exhibit its first 5G phone at the upcoming MWC event in Shanghai. The name of the device is unknown but it’s highly possible that we would see the Apex 2019 device which was introduced back in January. The phone was introduced as a concept, so it’s possible we may see something inspired by it or itself at the event. The MWC event will be held in Shanghai next week, starting from June 26 to June 29.
In other interesting news, the Chinese company took to Weibo to brag about its latest invention in the fast-charging tech. The company has announced that it has successfully developed the 120W Super FlashCharge tech which could charge a device with 4,000mAH battery up to 50 percent in just 5 minutes. The interesting claim is that the phone should be able to get fully charged in 13 minutes, and in 14 seconds. This is one step ahead of Oppo’s Super VOOC fast charging technology that claims to fully charge a 3,400mAH battery in 35 minutes.
Talking about the Vivo Apex 2019, the device has an all-display design without a notch or a punch-hole. It packs a dual-camera setup at the back and is powered Snapdragon 855 processor with X50 5G modem for 5G connectivity. Vivo has ditched physical buttons for pressure-sensitive side frames. The device has no charging port either, that’s how magnetic connecting pins have been used which will allow users to charge the device as well as transfer data.
It’s currently unknown when Vivo will bring this new fast-charging tech to the market or what new device will embrace it.
