Recently, Prolific leaker Ice Universe has posted a photo, the firm claims it to be the outer Glass covering which is the display of the Vivo Nex 3. It might be the presumed name of the next phone in the lineup that’s traditionally been a technology showcase for the Chinese company. The leaks also show that what appears to be two panes of glass with their edges curved around 90-degree angles to completely encase the front, back, and sides of the unannounced handset.
As per the leaks, the handset will have “no hole” and “no notch,” and the phone’s curved sides will give it a screen-to-body ratio of over 100 percent. If the leaks are considered to be true, it means that Vivo Nex 3 probably be the closest phone manufacturer yet to deliver on Jony Ive’s ambition to produce a phone that resembles a single sheet of glass.
As we can see from the image it is quite clear the device’s curvature is quite pronounced and it’s probably one of the biggest curves on a screen so far. We might be looking at the future iterations of the displays as the extreme curves mean there will be almost no visible side bezels. It also means Nex 3 won’t have any cutouts notches or holes for the front-facing camera and sensors. The top and bottom bezels will also be extremely thin.
The original Vivo Nex from the last summer at the front of a recent trend of pop-up Android cameras. If a phone series was going to try to pull off something like this complete glass finish, the Nex series might be it. Also, last year the company had incorporated a 3D new face ID depth-sensing with 3,00,000 sensor points which is 10 times more than Apple face tech in iPhone X that only projects 30,000 IR dots on user’s face.
The new feature had worked by people sitting next to the front camera and allow a 3D mapping at a distance of three meters from the phone. It sends out a pulse of light and calculates the “time of flight” (TOF) of the light to bounce back to the sensors.
Vivo also said to merge this feature with AI tech in the future. It provides you two possible outcomes, first, it improves portrait photography of front camera, second, integrating it with AI beautification Mode which will take full body scan of a person and then pass that information to the system that would intelligently determine and enhance the picture for you. Another to scan clothes so that image could brighten up.
At that time, this feature can be used for motion and gesture recognition as it initiates AR augmented reality applications to scan background furniture and objects.
