Hello Mi Fans !!!
According to a new patent registered at the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Chinese phone maker Vivo may be close to changing the way we think of a smartphone. The brand may be thinking of wiping out all the external buttons on its smartphones, as it appears in the registryAt the beginning of the year, the company had already shown the concept of the APEX 2019, a smartphone with no button or external input, symbolizing the way the company viewed the smartphones of the future. The discovery of the patent registry, made by the LetsGoDigital website, is an indicator that this concept is of a not too distant future.The patent, which speaks of a device codenamed "VivoX", does not go into detail about what exactly it would be, and speaks only if it is a class 9 device - category that includes smartphones, cell phones, headphones wireless earphones and battery chargers. As Vivo is known only for among the items in this category to produce smartphones, it is very likely that VivoX is a new device - but there is also the possibility that it is the same foldable smartphone that the company will also launch soon , or APEX itself earlier this year.
For now, there are three distinct possibilities: that VivoX is the company's foldable smartphone, whose first images began to circulate in February; that it is the trade name of APEX 2019; or that the patent has been registered only to ensure the use of the name, and the company has not decided what exactly the device will be.No matter what it really is, producing a business smartphone with a completely flat design with no button or external connector is not an easy task. But as the company has shown at several other times, Vivo is a company that likes to innovate in its business, and this is the kind of innovation that would make it stand out among its competitors in the fierce Chinese market.
Do you think smartphones without buttons will be good?
