Prolific leaker Ice Universe published a photograph of what they claim to be the outer glass that covers the display of the Vivo Nex 3, the alleged name of the next cell phone in the series, traditionally a technological one Showcase was for the Chinese company. The leak shows two glass panes with their edges bent 90 degrees to fully cover the front, back and sides of the unannounced handset. According to Ice Universe, the handset has "no hole" and "no notch," and the curved sides of the phone give a screen-to-body ratio of " over 100 percent." "
If that's what Ice Universe on the phone says, correct, this could mean that Vivo is the next phone manufacturer that does not yet meet Jony Ive's ambition to make a phone that resembles a single pane of glass.
It has no hole, no notch, is a complete screen, and forehead and chin are also at the highest level.

But the Leak Many questions about the design of the Vivo Nex 3 remain unanswered. For example, how did the phone's selfie camera overcome the need for a notch or hole cutout? Does it have a pop-up selfie camera like the Vivo Nex or does it use a sub-display camera like the recently announced Oppo prototype? Oppo belongs to the same parent company as Vivo, BBK Electronics. Therefore, it is quite possible that both companies share the underlying technology. Otherwise, the selfie camera could be left out altogether, like the portable Apex 2019 concept phone from Vivo.
It's also unclear what Ice Universe means exactly when the phone is called a "full screen". Does this mean that it has a second screen on the back like the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. And what about this claim "no hole"? If it applies to the glass on the back, where is the main camera and the flash? Will it again be Vivo's "Body Soundcasting" technology, which allows earphones and speakers to be left out by vibrating the screen? Where is the microphone?
Apart from asking if the leak is correct, it's a fascinating hint for the new Vivo handset.
