  • Even more secure than scanning one fingerprint? Scanning two.                  Andrew Hoyle  CNET

This week at MWC, Vivo is showing off what that might look like with its concept phone, the Apex.

The new phone, however, is not bezel-free. The smartphone has minimal bezels on all four sides.

Finally, the front-facing camera - this has been put in a pop-up unit that appears when the phone is put into selfie mode.

The selfie camera - Instead of a fixed camera on the screen, the Apex will have a retractable front-facing camera that can automatically slide in and out of the chassis. The APEX just happens to take this goal to new heights.

The smartphone maker has fitted the world's first half-screen in-display fingerprint scanning technology in the APEX phone that lets the complete bottom half of the OLED screen recognise a fingerprint.

Japan Police Question US Tourist About Severed Head
He had taken several other women to the same condominium, but the police have already confirmed the safety of all of them. The suspect, who arrived in Japan in January, was arrested Thursday on charges of confining the woman against her will.

What Vivo did to the APEX is make the bottom half of the OLED screen.

Unfortunately, anyone hoping to get their hands on this phone will need to wait.

Vivo also integrated the DAC and the three amplifiers together inside the body of the phone. Vivo is employing something similar that it calls Screen SoundCasting Technology that sounds the vibrations right through the display.

This bad boy comes with multiple unique and groundbreaking features, although it's also unlikely to hit stores anytime soon. Does something like the Vivo Apex excite you?

There's another party trick up the sleeve of this in-display fingerprint scanner though, with Vivo saying the technology "enables new usage scenarios, such as the new dual-fingerprint scanning feature. for even greater strengthened security".

India's corruption ranking slips two places to 81 in 2017
In the 2016 CPI ranking, Ghana dropped four percentage points, scoring 43 out of a score of 100, from its 2015 score of 47 points. Corruption takes place rampantly in India and at all levels of society, despite efforts of the government to reign it in.

A globalsmartphone brand focused on introducing ideal sound quality and ultimate photography with cutting-edge technology, Vivo develops innovative and stylish products for young people. Most of those announcements will bring more of the same but the Vivo Apex concept showcases something different.

Vivo says Screen SoundCasting Technology cuts down on sound leakage and optimizes low to high pitch sound, so owners will get a better overall experience while listening to audio.

There are no corners cut, literally or figuratively speaking, in the APEX's design, as hidden proximity and ambient light sensors, plus an inventive 8MP Elevating Front camera, eliminate the need for anything resembling a notch.

See the Verge's hands-on with the device below. This would address one of the many concerns users have with in-display fingerprint scanners being limited to only one small portion of the screen.

Coming into #Mobile World Congress 2018, many people were expecting Samsung's reveal of the new Galaxy S9 [VIDEO] to steal the thunder away from all other cell #phone manufacturers, but Vivo has truly been an underdog champion as of late.
