While its competitors have launched devices left and right the past couple of weeks, Vivo has been relatively quiet for the most part. But that may change soon, according to someone who has a great track record of leaking devices.

Vivo is reportedly launching a smartphone with a never-before-seen design. It’s code-named The Waterdrop and is said to be “inspired by the cosmic detector in Three-body Problem,” the first installment of a science-fiction trilogy written by Chinese author Liu Cixin.

Are we finally going to see a real bezel-less phone — something with a screen that can truly be called “infinity”?

Are we going to expect a handset with no physical buttons or keys, not even the volume rockers? All glass and no holes perhaps?

Check out the images, and be part of the guessing game. Let us know what you think.

Remember that at about the same time this year in 2018, at the CES trade show in Las Vegas, Vivo showcased the world’s first optical in-display fingerprint sensor. A few weeks later, it debuted the X20 Plus UD, the first model to come with the technology, in China.

A month later, the company introduced the APEX concept phone, which eventually ended up being sold commercially as the Vivo NEX. The device took us a step closer to an all-screen future.

We won’t be surprised then if this time, Vivo is preparing to once again change the game. This leak — or teaser — could prove to be real. The question now could be, will it be released in the Philippines, something that it didn’t do with the NEX?
