Thanks to the phone’s pop-up camera mechanism, Vivo was able to make the display taller and notch-less. The Super AMOLED screen measures 6.44 inches and has a 2,400 x 1,080 resolution and a 20:9 aspect ratio.

The 2.5D curved-edge glass on top of the panel is protected by Schott Xensation UP cover glass, while the back uses Corning Gorilla Glass 6 to make it more resistant to damage and wear and tear.
