Vivo says that the APEX will have a 98% screen-to-body ratio

The APEX is said to have 1.8 mm bezels on the top and sides of the device while the bottom will have 4.3 mm. It will have a screen size of 5.99 inches. Vivo is touting it for having, possibly, the highest screen-to-body ratio ever. They said that if they are able to reduce the bottom bezels to 1.8 mm as well then they can achieve more or less a 98% screen to body ratio.

Apple, ASUS, and Huawei please take note!

They also said that the notch will not appear on the APEX which is slowly becoming a trend on 2018 flagships. They made the comparison that both the iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8 did not reach even a 90% screen-to-body ratio. That is why they are saying the APEX, if able to achieve it, will be the first to have that high of a screen-to-body ratio.
