The Vivo APEX has a 5.99-inch OLED display with COF technology.  In order to deliver full screen experience, the Chinese manufacturer has embedded the ambient and proximity sensors under the display. The screen doubles up as earpiece and loudspeaker as both are placed beneath it. Unlike the under-display fingerprint sensor on the Vivo X20 Plus UD that is available only at one spot on the bottom portion of the screen, the half part of the display of the Vivo APEX is integrated with in-screen fingerprint reader. This technology is dubbed by the company as Half-Screen Fingerprint Scanning Technology.  It carries support for multi-fingerprint recognition.

On the top edge is the hidden selfie camera that can be elevated when required. It takes only 0.8 seconds for the front camera to pop-up from the top. The Snapdragon 845 chipset is present under the hood of the Vivo APEX.

With System in Package (SIP) technology, the Vivo APEX offers Hi-Fi audio experience. It is also equipped with three amplifiers and DAC. The camera of the phone supports Super HDR that has a limited dynamic range of up to 14 EV. It is based on the principles of multi-frame compositing and smart optimization, along with ultra-dynamic, multi-frame preferences, character optimizations, natural tones, and advanced AI Algorithm.
