The year 2018 was fabulous for Vivo as it began with the launch of the X20 Plus UD as the world’s first smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner. In June, it unveiled the Vivo NEX flagship which came with innovative features like notch-less display and pop-up selfie camera. At the end of the year, the Chinese manufacturer released the Vivo NEX Dual Display with front and rear facing screens. It appears that the company is now gearing up to start the year 2019 with a bang by launching a remarkable smartphone. Popular tipster Ice Universe has claimed that Vivo is working a smartphone that is codenamed as “The Waterdrop” and has claimed that it will be sporting a very unique design that has been never seen on any other smartphone before. He has also shared a leaked image that shows off a corner of the smartphone.

At the beginning of 2018, Vivo had teased the Vivo APEX concept phone with an unexpected design. The smartphone was later on made available in the market as Vivo NEX. It seems that the company is going to apply the same strategy by teasing a new smartphone with remarkable design.

The leakster has claimed that “The Waterdrop” smartphone is inspired from the cosmic detector in the “The Three-Body Problem.” The below shown leaked image suggests that the upcoming Vivo phone will be sporting a durable and smooth metal or glass body.

There is a possibility that “The Waterdrop” smartphone may not feature any hardware buttons or holes for ports. The rear shell of the phone curves towards its middle frame. It could be sporting a very narrow middle frame. The tipster has claimed that it will be first ever device in the history of mobile phones to sport the new design.
