At the front of this smartphone, you will find a nearly bezel-less front panel which is very optically appealing. Meanwhile, the notch is presently trimmed down to the extent that it can no longer contain the proximity, earpiece and the ambient sensors, which are now under the display.

As a matter of fact, Vivo succeeded in achieving a 91.64% screen-to-body ratio.
