We are halfway through 2018, and we have already seen a fair share of smartphone launches. It is also safe to say that, this year has by far been the year of innovations when it comes to smartphones. Smartphone companies have raised the ante by introducing new and innovative features in their flagship smartphones. Additionally, smartphones in 2018 haven’t just focused on high-end specifications but also on new and innovative features. Here are the smartphones in 2018 that launched with new innovative features.
As far as smartphones in 2018 go, Vivo Nex is the first true bezel-less smartphone. The smartphone sports thin narrow bezels on either side of the phone, giving it a near 100 per cent body-to-screen ratio. With an under-display fingerprint sensor and a pop-up front-facing camera, the smartphone has avoided the need for a notch. The selfie camera automatically pops up when you activate the front camera mode.

The company has claimed that with such a powerful battery, the smartphone can last for a week on a single charge.
