New Vivo Nex Phone Has No Notch, and Almost No Bezels

Vivo NEX

Vivo NEX

That all-screen design wouldn't have been completely possible if Vivo didn't have the guts to stick the 8 megapixel front camera in a retracting mechanism.

After being in the leaks from the last couple of months, the Vivo NEX was officially listed on Vivo's official website ahead of the launch. While both the variants come with the same design, only the flagship edition comes with pop-up selfie camera and in-display fingerprint scanner. The NEX also features a third-generation in-display fingerprint sensor, with the brand stating that the new sensor is 50% better at recognition accuracy with a broader detection area and 10% faster unlock speed. The Lenovo phone only comes in a mid-range version, whereas the Vivo Nex also has a high-end variant.

As for the rest of the specs, the Vivo NEX has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, an Adreno 630 graphics processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery and a (slightly disappointing) dual 12/5-megapixel camera on the back. The mid-end variant has the same specs as that of the highest-end variant except for the internal storage as it packs 128GB storage. The Vivo Nex S comes with either 128GB or 256GB of inbuilt storage.

Coming to the camera department, the smartphone is rumored to be fitted with a dual camera module likewise any other premium smartphone. Also keeping in line with modern trends is a dual-lens camera system on the back, that combines 12- and 5-megapixel sensors. Android 8.1 running beneath Vivo's own Funtouch OS 4.0 is what's powering the Vivo NEX.

The VIVO NEX will be available in China later this year. But that will only matter to Chinese smartphone users who pick up the Vivo Nex.

For photography, the Vivo NEX A Comes equipped with a dual rear camera setup with a combination of a 12MP Sony IMX363 primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, dual-core pixels and 4-axis OIS and a 5MP secondary sensor f/2.4 aperture. However, the S version will boast a Snapdragon 845 chip with a huge 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. The cheapest variant with SD710 costs 3,898 Yuan (about Rs 41,000).

But what about the front-facing camera, proximity sensors, and earpiece?

Vivo even embedded a fingerprint sensor supplied by Goodix into the display. There is a dedicated button beside the camera that triggers the voice assistant on the long-press action. It supports functions such as smart map reading, encyclopedia, shopping, translation, scanning, among others. NEX demonstrates Vivo's determination to test the limits and break industry conventions. If you are a die-hard Vivo fan then today we are having a good news for you. Both the phones come with 3.5mm audio jack and 4G VoLTE support. It will be available in black and red color options. The phone is now up for pre-orders and will go on sale starting June 23. Share us your views by posting your comments below.
