Vivo has launched a new Nex series of smartphones in China which is the iteration of the Vivo Apex concept smartphone that was showcased at this year’s MWC. The new Vivo Nex comes with features like full bezel-less display, pop-up selfie camera and under display fingerprint sensor.
To recall, Vivo showcased its full bezel-less smartphone Vivo Apex at MWC 2018. Now, the phone has gone official in China confirming the design of the phone. The new Vivo NEX comes in three variants- one with Snapdragon 710 and other two are running Snapdragon 845. Check here full specifications, expected price in India and more about Vivo Nex.
Vivo Nex Features
The first great feature of Vivo Nex phones is full screen display. The screen takes up the entire front of the device except for a tiny shin at the bottom. It has a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio which is one of the highest we have ever seen. Also, there is no notch at the top. The display is a 6.59-inch AMOLED panel with FHD+ (1080 x 2316 pixels) resolution and 19.3:9 aspect ratio.
Pop-up selfie camera
Since there is no notch on this smartphone, it was a challenge for Vivo where to place the selfie camera. Vivo solved this by using the pop-up front camera which comes out of the top of the display. This is an 8MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture and various AI-powered Face Beauty features.
Another great feature Vivo has brought to this smartphone is the under-display fingerprint scanner. It is the same technology which we first saw on the Vivo X21 which was launched recently in India.
Vivo Nex Specifications
The Vivo Nex comes in three variants: The top model Vivo NEX S is powered by Snapdragon 845 processor with Adreno 630 GPU, coupled with 8GB RAM, and 256 GB internal storage. There is another variant with the same specs as that of the top model but packs 128 GB internal storage. The lowest variant is dubbed as Vivo NEX A and it comes powered by recently launched Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6GB RAM, and 128GB of internal storage.
The rear camera of Vivo Nex is a dual-camera setup where the primary lens is a 12MP Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4um pixel size and a f/1.8 aperture. The secondary camera is a 5MP sensor. This dual camera also comes with 4-axis image stabilization for better stable videos and photos. All three models pack a 4,000 mAh battery.
