Vivo Nex announced: Full-screen powerhouse

VivoNex

For now, the Vivo NEX is limited to the Chinese market, where the phone will go on sale for the equivalent of $610. Vivo says that this is the third-generation in-display fingerprint scanning tech, as the first two were included in the Vivo X20 UD and X21, but the company did not share any additional info regarding the NEX's fingerprint scanner, so we're not exactly sure how long it takes it to unlock a phone. This technology hides the fingerprint sensor underneath the display while still delivering fingerprint access on the front of the phone.

As far as we can tell, the only serious issue with both Nex handsets is availability. One of the most interesting new feature in the Vivo Nex S and Nex A is the Screen SoundCasting technology.

Vivo's solution for the notch is certainly intriguing (and it looks really cool), but it remains to be seen if the retractable camera works seamlessly in day-to-day usage.

Internationally, the Vivo NEX featuring Snapdragon 710 SoC is known as Vivo NEX A. The 128 GB and 256 GB NEX Ultimate variants are internationally known as Vivo NEX and Vivo NEX S. Except for the slightly thick bottom bezel, the other sides of the screen are surrounded very thin bezels.


The Vivo NEX features a 6.59-inch fullHD+ Super AMOLED display, along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Vivo has also incorporated the fingerprint sensor in the display, much like the Vivo X21, that was launched in India recently. However, the highlight of the device is the 8-megapixel pop-up selfie camera which reveals itself when you activate the front camera on the camera app.

What's mentioned above are the major differences between Vivo NEX variants. The phone is running Android 8.1 Oreo, so that's a good thing to know.

The vertical dual camera setup that lies on the posterior of the Vivo NEX includes an f/1.8 aperture 12-megapixel Sony IMX363 sensor that has a pixel size of 1.4um. AI is also a part of the package, with features like AI Scene Recognition, AI HDR, AI Filters and AI Photo Composition. They also pack 4000mAh battery with fast charging support. Like Samsung's Bixby, this too can be activated with a dedicated button on the side of the phone. It aims to provide an immersive gaming experience based on software and hardware optimization and is also optimised to run games made using Unreal Engine. The Nex comes in a single 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the Nex Ultimate comes with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB/256GB of internal storage. 52,775). The pre-orders of these phones will begin in China from June 13 and their shipments will start on June 23.
