Yet again, Vivo announced a new flagship, a phone that “fulfills the bezel-less dreams”, the Vivo Nex. Actually, this smartphone is based on Vivo Apex, which we saw at Mobile World Congress in February 2018. As similar to Vivo Apex, the Nex also has no notch and very minimum bezels, the selfie camera pops out from the top edge of the phone when required. So, let’s talk about the Vivo Nex price in China, specifications, features, and availability.
Further, the company has replaced the earpiece speaker with glass-vibrating “screen sound casting technology”. Similar to the Vivo Apex, the Nex also uses in-display fingerprint sensor, however, unlike Apex, it does not cover the large area.
Talking about the specifications, it couldn’t go higher than the highest-end specs available in the market. There is a Snapdragon 845 processor, coupled with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The screen size measures 6.59 inches with 1080p+ OLED display.
Optics department is also quite attractive with 12-megapixel, f/1.8 aperture lens + 5-megapixel with f/2.4 aperture, as the primary cameras. For selfies, there is an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 module which pops up when required.
There is also a toned-down version of Vivo Nex called Vivo Nex A. The main difference from high-end Nex is the processor, RAM and fingerprint sensor. The Vivo Nex A has Snapdragon 710 CPU with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The fingerprint sensor is placed on the back of the device. Remaining rest of the specs are exactly same as of Vivo Nex (S). And guess what? It also has 3.5mm audio jack, in both variants.
Vivo Nex Price in China
For now, the company has just announced the device, it might take a while to flood in the market. The Vivo Nex price in China 4998 Yuan, which converts about $780 (Rs. 80,000 roughly) for the highest-end variant. The Vivo Nex will be available only in China for the moment, hopefully, it will be available outside China too.
Definitely, Vivo has stepped towards the right direction, showing the possible future of the bezel-less and under-display fingerprint sensor smartphones. Vivo Nex is for those who want to have a legitimate bezel-free smartphone possible. The design looks sleeker than the boxy Vivo Apex. Still, the Vivo is making such devices, giving enough reason to dream about notchless future.
