Vivo Makes its Stunning All-Screen Phone a Reality

Vivo NEX and its elevating camera are now official

The Vivo Nex S is powered by 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 845 processor coupled with 8GB of RAM with 128GB/ 256GB storage. Some of the Nex S's most noteworthy features - like its in-display fingerprint sensor - will surely make their way to more widely-available phones in due time.

Vivo has also incorporated the fingerprint sensor in the display, much like the Vivo X21, that was launched in India recently.

Vivo has also added an impressive camera to both the devices. 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. The Vivo NEX features a 6.59-inch Super AMOLED screen that is dubbed as Ultra FullView Display by Vivo. Now the company is bringing the Apex to market under a new name, called the Vivo Nex S. In any case, it should be an improvement over the company's previous devices which sported in-display fingerprint scanners. Like so many other groundbreaking Chinese phones, the Nex line will only be available in China (for now, anyway) later this month and nearly certainly won't make it to our shores, as Vivo doesn't import its wares to the U.S.

As far as we can tell, the only serious issue with both Nex handsets is availability. The front camera has an aperture rate of f/2.0. It was already pretty reliable on Vivo X21, as seen in MKBHD's video, so it should be better in the Vivo NEX.

The device also sports the same cameras at the rear, however there is no retractable front camera. Vivo has also added a 4000mAh battery. Vivo has managed to do that by adding a sliding front-facing camera module and replacing the earpiece with Cantilever Piezoelectric earpiece, same as the Xiaomi Mi Mix. Through voice commands, Jovi can be used for launching apps and it is capable of image recognition, translation, scanning, shopping, encyclopedia and map reading.

The Vivo NEX has been on the headlines since it was teased at MWC earlier this year. The power / lock, volume up and volume down buttons are placed on the right side of the Vivo NEX, the phone's customizable physical key sits on the left, while a Type-C USB port sits on the bottom of the device, and the company even managed to include a 3.5mm headphone jack here, it's placed on the top of the device.

The device is available for pre-orders from tomorrow (13 June) and will be available in stores from June 23 in China.

Based on the launch, the Vivo NEX that is equipped with the Snapdragon 710 chipset will be priced at RMB3839 (~RM2394) while the Vivo NEX equipped with the Snapdragon 845 will be priced at RMB4498 (~RM2805) and RMB4998 (~RM3117) for the 128GB variant and 256GB variant respectively.
