A month after launching its futuristic smartphone Vivo NEX A and Vivo NEX S in China, Vivo on yesterday has officially launched the innovative Vivo NEX flagship (one and only Vivo NEX S) with a motorized elevating selfie camera at an event in India.
Vivo NEX: The Futuristic Smartphone
The Vivo NEX comes with an ultra bezel-less display, in-display fingerprint sensor and a pop-up selfie camera which pops out whenever required. So here’s everything you need to know about the Vivo NEX flagship.
The Vivo NEX features a 6.59″-inch Super AMOLED display with 2316 × 1080 pixels of resolution (Full HD+ ) and 19.3:9 aspect ratio. It offers a true bezel-less edge-to-edge display with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24 %, (—the company calls it as ultra FullView display).
In terms of the design, the Vivo NEX features tiny bezels which measure 1.71 mm on the sides and 2.16mm on the top. On the front, it hides notch for those who want a bigger display. To achieve this, Vivo ditched the standard earpiece and adopts the Screen SoundCasting Technology, which turns the entire screen into a speaker.
While the back of the phone is covered by the glass back looks stunning. The glass black is coated with (—Vivo says) “Holographic Diffraction Dynamic Color” illusion technology, which sees thousands of “diffraction units” laser engraved onto the back of the phone to create a “dreamlike sci-fi effect”.It also uses a ray data compensation algorithm that hides the light sensor at the bottom of the display, thanks to an innovative design. while there is a micro-slit infrared sensor is also hidden at the top of the display.
Processor, RAM, and Storage.
Under the hood, it is powered by an Octa-Core Snapdragon 845 64-bit 10nm Mobile Processor (—is clocked at 2.2GHz ) paired with Adreno 630 GPU and 8GB of RAM. The phone comes in two storage options – 128GB Internal storage or 256GB Internal storage, non-expandable.
For photography, the Vivo NEX sports a vertical dual rear camera setup consists of a 12-megapixel primary sensor (Sony IMX363 sensor) with a dual-tone LED flash,f/1.8 aperture, along with a 5-megapixel secondary sensor f/2.4 aperture. The cameras can perform several features include 4-Axis OIS, Slow Motion, Backlight HDR, Live Photo, Portrait Bokeh (— on the dual cameras), Panorama, Time Lapse, Face Beauty, AR Stickers, Filters.Coming to the star highlight of the phone; its front elevating camera. It houses an 8-megapixel pop-up front-facing camera that pop-ups while taking selfies and automatically hides when you close the camera app. To achieve this technology, Vivo used a fine precise micro-stepping motor, with independent IC drives and precision control algorithms to precisely control this process. According to Vivo, this mechanism of the front camera can survive accidental falls and pressure. Moreover, the sliding mechanism has been tested over 50,000 times for durability.
The phone runs Funtouch OS 4.0 based on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with an AI-powered Energy UI technology that automatically recognizes the cold and warm colors of wallpaper and it automatically adjusts the visual style of icons to give more beautiful viewing experience. It also comes with a Vivo’s own AI voice assistant called Jovi AI Assistant with a dedicated button to launch it.
The handset is fuelled by a huge 4,000 mAh battery with Quick charging support, which is claimed to have more long-lasting battery performance than ever before. It comes bundled with a 22.5W fast charging adapter.
For security options, it comes with both fingerprint scanner and face unlock. Another key highlight of the phone is its in-display fingerprint sensor, which is hidden below the edge-to-edge display and the Vivo says that the third-generation screen fingerprint technology, which is smaller, and more powerful offering 50% better accuracy and the unlocking speed is increased by 10% compared to the previous in-display fingerprint sensor in Vivo X20 plus UD and Vivo X21.
