Not too long ago, vivo officially announced its latest – and arguably most impressive flagship yet – smartphone: the vivo Nex. Based on the Chinese company’s concept Apex phone, the Nex is a pretty impressive device with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, among other things.
Unlike Xiaomi’s implementation with the Mi Mix phones – their front-facing cameras are placed on the bottom chin – vivo took a different approach with the Nex: it sports a pop-up selfie camera. It’s an 8MP shooter with f/2.0 aperture, and it’s certainly a solution to the “notch problem” most phones have now.
Aside from that, the Nex also features an in-screen fingerprint sensor, much like the vivo X21. Speaking of which, this is also one of the most “bezel-free” smartphones right now with a 6.59-inch Full HD+ OLED display, although it still has a slight chin at the bottom of the phone.
Other specifications of the Nex include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired with 8GB of RAM, 256GB of internal storage, a generous 4,000mAh battery, as well as a 12MP + 5MP dual-camera system on the back. Interestingly, there’s also a more affordable variant of the phone with a Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.
The vivo Nex is currently only available in China, and it’s priced at up to 4,998 Chinese yuan, which comes up to about RM3,095. Not a bad price tag for a flagship of this calibre, though the Nex may not be launched outside of China.
