Vivo NEX is an interesting flagship phone that takes mobile innovation to the next level at a very nominal price. Modeled on the popular 'Apex' concept phone, the Nex leaves out the controversial notch and introduces a retractable front camera instead.
Other features that were introduced by Vivo this time are in-display fingerprint sensor and new cooling system that, Vivo claims, will keep the phone’s processor from heating even during long operation sessions.
The phone encases a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clocked up to 2.8GHz, aided by 8GB of RAM. It runs on Android 8.1 Oreo-based Funtouch OS 4.0 and sports a 6.59-inch screen with full-HD+ (1080x2316) Super AMOLED 'Ultra FullView' display feature and 19.3:9 aspect ratio. The phone is fueled by a 4,000 mAh battery unit assisted by a 22.5W charger that enables fast charging.
Its front camera specifications include 8MP retractable camera with f/2.0 aperture, Portrait Bokeh, AR Stickers, and Face Beauty. A dual sensor camera combo of 12 MP + 5 MP with features such as f/1.8 aperture, 4-axis OIS, and dual-pixel tech for the superior camera and f/2.4 aperture. An LED fill light with two colour tones is placed below the dual rear camera.
Connectivity options cover Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, USB Type-C (with OTG capabilities), and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Several other highlights like an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, digital compass, proximity sensor, and a virtual gyroscope are also a part of this phone. The phone has dimensions of 162x77x7.98mm and weighs 199 grams.
Only the 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant of Vivo NEX has been made available in India. The storage is not expandable via microSD.
The Vivo NEX Price in India is Rs 44,990. It can be purchased from Vivo's online store or Amazon India. The phone will also be available at partner offline stores.
