Vivo is bringing its latest sensation, the Vivo Nex S flagship smartphone to the Indian market on July 19. Unveiled earlier this month, the Vivo Nex S is a futuristic smartphone with a pop-up front-facing camera. Thanks to the motorised camera, Vivo achieved over 90% screen-to-body ratio on the Nex S. And to be noted, India is the second market where Vivo is launching the handset. Meanwhile, Oppo is launching the Oppo Find X flagship smartphone in India on July 12. The Oppo Find X and Vivo Nex S, both are futuristic smartphones with almost no bezels on the front. Vivo also launched a toned-down version, dubbed as Vivo Nex A with Snapdragon 710 SoC, but it seems like that version is not coming to India, after all.
The Vivo Nex S sports a massive 6.59-inch display with a resolution of 1080 x 2316 pixels. It’s a Super AMOLED panel, and thankfully, there’s no notch on top of the display. The smartphone’s powered by the Snapdragon 845 chipset, mated with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. There’s another variant dubbed as Vivo Nex A, which comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform. It comes with 4GB/6GB of RAM.
The fingerprint scanner on this device is placed inside the display (the Nex A has a rear-mounted one), and it will be the second smartphone from Vivo to sport an in-display fingerprint scanner in India. The interesting aspect of the Vivo Nex S is the pop-up selfie camera. The selfie camera on the smartphone is hidden inside, and it pops out whenever the selfie camera function gets triggered.
The smartphone rocks dual cameras on the back- a 12MP f/1.8 primary shooter is paired with a 5MP secondary depth sensor. Up front, Vivo has added an 8MP shooter, which can be used to capture selfies and make video calls. The Vivo Nex S is backed by a 4000mAh battery and runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based FunTouch OS out of the box. Pricing and other details of the smartphone are unknown at the moment.
