On June 12, Vivo is set to launch in China Nex and Nex S. Both will use ultrasonic tech for proximity sensing and a piezoelectric ceramic system for the earpiece which made Mi Mix and Mi Mix 2 stand out from the crowd. Design-wise, the phones will sport the almost invisible bezels on three sides, with a thicker one at the bottom.
Another thing you’ll be glad to notice is that Vivo is about to push their in-display fingerprint sensor on the market yet again, Nex S featuring it. On the standard Nex you’ll find it on the rear of the device.
Both phones will have a 6.59-inch full HD+ IPS LCD display with a ratio of 19:9 and run Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.0 on top.
What’s under the hood? The standard Nex will be powered by a Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6Gb of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. However, the S version will boast a Snapdragon 845 chip with a huge 8GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage.
The differences end here. Whether you opt for a classic Nex or a S(pecial) Nex model , you’ll get to test a dual camera of 12MP +5MP and LED flash and take selfies with an 8MP pop-up cam.
Vivo has equipped both handsets with 4,000mAh battery cells with Quick Charge support and 3.5mm audio jacks.
At launch, Vivo Nex will cost around CNY 3,798, while Nex S will go for CNY 4,498.
Of course, we’re expecting to see them up close at the end of the month at MWC Shanghai (27-29 June)!
