Yesterday, we showed you a render of the next device touted to feature a display nearly free from bezels. That would be the Vivo NEX
. This is the release name for the Vivo Apex concept phone that Vivo decided to put into mass-production after it received widespread interest
. The Vivo NEX
render revealed that the device will come to market with very thin side and top bezels, and a minimal bezel at bottom. A new press image of the Vivo NEX
was disseminated via tweet today by tipster Ice Universe, and the image is just as impressive as the render is. Today's leak also reveals that the phone will feature a fingerprint scanner embedded in the display. Three different versions of the phone are expected, the Vivo NEX, Vivo NEX A and the Vivo NEX S.
The Vivo NEX models are rumored to be equipped with a 6.6-inch display; the premium model is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform and features 8GB of RAM along with 256GB of native storage. The other two variants will reportedly have the Snapdragon 710 Mobile Platform under their respective hoods, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A 4000mAh battery supposedly will be charged with keeping the power on. And at least one of the phones will have a retractable front camera, according to the source. We expect to see Android 8.1
Oreo pre-installed on all three handsets.
Thanks to a Geekbench benchmark test, we now can say that the Vivo NEX S will be the premium model and it is expected to be priced at a wallet-emptying $1,100. One of the remaining models (either the NEX or the NEX A) is said to carry a $780 price tag.
The Vivo NEX S will be the premium model in the series and is powered by the Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform
