The Vivo NEX is shaping up to be what the Lenovo Z5 wasn't
According to a newly-leaked render, the Vivo NEX could become one of the best efforts on the market when it comes to bezel-less designs. After all, not only does the smartphone boast extremely thin side bezels, but these are also continued around the top of the display. This means absolutely no notch. Now, it’s still worth pointing out that a small chin is still present, but it’s fair to say that it certainly isn’t a large one. In addition to all of this, in a bid to avoid any weird selfie camera placements, the Vivo NEX takes cues from the Vivo Apex concept that was presented at CES 2018 by including a pop-up camera on the top of the smartphone.
On the internal side of things, the flagship NEX isn’t lacking either according to leaks, with the premium variant sporting a Snapdragon 845 processor along with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Alternatively, it appears Vivo will be offering a slightly cheaper version with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 710, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. In any case, however, both are expected to ship with a 6.6-inch display that includes a fingerprint scanner underneath. Also, a large 4,000mAh battery pack and a dual-camera setup are also said to have been added to the mix.
Currently, the Vivo NEX series is set to be unveiled in China on June 12, with pricing expected to be pretty high. Specifically, the Snapdragon 845 variant is set to start at $1,100, while the Snapdragon 710 model will set consumers back $780. Presently, though, it’s unclear if Vivo has any plans to launch the smartphone outside of China.
