Vivo showed a dual-screen smartphone, but without a front camera (9 photos)


Ten months after vivopresented at the Mobile World Congress a conceptual device called Apex, the line-up received a sequel, which has already abandoned the original concept of a pop-up camera for another radical design in the Vivo NEX smartphone. Mobile device Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition is equipped with a display and the front and rear. And just like the recently released Nubia X, the second screen exists solely as a means of avoiding a cutout on the front side of the device for a selfie camera.

Despite this idea, Nubia-enabled ZTEexceeded the vivo, but the Nex Dual Display Edition is good in a number of other functions. For example, a newbie will be able to launch Google applications (Nubia X will not), because the smartphone is designed for markets outside of China. It also feels a little better due to its curved edges and thinner frames around the main 6.3-inch screen. And unlike the Nubia X, both the front and rear screens of the Nex Dual Display Edition are high resolution OLED panels (1080 x 2340 pixels for the main and 1080 x 1920 pixels for an additional 5.5 inches).

The Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition also hassystem with three main cameras. Sony IMX363 12 megapixel main lens with f / 1.79 aperture and an additional 2 megapixel depth sensor plus a third TOF 3D camera for 3D modeling and unlocking the device in the face. Vivo claims that its face scanning system is “better than Apple’s.” Around the triple camera, there are 16 LEDs for selfie and light effects, for example, when playing music or displaying various incoming notifications, there is a traditional LED flash. There is no front camera in the device.

The new Nex also comes with Android 9.0 out of the box, albeit with a Vivo FunTouch shell. And since Chinese brands constantly fill smartphones with a variety of functions, there is 10 GB of RAM and 128 GB on the built-in flash drive without the possibility of expansion. The heart of the device has become the flagship 8-core Snapdragon 845 processor. Unlike Xiaomi, which offers 10 GB of RAM only in the premium version of Mi Mix 3, the Nex Dual Display Edition comes with the same amount of memory as standard.


The smartphone has a relatively small battery.3500 mAh capacity, but it supports fast charging 10 V / 2.25 A. The mobile device has: Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2.4 + 5 GHz) 2x2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5 LE, Dual 4G VoLTE, A-GPS + GLONASS + Beidou, Asahi Kasei Microdevices 32-bit AK4377A audio chip and USB Type-C 3.0 port. To unlock the fingerprint has a built-in sensor in the main display.


The novelty will go on sale December 29 for $ 726.
