Vivo NEX, NEX S: The rivals of Oppo Find X

Share

There's no cutout at the top, yet its bezels are still tantalizingly thin.

There is a catch; the phone will only be sold in China.

The Vivo Nex has an all-screen design with no notch, no speaker grille, and a selfie camera that pops up from inside the phone to take your picture.

Spain offers to take in migrant ship amid Italy-Malta stand-off
The Italian government would adopt the same position with the Sea Watch 3 as it did with the Aquarius , Salvini said. Italy claimed that Malta should accept the Aquarius because Malta was the safest, closest port to the ship.

The Vivo NEX carries a pricing of 3,898 Yuan (Rs. 41,200). We are calling it an "almost" bezel-less display as the phone does feature bezels on all sides. "It sports a 6.59" full-HD+ (1080×2316 pixels) Super AMOLED 19.3:9 display with 91.24 percent screen-to-body ratio and DCI-P3 color gamut. Screen density is a relatively low 338 ppi, but thanks to the large screen, it shouldn't be a huge issue. Vivo has managed to do that by adding a sliding front-facing camera module and replacing the earpiece with Cantilever Piezoelectric earpiece, same as the Xiaomi Mi Mix. The camera also supports DCI-P3 colour gamut. With Jovi, users can now access apps and features with their voice.

The pop-up camera isn't the only cool trick the Vivo Nex is capable of. The company has also added an in-display fingerprint sensor to the NEX S but NEX A comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. For receiving calls it has a Screen SoundCasting technology. In any case, it should be an improvement over the company's previous devices which sported in-display fingerprint scanners. The more premium model is called NEX S and offers flagship internals and several unique features. There is also a fingerprint scanner at the back.

The world's first bezel-less smartphone has arrived, and it comes from Chinese manufacturer VIVO.

As for the rest of the specs, the Vivo NEX has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, an Adreno 630 graphics processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery and a (slightly disappointing) dual 12/5-megapixel camera on the back. These phones support Dual SIM but do not have microSD card slot and hence internal storage can not be extended further.

Big hurdles for bold push to split California into 3 states
California , a narrow, densely populated stretch of coastal counties, starting from Los Angeles and stretching north to Monterey. Southern California would include much of our part of the Central Valley, from Madera County down to San Diego County.

Missing from Vivo's details are the location of other sensors, like the light sensor that dims the display when you're in a dark environment, or turns the display off when you put the phone to your ears. The phone's main 12-megapixel camera comes with an f/1.8 aperture lens, Dual Pixel sensor and 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Nevertheless, the press release states that it's mainly used for taking better photos, with features like AI Scene Recognition, AI HDR, AI Filters and AI Photo Composition. If you can get past these issues, Funtouch is definitely a functional and feature-rich OS. Vivo's sound assistant, Jovi, also got new powerful voice commands, image identification, and a new dedicated button. It's not clear if Jovi will be made available out of China. Both smartphones will go in sale starting June 23 in Black and Red colour options, though the top-end 8GB RAM and 256GB storage variant will only be available in Black colour option. It is not clear whether Jovi will be introduced in global markets also.
