Vivo Nex features, specifications
Vivo Nex features a 6.59-inch, full HD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2316x1080 pixels and a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24%. The phone is powered by the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, which also powers the OnePlus 6, and is paired with 8GB of RAM. Available with storage variants of 128GB and 256GB, the Vivo smartphone will be fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charging. On the software side, the phone runs on Android Oreo 8.1 with Vivo’s Funtouch OS 4 running on top. The Nex is manufactured in Vivo’s smartphone facility in Greater Noida.
What’s so special in Vivo Nex’s camera
The fascinating pop-up camera mechanism houses only a front facing 8MP selfie camera, unlike the Oppo Find X in which both the front and the rear facing cameras are housed in the motorised slider. The dual rear camera on the Vivo Nex has a 12MP+5MP configuration and comes with 4-axis Optical Image Stabilisation. Other camera features include f/1.8 aperture, AI scene detection for white balance correction, AI portrait framing that assists you in placing your subject in the frame, AI-HDR which helps in bringing out highlights and enhancing the backlight of a subject, P3 Colour Gamut for better colour reproduction. The extreme measure of going with a motorised housing was taken to get rid of the notch on top of the phones and expand the screen further to the edges.
Vivo Nex’s price
The phone is priced at ₹44,990 and will be available for pre-order till July 25 exclusively through Amazon India and vivo.com. Recently Vivo offered an Amazon Pay cashback of ₹1,000 on the phone during the Prime Day sale that concluded on July 18. Those who claimed the cashback will get the refund credited to their Amazon Pay balance on or before August 15.
