Beijing: Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has confirmed that its upcoming smartphone NEX 3 5G would be launched in China in September.
The smartphone has been in talks for a few months and the details surrounding the smartphone have started taking shape.
Vivo will most likely solder in a 5G modem in the device, a GSMArena report has suggested. The smartphone will be powered by Qualcomm's flagship-grade Snapdragon 855 SoC that will be accompanied by the Qualcomm X50 5G modem, GSMArena said in the report on Monday.
The device is also expected to bear the fruits of Vivo's extensive research in charging technology. It is expected to come with the 44W fast charger, although its much touted 120W "Super FlashCharge" charger that can charge a 4,000mAh battery in as little as 13 minutes might not be out of bounds. This is because Vivo NEX has always been the smartphone to come with the company's latest innovations.
Further, the smartphone is expected to be sport a 64MP primary camera sensor at the back, that'll lead the triple camera setup. This sensor will also be found within the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Realme XT that is set to launch soon.
The company has also confirmed that the NEX 3 would have a 'Waterfall display', Vivo's name for a display with curved edges, and also a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
The company has recently pumped in a significant investment in India to the tune of ₹3,500 crore. The renewed push by Vivo has come at a time when companies in key sectors such as automobiles, consumer durables and fast moving consumer goods are battling a slowdown in sales.
