On this year’s edition of MWC in Barcelona, VIVO shocked the world by bringing the world’s first concept smartphone called VIVO Apex having under display fingerprint scanner. VIVO is going to hold an event on 12th June in Shanghai, China. And they have confirmed that a new flagship smartphone device named as VIVO Nex will be launched on that event, in Shanghai. Rumors are that the VIVO Apex may be rebranded and launched as Vivo Nex.
A few days back on 26th May, a front panel of VIVO Nex got leaked online which shows that the device will have a full screen Notch-less and True Bezel-less display, while a dot is spotted on the bottom right side of the panel.
Vivo Nex is expected to come with Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC based on an advanced 10nm LPP processor of Kryo 385 architecture, CPU frequency of 2.8 GHz with Adreno 630 Cortex GPU powered by 8 GB of RAM.
This device may feature a 5.99 inch OLED full-screen display offering screen to body ratio more than 91 percent, a true Bezel-less display with COF technology. And It may run on Vivo’s Fun touch 4.0 OS based on Android 8.1 Oreo.
The key feature of this Vivo Nex is going to be the under display fingerprint scanner. So the lower half of the display will be integrated with an in screen fingerprint reader. Ambient and proximity sensors will also be embedded Under the display.
There would be an elevating front selfie camera at the top edge of this Vivo Nex. And it would take 0.8 sec to pop up like a periscope when needed and hide inside when not required.
The concept Apex phone has square edges but rumors are that VIVO is going to make some minor changes and VIVO Nex may get round shaped.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that the artificial intelligence technology will be applied to VIVO Nex and it is defined as “The Flagship of AI” by the company.
The price of this device may be set around CNY 4000 which is Rs. 42000 approximately.
All these specifications are not confirmed by the company so we will have to wait till 12th June for the official launch of this device and see what surprises VIVO has for us. But again, this is something coming that is going to be a new trendsetter in the world of smartphone industry for sure.
