Vivo NEX has just been launched with a number of new and impressive features that make it become one of the most remarkable smartphones in 2018. Vivo NEX blows a wind of change in a smartphone industry that is lacking innovation. Not caring about specs, Vivo offers other Android phone manufacturers a roadmap of sorts based on their next-gen phones.
The Vivo NEX’s story is even beyond its impressive hardware specs since it doesn’t come with a me-too design. It is a real production model of the Vivo APEX concept pattern that was previously shown off at the MWC earlier this year in Barcelona. It’s confident to say the Vivo NEX is different from most of 2018 Android phones currently in the market.
True Full-Screen Display
The NEX features a ‘true’ full-screen display, and thankfully, we don’t see the appearance of the notch entirely unlike other 2018 phones, helping it highlighted from the crowd. According to Vivo, there were several ‘industry-first’ technologies implemented with an aim of maximizing the screen on the NEX. That’s why it offers up to an impressive 91.2% screen-to-body ratio.
Retractable Front Camera
Another reason explaining why the Vivo NEX gets rid of the notch is a retractable front-facing camera, and it might be the first smartphone coming with this feature. It features an 8MP snapper that can pop up just be a press of a button, and it can be tucked away once you have completed the job. According to the Chinese manufacturer, they equipped their device a micro-drive system accompanying with the independent drive ICs to quickly lift the camera module.
In-display Fingerprint Reader
Although Vivo NEX isn’t the first smartphone to have this technology, as its brother, Vivo X21 UD has been already offered this feature, Vivo said that the hardware was improved on their latest NEX. Vivo said that they equipped a 3rd-generation in-display fingerprint sensor for their NEX, which has a 50% better accuracy, as well as a larger detection area, and especially the unlock speed is10% faster than fingerprint scanner on Vivo X21 UD model.
Similar to original Xiaomi Mi Mix, the Vivo NEX also removes the standard earpiece. Instead, the Chinese company incorporated what the company, called a ‘Screen SoundCasting Technology’. It is simply a piezoelectric speaker, giving users stronger bass and smoother treble than other physical speakers, according to Vivo.
Jovi Voice Assistant
Vivo also did not forget to integrate some great features such as AI-assisted scene recognition, HDR, filters, as well as photo composition into their NEX. The premium models will ship with a new Jovi voice assistant as well as, which can open apps like Samsung’s Bixby assistant and identify objects like Google Lens.
The NEX is estimated to stand apart from the similarity of the crowd, makes it specific without sacrificing too much. How about you? What do you think about the Vivo NEX? Whether it will get success and create a new trend for smartphones, let’s know in the comment below.
