Vivo NEX is what you wanted the iPhone X to be

VivoNex

The device is said to be set for a June 12-today-launch, but most of its details have already surfaced. The motorized action makes it one of the most futuristic implementations yet. We remember that Vivo X20 with UD which was already followed-up by the X21 UD with 19:9 aspect ratio. According to images released by Vivo on its website, the pop-up camera will sit on the top left of the display. We've been looking forward to a 100% screen-to-body ratio but we know it's impossible to achieve at this point.

In February, Chinese smartphone maker Vivo invited me into its Mobile World Congress booth in Barcelona to show me the Apex, a concept phone that was essentially all screen on the front. The Vivo NEX does not feature a notch screen, because of which it manages to produce a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24 percent. The NEX and NEX Ultimate phones can be availed in colors like Diamond Black and Ruby Red. The design is cutting-edge and technologies offer impressive performance.

"The launch of NEX finally brings an end to the industry's pursuit of a true bezel-less device".

As far as the build itself is concerned, the NEX isn't too dissimilar from what we've seen from other manufacturers.

Is the Vivo NEX the first of a new breed of truly bezel-less smartphones?

But what about the front-facing camera, proximity sensors, and earpiece? Other local manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei are also using the in-display fingerprint scanning technology on their latest high-end devices, but we are yet to see it present on a widely-available device, even moreso on one that could be bought in the USA of A.

Frenchman Zinedine Zidane stepped down two weeks ago, days after leading Real to a third consecutive Champions League title. Last month, Lopetegui agreed to a contract extension through 2020.

Additionally, the Vivo NEX uses an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is not the first the company has dabbed on with the futuristic technology: it's little-known X20UD and X21 devices already boasted in-display fingerprint scanners. This new tech turns the screen into a speaker.

Speaking of bezels, the top bezel is just 2.16 mm thick, with the bottom bezel coming in at 5.08 mm and the side bezels at 1.71 mm. The company claims that the Screen SoundCasting Technology should deliver better-sounding bass and softer treble. Reduced bezels are also possible with the 3rd-gen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology that promises speed and accuracy.

Oh, I nearly forgot an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The back of the phone gets more conventional.

The phone has been launched in two versions - Vivo Nex S with Snapdragon 845 SoC and an affordable Vivo Nex A with Snapdragon 710. Vivo calls it Jovi and whatever Bixby can do, Jovi can as well. It's the OEM's very own smart assistant that lets you call out voice commands.
