Just as the Vivo V9 had popped on Vivo India’s online shop before its official announcement, the upcoming Vivo NEX flagship phone had also momentarily appeared on the Chinese edition of Vivo’s website. The Vivo NEX and NEX S were found listed on the official website along with their entire specifications. As expected, those listings have been taken down, but their screenshots are available on SlashLeaks.
The Vivo NEX was listed with a pricing of 9,999 Yuan (~$1,560). The smartphone is unlikely to carry such a high pricing. It is speculated that the Vivo NEX variants could be priced around $800 to $1,000.
Vivo NEX S Specifications
As it can be seen in the listing, the Vivo NEX S will be coming in red colored rear and a black front. The handset features 8 GB of RAM and an internal storage of 128 GB. It is driven by the Snapdragon 845 chipset. The device is preinstalled with Android 8.1 Oreo with a layer of FunTouch OS on its top.
The Vivo NEX S has a massive display of 6.59 inches that supports 2,316 x 1080 pixels. The exact screen-to-body ratio was not mentioned on the official listing. Considering the fact that the display is surrounded by super-slim bezel and a thin-sized bottom bezel, the Vivo NEX S is likely to deliver a screen-to-body ratio of around 91 percent. The smartphone measures 162 x 77 x 7.98mm and it includes a 4,000mAh battery.
The Vivo NEX S has a front-facing popup camera of 8-megapixel. The rear side features a vertical dual camera setup that comprises of 12-megapixel primary sensor and 5-megapixel secondary sensor. Some of the connectivity features of the Vivo NEX S smartphone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, USB 2.0 and USB OTG. This model is equipped with an under-display fingerprint reader. Probably, it features the half-screen fingerprint scanner that was available on the Vivo APEX concept phone.
Vivo NEX Specifications
The Vivo NEX is a low powered version of the NEX S as it is fueled by Snapdragon 710 chipset and 6 GB of RAM. Also, another striking difference is that it does not feature an under-screen fingerprint scanner. The rear side of the phone is fitted with a squarish fingerprint reader. This model also features a native storage of 128 GB.
The Vivo NEX measures 162 x 77 x 9.8mm and it also features the huge 6.59-inch display that produces FHD+ resolution of 2316 x 1080 pixels. It is packed with a 4,000mAh battery. The handset features the same dual camera setup, selfie camera and connectivity features that are available on the Vivo NEX S phone.
Another variant dubbed as Vivo NEX A was spotted alongside Vivo NEX and NEX S in the recent past. However, there is no accurate information available on its specifications. The Vivo NEX is slated to go official on June 12.
