Eleven days after its official announcement event, Vivo NEX has finally hit the shelves. For now, the launch is limited to the Chinese market: the handset has hit the shelves for the first time on June 23 and now we finally know its price. As we know since the official announcement, the handset has been launched in three variants: there are a NEX A variant and two configurations of the NEX S version. The first one carries a price tag of 3898 Yuan which roughly translates into $599. The NEX S in the configuration with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage costs 4498 Yuan (roughly $690), while the most expensive one with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB ROM costs 5998 Yuan (about $769).

Note that Vivo NEX A is a lower-end version of the flagship as it features an octa-core Snapdragon 710 chipset by Qualcomm running at a max frequency of 2.2 GHz, while the other two variants pack an octa-core Snapdragon 845 flagship-level chipset with a max frequency of 2.8 GHz. The memory configurations are different as well: the NEX A is equipped with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.

Going ahead the hardware side, each variant of the Vivo NEX has a glass back and an aluminum frame, as well as a full borderless display with a screen-to-body ratio superior to 91 percent. The device has an in-display fingerprint reader and a wide 6.59-inch screen with the Super AMOLED technology and a Full HD+ resolution of 2316 x 1080 pixels. The camera setup is composed of two sensors with 12 and 5 MP resolutions, respectively. Given that the display covers almost the whole front panel, the company has implemented a motorized pop-up front camera with an 8 MP resolution.
