Earlier this month, Vivo launched its two new smartphones — Vivo NEX S and NEX A. Now, the company is all set to launch Vivo NEX series smartphone in the Indian market on July 19.
Vivo has now started sending out media invites for the 19th July launch event in India where the company will launch Vivo NEX series smartphone. While the invite makes it clear that the company will be debuting a NEX series smartphone, it’s still not clear if both smartphones will be launched or only the more affordable NEX A will come to India.
One of the highlights of the smartphone is that it comes with an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper automatically rises and hides on opening and closing camera app, and also makes a sound to notify the user. This is done using micro-stepping motors with independent drive ICs and precision control algorithms.
The device features a third-generation in-display fingerprint scanning technology that improves the screen unlock time by 10 percent and increases the overall experience of phone unlocking. On the back side, there’s a dual camera setup which consists of 12-megapixel sensors, primary being a Sony IMX363 sensor with 1.4μm pixels, f/1.8 aperture, and four-axis optical image stabilization and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture.
The smartphone comes with a 6.59-inch Super AMOLED Ultra FullView “Zero Screen” Display with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24 percent and 2316 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. All the sensors on the device are hidden under the display and instead of an earpiece, the phone comes with a Screen SoundCasting Technology.
The Vivo NEX S is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 845 processor along with Adreno 630 GPU. It packs 4GB RAM and comes in two internal storage options — 128GB and 256GB. On the other hand, the Vivo NEX A comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC and packs 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
It comes equipped with the company’s own personal voice assistant — Jovi, which works on artificial intelligence technology. The phone also has Vivo Game Engine, which is made in partnership with Tencent Games. It aims to provide an immersive gaming experience based on software and hardware optimization.
Connectivity options on the devices include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz / 5GHz) 2×2 MIMO, Bluetooth 5 LE, GPS + GLONASS, and USB Type-C. The phone runs on Android Oreo operating system out of the box with Vivo’s newly designed custom user interface Energy UI. The device drives power from a 4,000mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support.
