Vivo has managed to become one of the best Chinese companies, even though it was only established in China. Now, Vivo’s focus is no longer limited to China. The BBK-owned hi-tech giant has announced that its latest flagship Vivo NEX will soon hit the global market. The handset will initially come in five selected markets: Russia, India, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and this will happen within the end of July. The news comes from an official press release so there is not any doubt about the global launch.
Vivo NEX has been released in two variants: NEX S and NEX A, embracing two different price ranges. The first version ranges from CNY 4498 to 4998 in China, which roughly translates into €580 and €640, while the second version costs €510. Both the variants are concept phones made real, with a whopping 91 percent screen-to-body ratio and a motorized pop-up front camera for selfies. They also sport an in-display fingerprint reader. The display has a size of 6.59 inches, the Super AMOLED technology and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2316 pixels, without notch.
The design is composed of a glass back and an aluminum frame just like most of the premium flagship phones. Under the hood of the Vivo NEX S, there is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset (an octa-core running at a max frequency of 2.8 GHz) supported by 8 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of internal storage depending on the chosen configuration. The NEX A instead sports an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC with a 2.2 GHz clock frequency, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage. The main camera department is a dual setup with 12 and 5 MP resolutions, while the secondary one has an 8 MP resolution. Both the variants have a big 4000 mAh battery.
