The Vivo NEX comes in two variants – the NEX S which has a Snapdragon 845 processor and an in-display fingerprint scanner and the NEX A which has a Snapdragon 710 processor and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. It appears Vivo is working on a NEX A variant with an in-display fingerprint scanner based on recent reports.

A device which is believed to be a Vivo NEX A with an in-display fingerprint scanner has gotten its 3C certification. The document shows the device’s name as Vivo NEX UD A. If you are familiar with Vivo devices, then you should know UD is short for “Under Display” which leads us to believe this is the NEX A with an in-display fingerprint scanner.


Vivo is not new to releasing two variants of the same phone whose only distinguishing feature is the position of the fingerprint scanner. The Vivo X20 Plus and the Vivo X20 Plus UD is an example.

Apart from the position of the fingerprint sensor, the Vivo NEX A UD should share the same specs as its sibling. So it should launch with a 6.59” Super AMOLED display, a Snapdragon 710 chipset, 12MP + 5MP dual rear cameras and an 8MP front-facing camera that pops-up from the middle frame.

The battery capacity should remain 4,000mAh with support for fast charging via a USB Type-C port. What will be a surprise is if it launches with Android 9 Pie but Android 8.1 Oreo is likely what we’ll get. What we are sure will change is the price tag as the addition of an in-display will result in a higher price.
