Vivo is continuing to produce experimental smartphones under the company’s NEX lineup. After launching the world’s first smartphone with an elevating front-facing camera, the company is now working on its successor.
The upcoming smartphone, Vivo NEX 2, will come with dual screens and triple camera setup, confirmed by the official renders of the smartphone. The Chinese company has already announced that the Vivo Nex 2 will be launched on December 11th.
The Vivo NEX 2, featuring a dual display design, won’t be the first smartphone to feature such design as ZTE has already launched Nubia X having dual screens. However, it’ll be interesting to see Vivo’s approach to this design.
Further, the device will be featuring three camera sensors on the back along with an LED flash, enhancing the overall photography experience. The triple rear camera sensor will be used for taking selfies as well. The rear-facing display serves as a viewfinder while shooting selfie images. Since there are no front-facing camera sensors, we are expecting a higher screen-to-body ratio with extremely narrow bezels.
The Vivo NEX 2 carries a slogan “extraordinary dual screen breakthrough in the future” as the dual screen design is a major feature of the device. The phone is expected to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, making it the first dual-screen phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
While not much is known about the phone’s specifications, certifications reveal that the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 octa-core flagship chipset and will have up to 10GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
As for the software, the phone is claimed to offer a new OS experience. Vivo has developed a new version of its mobile operating system based on Android that has been tailored for dual-screen phones. It is also said to come with support for AI-based features.
The company has already started registrations for those who are interested in buying the Vivo NEX 2 smartphone. It appears that the phone will be up for pre-orders from 11th December to 6th January.
