The long-rumored Vivo NEX successor has finally hit the store shelves. Contrary to previously surfaced reports that suggested it will come bearing the NEX 2 moniker, the new Vivo-branded phone is dubbed Nex Dual Display Edition.
The reason behind the Chinese technology company giving its new phone that name is quite simple to understand. The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition has two displays, one placed at the back and the other located on the front. However, it does not bear a striking resemblance to Yotaphone or the Meizu Pro 7.
The other unique selling point includes the 3D TOF stereo camera that the phone houses. Unlike its well-received precursor, the Vivo NEX, this Dual Display Edition phone does not feature a pop-up camera. Apparently, Vivo has dumped that design style or is gearing up to launch another model with the pop-up camera design next year.
The phone packs a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, under the hood. You can get your hands on the blue and purple color versions of the Nex Dual Display Edition on Giztop. The device ships with 10GB of RAM and offers a hearty 128GB of onboard storage for you to save your favorite content. Both the aforesaid color versions will set you back $899 on Giztop.
The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition sports a mammoth 6.39-inch Super AMOLED bezel-less display with a screen resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. According to Vivo, the phone will have a screen ratio of 91.63 percent.
On the photography front, the Dual Display Edition phone houses a 12.0MP+2.0MP and time-of-flight (TOF) 3D triple camera setup. The 2.0MP snapper will be used for low-light shots, while the TOF camera will be used for facial recognition and measuring distance and capturing great selfies. The Lunar Ring houses the dual camera sensors and there are two extra soft LED lights included on the Lunar Ring that activates at the time of taking selfies.
Moreover, the phone runs Funtouch OS 4.5 based Android 9.0 Pie operating system and is backed by a robust 3500mAh battery that supports the 10V/2.25A fast charging feature. There’s a fifth-gen in-screen fingerprint scanner that can unlock the phone in 0.29 second.
