The Vivo Nex is going to be unveiled in just a few hours and a real life image has been leaked. It confirms all the reported speculations and rumors and throws a light on how navigation around the UI on the bezel-less smartphone will be taken care of.
The phone hardly has literally no bezels if you don’t count the chin. The physical fingerprint scanner has been placed on the back, indicating that this is indeed the Vivo Nex. The front camera no more rests on the front, instead it pops out of the midframe. This allowed Vivo to shave off all the bezel up top and some on the bottom too. Other than the volume and power buttons, there’s a third button that might be for opening up the Assistant on the phone although it has not been confirmed.
Talking about the UI, there are three thin lines on the bottom of the screen, reminding us slightly of the one-button navigation that Motorola implemented in the Moto Z3 Play. In this case, instead of one, there’s three lines, for back, home and recent apps. Rest of the UI sits snugly in the bezel-less display.
The Vivo Nex is expected to sport the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. It is expected to feature a 6.59-inch display. It’s sibling, the Vivo Nex S will have mightier internals in the same form factor; Snapdragon 845 coupled with 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage. According to the latest report, the expected price of the Nex S is 4498 Yuan ($702) and Nex is 3798 Yuan ($592).
