The NEX series in the Vivo lineup is a demonstration of innovation and an attempt to show technological superiority. So, in the lineup, there were smartphones with a retractable front camera, an extremely curved display and two screens. The last representative of this family was released in March 2020 and is still waiting for its update.
It seems that the pause was forced due to the lack of some chips that would correspond to the spirit of the series itself. But late last year, the head of Vivo confirmed that a successor would come in the first half of 2022. Moreover, the company intends to release new items within the NEX series every year.
Netizens have repeatedly reported that this year we will see the Vivo NEX 5, which will offer a huge 7-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz. And today we can look at this upcoming device. The smartphone was visualized, and based on patents and rumors. And at the same time, they reported the characteristics that Vivo NEX 5 will be endowed with.
The front panel of the smartphone is decorated quite modestly. Yes, it has a waterfall display, but at the same time, they abandoned the under-screen camera; which would be a logical step to offer. But the back is a little more interesting. Vivo NEX 5 offers a round main camera block; which is distinguished by an insert in the manner of a number of POCO devices.

According to the sources, the flagship will offer a 10-bit LTPO panel, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, 8/12 GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256/512 GB of UFS 3.1 memory. The Vivo NEX 5 will ship with a 5,000mAh battery and offer 80W fast charging. The smartphone will have an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, an NFC module, IP68 water protection, an infrared port, a linear vibration motor and a quadruple rear camera with Zeiss optics.
Since there have been many leaks and rumors floating on the internet about the Vivo NEX 5 for quite some time now, all the credit goes to Vivo’s Executive Vice President Hu Baishan. In August 2021 during a media attraction, Vivo Executive Vice President Hu Baishan confirmed that Vivo next Vivo Nex Series phone coming out in H1 2022. In that interaction, Hu Baishan confirmed that “from next year’s NEX series phone will launch every year”. There were rumors that “the next phone of Vivo NEX will launch in the first half of 2022”; and it’s confirmed but he did not specify whether it will be Vivo Nex 4 or Vivo Nex 5; although there are rumors that the next NEX series phone will be called Vivo NEX 5.
