Vivo NEX and its elevating camera are now official

Vivo NEX and its elevating camera are now official Vivo NEX is official with super-thin bezels, pop-up front camera and top-end specs

The Nex comes in a single 6GB RAM and 128GB of internal storage, while the Nex Ultimate comes with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB/256GB of internal storage.

Vivo has been the frontrunner this year in innovating new technologies. Like so many other groundbreaking Chinese phones, the Nex line will only be available in China (for now, anyway) later this month and nearly certainly won't make it to our shores, as Vivo doesn't import its wares to the U.S.

The Vivo Nes S and Nex A pack different chipsets. Android 8.1 Oreo comes pre-installed on the Vivo NEX, while Vivo's Funtouch OS 4.0 is included on top of Google's operating system.

Another highlight of Tuesday's launch involves Jovi, Vivo's own personal voice assistant which works on artificial intelligence technology.

Vivo even embedded a fingerprint sensor supplied by Goodix into the display.

It's worth noting we don't now have any word on whether the Vivo Nex will be coming to other countries around the world. However, both phones come with the elevating or pop-up selfie camera, and thanks to this, both phones have a 91.24 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Kim understands that the process must happen "quickly", Pompeo said , warning there will be no sanctions relief until after "complete denuclearisation ".

Both the devices are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon processors but NEX S is based on Snapdragon 845 64-bit 10nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 630 GPU while NEX A based on Octa-Core Snapdragon 710 10nm Mobile Platform with Adreno 616 GPU. That all-screen design wouldn't have been completely possible if Vivo didn't have the guts to stick the 8 megapixel front camera in a retracting mechanism. The device also uses an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Additionally, the Vivo NEX uses an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is not the first the company has dabbed on with the futuristic technology: it's little-known X20UD and X21 devices already boasted in-display fingerprint scanners. This ensures users capture the ideal shot of any subject, in any scenario, regardless of skill level.

Vivo is touting the AI capabilities of the NEX, with the phone offering AI-assisted scene recognition, HDR, filters, and photo composition. The camera also supports DCI-P3 colour gamut.

The Vivo NEX sports a regular camera setup on the back, while the "Elevating Camera" is tucked away on the inside of the phone, and it serves as the device's front-facing shooter as soon as you switch modes inside the camera app. The handset includes a dedicated button for activating Jovi Intelligent Voice Assistant.

It's not clear whether the Vivo Nex will be released internationally. You'd think the main advantage here is to inch the screen closer to the bezel, but it's not: the firm says it opted for Screen SoundCasting because it delivers much clearer audio.
