We have been talking about him for several weeks and finally the Vivo NEX is official. The company is presenting it right now in China with great detail, so we can tell you all about its design and specification list. We can say it now: we are facing the most spectacular mobile of the moment. Vivo has managed to expose Apple, Huawei and even Samsung. All the companies that promise infinite screens on their devices go to the background with this Vivo NEX. Its screen ratio and features make it one of the best mobile phones of the moment, with very attractive details for every lover of technology.
We have been talking about its design for a while and the truth is that there are few news to comment on the renders and videos filtered by the company itself. It is the renewal of Vivo Apex, a mobile that was seen in the MWC, but that was not commercialized. Now this NEX is presented as a bet better manufactured, polishing all the details that did not convince in the first device.
The Vivo NEX is the mobile with the highest screen ratio in the market
Vivo has left the notch aside and presents us with a mobile phone with a screen that covers almost the entire front. We only see a small bevel at the bottom. Everything else is screen and we can see how the panel reaches the ends. Its screen has rounded corners quite pronounced and the truth is that its design is the best we can see at this time. It is a very compact mobile phone, since despite having a large screen, it hardly has bevels. No doubt remember the phones that we saw a few years ago in movies, where everything was screen.
It is the smartphone with the best screen ratio in the current market. It stands at 91% frontal, which means that only 9% of this front are frames. It may not seem incredible on paper, but the thing changes when we compare these figures with that of other high range launched this year by different manufacturers. None is close to that 91% ratio, we only see as the Essential Phone that silk in 84.9%, a figure that is still far from what I get with this terminal.
- Essential Phone – 84.9%
- Samsung Galaxy S9 – 83.6%
- Huawei P20 Pro – 82%
- iPhone X – 82.9%
You do not see the front camera anywhere and it’s normal. It is hidden inside the device and when we need it, a mechanism is activated to make it emerge from the top frame. This way you do not need to be at the bottom or take up space on the screen. It is the most ingenious solution of the moment to do without the notch, although this type of mechanism is more prone to suffer breakdowns with time.
Its back is made of glass and has a double camera. It is the most “normal” part of the device and meets the rest of the market in quality. Of course, we do not see a fingerprint sensor anywhere. Effectively, said component is housed under the screen and will be the only method of unlocking the terminal. By not having a fixed camera that is always active, facial recognition is discarded.
Official features of the Vivo NEX
Do not leave aside the features, as this Vivo NEX also comes well loaded with internal hardware. It is presented as one of the most powerful mobile phones on the market, including a really incredible RAM and storage. Vivo is one of the most important Chinese companies and this ensures the quality of its components, so we are facing one of the most recommended configurations in the current market.
- 6.01 inch screen in FullHD + resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor
- 6 or 8 GB of RAM
- 128 or 256 GB of storage
- 20 + 16 megapixel rear camera
- 24 megapixel front camera
- Metal and glass body
- Fingerprint sensor on screen
- USB Type-C
- 3.320 mAh battery
- Android 8.1 Oreo
Without a doubt it is one of the most complete mobile phones in the market, although it is a configuration that we also see in other mobile phones. The truly impressive thing about this mobile is its screen and design.
Price and availability
We reach one of the worst points for users who do not reside in China. The Vivo NEX will be available only in China. It is possible that it can be bought in import stores, but we will have to pay an extra price. It is not a cheap terminal, since it has been announced in the following versions with prices changed to euros. We leave you with the prices of its different versions:
- Version of 6 and 128 GB : 3898 yuan (516 euros to change)
- Version of 8 and 256 GB : 4998 yuan (662 euros to change)
