Display fingerprint and 91% screen-to-body ratio

The most bezel-less phone in the world goes official Manufacturers take notes from the Vivo NEX

The phone sports a massive 6.59-inch FHD+ OLED Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2316*1080 pixels and aspect ratio of 19.3:9.

For now, the Vivo NEX is limited to the Chinese market, where the phone will go on sale for the equivalent of $610. The secondary on both the devices is 5MP with f/2.4 aperture.

Because of the narrow bezels surrounding the display, Vivo had to come up with a unique solution for the front-facing camera.

Surfaced from the forums of Weibo, the NEX device actually looks very similar to the X21 especially the back design with the glass back, the dual rear camera and LED flashlight is also in the same position, it can be noted that the NEX has a rear fingerprint sensor so we won't be expecting an in-display fingerprint scanner at the front. Other local manufacturers like Xiaomi and Huawei are also using the in-display fingerprint scanning technology on their latest high-end devices, but we are yet to see it present on a widely-available device, even moreso on one that could be bought in the U.S. of A.

The most bezel-less phone in the world goes official Manufacturers take notes from the Vivo NEX

In the meantime, what are your thoughts on the Vivo NEX? Vivo says it mounted an improved version on the Nex, featuring a larger recognition area, a 30 percent lower false recognition rate, and a 10 percent higher unlock speed. For one, the 8MP f/2.0 front camera is placed onto an elevating mechanism that pops up when needed; sounds reverbates through the screen itself thanks to Vivo's so-called Screen SoundCasting Technology, which is most probably utilizing a piezoelectric technology at its core, similarly to what Xiaomi did with the first Mi Mix but later backtracked. The Vivo Nex takes things up a notch and features a spec sheet that is worthy of its futuristic features. The Vivo Nex is a mid-range smartphone powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset, whereas the Vivo Nex Ultimate gets the more powerful Snapdragon 845 chipset. There's no microSD card slot inside the smartphone.

The hardware enables features like Portrait Mode (adjustable depth of field effect), Live Photos, Beauty mode, AI HDR, and AR stickers. Yes, there's a boatload of AI features inside, ranging from scene recognition that works with the 12 and 5 megapixel main cameras to filters to even a voice assistant. If you can get past these issues, Funtouch is definitely a functional and feature-rich OS. NEX also packs an Adreno 630 Graphic Processing Unit which is more powerful and energy efficient than its predecessor. There's a dedicated button on the side of the camera that triggers Jovi on the long-press action.

Now, as far as price and availability are concerned, it shouldn't come as a surprise that the phone will only be available in China. Vivo is also rolling out updates to its China-specific Jovi voice assistant, which can now launch apps and identify objects on a user's screen, à la Bixby Vision. It will be available in black and red color options.

A pop-up camera? What will they think of Nex?
