Vivo Nex S, Nex A With Pop-Up Selfie Camera, Up to 256GB Inbuilt Storage Launched: Price, Specifications

The Vivo Nex S and Vivo Nex A were launched in China as the company’s latest flagship smartphones on Tuesday. The Vivo Nex S is the premium model, and features a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB RAM, up to 256GB inbuilt storage, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The company claims the Vivo Nex S comes with the third-generation under-display fingerprint sensor that is claimed to be 10 percent faster with 50 percent improved accuracy. The Nex A on the other hand, comes with Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB RAM, 128GB inbuilt storage, and uses a rear fingerprint sensor instead of the in-display one. Notably, there is no half-display fingerprint scanning tech, as seen in the Vivo Apex concept phone teased earlier this year. 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.

Both the Vivo Nex S and Nex A come with a new UI called Energy UI with a Red coloured theme. The handsets also include the Jovi AI assistant, that boasts of features such as NLU (natural language understanding), ASR (automatic speech recognition), emotion detection, text-to-speech, and others. The smartphones will come with a dedicated Jovi AI assistant button. Vivo claims that the Nex’s camera features AI-powered features, filters, and an HDR mode. The camera also supports DCI-P3 colour gamut. The Vivo Nex S and Nex A also feature 7.1-channel 3D audio. It is optimised to run games made using Unreal Engine. It also has a Vivo Game Engine, made in partnership with Tencent Games. One of the most interesting new feature in the Vivo Nex S and Nex A is the Screen SoundCasting technology. It replaces the earpiece from the front side to achieve a bezel-less display. It leverages screen vibrations through a micro-vibration unit to generate the sound – similar to the first generation Mi Mix bezel-less smartphone. The mouthpiece appears to be placed in the lower bezel.
