Vivo NEX announced with pop-up camera and in-display fingerprint sensor

The smartphone comes with a 6.59-inch Super AMOLED Ultra FullView "Zero Screen" Display with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24 percent and 2316 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. At the moment, Vivo Nex is limited to China.

It's an ingenious solution to a problem that phone designers have been trying to solve ever since Xiaomi started the bezel-less craze with the Mi Mix. On the front look, we can get a real good look of the pop-up front camera and the large display that is measured 6.59-inch from our last report, but the chin below still looks bigger than the rest of the bezels.

Vivo Nex has been launched in China, featuring an in-display fingerprint scanner and a pop-up front-facing camera. 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 United States of A. The Vivo Nex A is equipped with a 128GB of inbuilt storage. 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.

NEX also replaces the traditional earpiece speaker entirely with its Screen SoundCasting Technology by turning the screen into a speaker. It's not clear how this tech works, but according to Vivo, it turns the screen into the speaker, without sacrificing sound quality. The Vivo Nex takes things up a notch and features a spec sheet that is worthy of its futuristic features. 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. There's no microSD card slot inside the smartphone.

Check out the full Vivo Nex specs and features here. Photography has not been overlooked - a 12MP f/1.8 main and 5MP f/2.4 depth-sensing cameras could be found at the rear of the Vivo NEX. The cameras on the back also benefit from the AI-capabilities of the device with scene recognition, HDR, filters and photo composition. If you can get past these issues, Funtouch is definitely a functional and feature-rich OS.

The world's first bezel-less smartphone has arrived, and it comes from Chinese manufacturer VIVO. The glass back is coated with what Vivo calls "Holographic Diffraction Dynamic Color" illusion technology, which sees thousands of "diffraction units" laser engraved onto the back of the device to create a "dreamlike sci-fi effect". That includes having a dedicated Jovi button. I'll add pricing here when that's made available. We'll update this post as more details surface. Embodying the "next" era in smartphone technology, NEX will usher in an entirely new concept of the smartphone for today's users, allowing them to experience the future and innovations beyond the imagination. Let us know in the comments!
