Vivo has announced the launch of their all screen smartphones Vivo Nex A and Nex S in India. Vivo Nex India launch is slated for July 19. Earlier this month, Chinese smartphone brand Vivo recently launched Vivo Nex in their domestic market.
What makes Vivo Nex unique is its design, where every other brand is copying iPhone X’s notch design (well Vivo did it too with V9), Vivo has found a way to offer a true all screen phone which has a pop-selfie camera.
All thanks to the new design, Vivo Nex features a massive 6.59-inches with 91.24 percent screen-to-body ratio. That’s not it, Vivo Nex is packed with arguable the fastest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, in-display fingerprint sensor and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
At MWC 2018, the Chinese mobile company unveiled the concept phone Vivo Apex which surprised everyone with its impressive design. Now the handset maker is bringing Vivo Apex to the masses by rebranding it as Vivo Nex.
