Vivo NEX 3 5G presented with a large waterfall screen, snapdragon 855+ and virtual buttons. Last month, Vivo launched an advance for NEX 3 which reveals that the device has a curved edge waterfall screen and a pop-up selfie camera. Today we learned the rest of the story when Vivo officially introduced the NEX 3 series, which includes 5G and 4G LTE variants. The phone has a 6.89-inch FullView Cascade POLED screen with FHD + resolution and the manufacturer claim to offer a 99.6% screen-to-body ratio. The edges of the waterfall screen can show a light show when the music is played or when you receive a call on the phone.
Vivo NEX 3 5G works with the overclocked Snapdragon 855+. It includes a 15% increase in the performance of the Adreno 640 GPU. It also includes the Snapdragon X50 5G modem, which supports mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G networks. And the phone has the latest version of Universal Flash Storage, UFS 3.0. This will allow the phone to open games and apps faster. And users will save some time when the device starts. Are you taking notes, Google?
The NEX 3 5G will be available with 8 GB or 12 GB of memory along with 256 GB of memory. Round camera modules seem to be this year for Chinese manufacturers. And Vivo calls its module the Moon Ring Camera System. The triple camera setup on the back includes a 64 MP f / 1.8 aperture main camera. A 13 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 13 MP telephoto camera. A 16 MP snapper selfie helps keep the screen-body ratio high. There is a fingerprint scanner on the screen and a battery capacity of 4500 mAh keeps the lights on. Super FlashCharge by Vivo uses a 44W adapter to quickly replace the battery. And Android 9 is pre-installed with the Vivo Funtouch OS 9.1 mask at the top.
A steam room cooling system keeps the phone cool even during long periods of 5G usage. Network speeds have improved thanks to the use of dual WLAN acceleration technology. This allows you to use two Wi-Fi signals simultaneously. And Vivo’s Touch Sense replaces physical buttons with virtual buttons on the side of the phone. Using tactile feedback, the user will receive a response from the device when a virtual button is pressed.
“The NEX 3 series is testament to Vivo’s commitment to the future of smartphone design and development. It demonstrates Vivo’s continuous redefinition and breaking of boundaries, and pursuit of perfection, by providing users with advanced technology and an innovative product experience. Carrying the innovative DNA of the NEX brand, the NEX 3 series offers one of the most premium mobile experiences and best all-around flagship devices available today – and is leading the smartphone industry into a new stage of exploration in the 5G era.”- Spark Ni, Senior Vice President, Vivo
