One of the two Vivo Nex smartphones has just surfaced, and unlike the one that leaked yesterday, this one sports a pop-up camera. Vivo is expected to introduce two Vivo Nex smartphones on June 12, one of which will sport a front-facing camera in its bottom-right corner, while the other one, that just leaked, will ship with a pop-up camera, just like the Vivo Apex concept phone which was shown off during this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona.
The device that just leaked actually looks just like the Vivo Apex, while the one that surfaces yesterday has a bit thicker bottom chin, and its corners are more rounded. Now, button placement on the device that just surfaced is quite interesting, as it seems like it will ship with a left-facing power / lock key, while its volume up and down buttons will be on the right. The phone has almost no bezel, it has an extremely thin chin on the bottom, and it’s quite possible that it will have the same display aspect ratio as the Vivo Apex, which means we’re looking at 98-percent screen-to-body ratio here. The phone’s display will sport rounded corners, and the device’s Type-C USB port will be included on the bottom. Vivo has already announced its June 12 event, and the company teased the arrival of its bezel-less handset, but we’re still not sure whether one or both Vivo Nex devices will be announced.
Now, Vivo did announce partial specs for the Vivo Apex, and since this is the same phone, but with a slightly different name, you can expect to see the Snapdragon 845 64-bit octa-core SoC included in the package. This Vivo Nex variant will probably ship with a 5.99-inch OLED display with COF technology, while it will sport an in-display fingerprint scanner as well. The device will offer Hi-Fi audio, and feature a so-called System in Package (SiP) technology, three amplifiers, and a rather capable DAC. The phone’s top and side bezels are 1.8mm thick, while its bottom bezel is 4.3mm thick, at least based on the info that Vivo shared earlier. It is also worth noting that it takes 0.8 seconds for the pop-up camera to be ready for shooting.
