Vivo’s upcoming NEX-branded devices have been leaking like crazy for weeks now, and now we have a new set of leaks to share with you. Before we begin, it is worth noting that two different NEX variants are expected to launch on June 12, the flagship Vivo NEX, and the mid-range Vivo NEX S handsets, while the NEX A had also been mentioned in a report, though that model will probably be China-exclusive, and we don’t have any info about it at the moment. In any case, today real-life images, a render, and two sets of spec sheets leaked, so there’s a lot of ground to cover.
Let’s kick things off with the Vivo NEX’s appearance in a TV ad in China. If you take a look at the first three screenshots down below, you will be able to see screenshots that were taken from that ad. The device that you can see in those images seems to be the Vivo NEX, as it does feature a pop-up front-facing camera, and a dual camera setup on the back. The device will have an incredibly high screen to body ratio, somewhere in between 95-percent and 98-percent, same goes for the Vivo NEX S, actually, though the Vivo NEX S will ship with a regular front-facing camera. Having said that, the Vivo NEX also appeared in a render, and it sports a red-colored back. As you can see, the phone is made out of metal and glass, and its cameras on the back are vertically-aligned. NEX branding is clearly visible on the back, and the back side of the phone is curved. All the physical keys can be found on the right-hand side of the phone, while the phone’s display sports rounded corners.
Now, as already mentioned, the Vivo NEX specs surfaced as well, in two different leaks, though they’re reporting the same info, more or less. According to the provided info, the Vivo NEX will arrive in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants, while those two variants will ship with 128GB and 256GB of storage, respectively. The phone will sport a 6.59-inch fullHD+ (2316 x 1080) display, and it will ship with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with Vivo’s Funtouch UI on top of it. A 4,000mAh battery will be included in the package, while the phone will include 12 and 5-megapixel cameras on the back. A single 8-megapixel camera will be included on the front side of the device, while the phone will be fueled by an octa-core processor. The device will measure 162 x 77 x 7.98mm, and it will sport two SIM card slots.
