Vivo NEX S is an upcoming latest smartphone with a presumed price of Rs106,300 in Pakistan. The smartphone attributes 6.59 inch screen and an 8 MP sliding camera at the front. It also has a dual 12+5 MP back camera. It runs with Android v8.1 Oreo and will run on 2.7 GHz processor. The phone has 8 GB RAM and 128/256 GB in-built memory. It is powered by 4000 mAh battery.
Vivo NEX S is the toned-down version of Vivo NEX. It features Snapdragon 845 chipset instead of Snapdragon 710 which was the most expected chipset to be featured by NEX S. It is specially designed for people, who want to own the nearly bezel-free smartphone with super-cool selfie periscope yet are not willing to pay more than 55000.
Vivo NEX S has got crazy thin bezels. The bezels on the top and sides of the display are very tiny measuring only 1.8mm. These are the thinnest bezels ever found on such phones. While the bottom bezels are of 4.3mm. The secret behind its incredible screen design is the flexible OLED platform which lets to mount the microchips directly into the flexible circuit board, saving the crucial space to be used to make the phone’s profile as small as possible.
The display of Vivo NEX S is not an ordinary display. It is one of the most amazing features of this smartphone. Under the display, there is a fingerprint scanner which has the most innovative scanning technology. The company has increased the scanner size and now the bottom half of the screen is able to recognize the fingerprints. There is no need to touch a specific and dedicated spot, in fact, the bottom part of the display recognizes your fingerprint anywhere you touch. Vivo has decided to name this new technology as ‘Half-Screen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning’. The fingerprint scanning has become even more reliable and secure because of the support of dual-fingerprint scanning setup. This setup takes two of your fingers to unlock your phone.
There is another very interesting feature of NEX S which is its selfie camera. The selfie camera cannot be seen anywhere in normal conditions but when the selfie mode is enabled, an 8-megapixels camera pops up at the top of the screen. Although it is done in just 0.8 seconds yet it looks fascinating and creative.
The small bezel size at the bottom has resulted in the reduction of conventional earpiece speaker. To compensate it, Vivo has created a Screen SoundCasting Technology which will turn the entire display into a speaker. This technology is also amazing in terms of battery consumption as it uses less power compared to the traditional audio methods.
Update: Vivo Nex S announced with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
