The first bezel-less smartphone has arrived - and it looks stunning

To do away with all the things that typically need to be on a smartphone's front side, Vivo implemented several daring technological solutions. The company claims the Vivo Nex S comes with the third-generation under-display fingerprint sensor that is claimed to be 10 percent faster with 50 percent improved accuracy. As the name itself suggests, the Vivo Nex is a standard mid-range smartphone and the Nex Ultimate is a flagship smartphone, but both the devices differ only in terms of the chipset and RAM, storage options. According to the listing on the Suning website, the Vivo NEX top-end variant will cost a whopping 9,999 yuan, which converts to Rs.1,05,300 based on the current exchange rate. There's also a voice assistant called Jovi to help users with tasks, though this will likely only be available in China.
The Vivo NEX smartphone comes in three variants.
The other model, Nex A, doesn't have this technology - instead, it has a fingerprint sensor on the back of the handset. The phone sports a bezel-less display with no notch and a screen to body ratio of 91.24%.
As for the rest of the specs, the Vivo NEX has a QualcommSnapdragon 845 processor, an Adreno 630 graphics processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, a 4,000mAh battery and a (slightly disappointing) dual 12/5-megapixel camera on the back. The phone's main 12-megapixel camera comes with an f/1.8 aperture lens, Dual Pixel sensor and 4-axis Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). Another major difference is the absence of the under-display fingerprint sensor. Coming to the pricing, the Vivo NEX with 6GB RAM is priced at 3898 Yuan. We hope it will be launching in other places, but right now it's only confirmed as a device for those in China where the price has yet to be revealed. The one slight disappointment is that the 6.59-inch Super AMOLED screen only has an FHD+ resolution, most likely 2160×1080. And even if there were, it'd be terribly annoying to have to bring the camera up to scan your face.

Meanwhile, that pop-out selfie cam is an 8MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Screen SoundCasting Technology makes it possible for NEX to replace the earpiece speaker. Vivo continues to pursue the ultimate AI photography technologies with AI Scene Recognition, AI HDR, AI Filters and AI Photo Composition. Vivo will also evolve from a manufacturer to an innovative technology company that delivers hardware, software and services. There is a dedicated button beside the camera that triggers the voice assistant on the long-press action.
It's not clear whether the Vivo Nex will be released internationally. Do you think that the Vivo NEX is the smartphone of the future?
