Vivo launched the next-generation NEX smartphone in China on Tuesday. The Vivo NEX 3 is a Vivo’s second 5G-enabled smartphone, after the Vivo iQOO Pro 5G.
The Vivo Nex 3 5G is priced at 5,698 Yuan (about ₹57,700) for the 8GB/256GB variant while its 12GB/256GB model is priced at 6,198 Yuan (about ₹62,700). Vivo said the NEX 3-series will be available in the coming months in Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and other markets.
It is lit by a 6.89-inch POLED Waterfall FullView display, that is Vivo’s rendition of a display with curved edges. Like all other Vivo NEX devices, its display doesn’t have a notch of any kind; instead it has a mechanised slider to accommodate the 16MP front facing camera. The display also houses an in-display fingerprint sensor and includes features like X-axis Haptic Vibration motor and Touch Sense.
It is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus paired Qualcomm’s X55 5G modem. The SoC is coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of super-fast UFS 3.0 internal storage. The phone also comes with Vapor Chamber Cooling System to keep the smartphone cool during heavy 5G usage.
At the rear, the Vivo NEX 3 comes with a 64MP primary shooter, 13MP wide-angle and another 13MP telephoto camera.
Vivo launched the NEX 3 with a new Bluetooth accessory called the Vivo True Wireless Stereo (TWS) Earphones. The company claims the earphones maintain “consistent high-quality audio with the Qualcomm Bluetooth platform and dual delivery technology, bringing users a unique and outstanding smart listening experience in different scenarios.”
