The Vivo NEX is one of the most innovative phones of 2018.
The Indian handset market is one of the most competitive in the world, with no shortage of options at all price points. Vivo has managed to rise up the ranks in the country over the last four years through a combination of aggressive marketing and an impressive distribution network. The company has targeted the budget and mid-range segments, but it is now setting its sights on the premium category with its latest flagship, the NEX.
These are two of the best options if you’re looking for a truly bezel-less phone.
The Vivo NEX and the Find X are two of the hottest phones right now. Both devices rely on motorized sliders as a way of hiding the camera module. In the case of the Find X, both the rear and front cameras are hidden behind the slider, whereas the NEX has a pop-up front camera that kicks in whenever needed.
The Vivo NEX’s front-facing camera is one of the coolest things we’ve seen in years.
Vivo may not be that well-known here in the U.S., but on June 12, the company unveiled what’s easily one of the most interesting phones we’ve seen in 2018. The Vivo NEX is the closest we’ve gotten so far to a truly “bezel-less” smartphone, and to achieve this, Vivo did something awfully unique with the front-facing camera.
For the second time in as many weeks, a Chinese smartphone maker released a phone that’s supposed to be the all-screen device we all want. But, just like Lenovo’s Z5 last week, the Vivo Nex isn’t the bezel-less phone we wanted.
But at least there’s no notch on this one.
