Vivo is calling the phone Nex Dual Display Edition. The Nex Dual Display Edition is using the same concept that Nubia recently used on their flagship — use two displays to get rid of the front camera.
The Nex Dual Display Edition has a 6.4-inch full-screen AMOLED display at the front that renders pictures at a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, while the secondary display at the rear has a Full HD 5.5-inch AMOLED panel with thick bezels to the sides.
The rear also houses a set of three cameras on the top – 12-megapixel primary sensor alongside a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The third sensor is primarily a Time-of-Flight (TOF) module housing an F1.3 lens that is only utilized for face unlock as well as 3D images.
You will need to use both sides of the phone in order to gel well with the phone. When you want a full-screen viewing experience, the front display with no bezels is easily the best bet. When the camera needs to be used, you will need to flip the phone around and use the rear cameras for taking pictures. The rear of the phone also needs to be used when the 3D face unlock feature needs to be used.
Both the displays feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, which works in combination with the 3D face unlock feature. The Lunar Ring illuminates when notifications come up. The Lunar Ring also glows when the rear camera is used for taking selfies.
There's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset paired along with 10GB of RAM and 128GB storage. A 3500mAh battery acts as the power source with a 10V fast charging. Vivo has also retained the 3.5mm headphone jack, in case you were wondering.
Vivo has priced the Nex Dual Display Edition at CNY 4,998, which is approximately Rs 52,000 in Indian denomination.
The original Nex made it to the Indian shores and there's a chance that Vivo could eventually end up bringing it to the Indian market at a similar price. However, there's no confirmation of the same as of now.
