Vivo is introducing its second in-glass fingerprint sensor smartphone known as the Vivo NEX. The concept Vivo Apex was showcased at the MWC 2018 back in February. Well, that particular smartphone has renamed to NEX. So here’s everything you need to know about the Vivo NEX.
Vivo Nex: The Conceptual Flagship Smartphone.
Vivo Nex will be launched as an upgraded variant of the Vivo X21. Well, the smartphone will offer flagship specifications, coupled with an in-glass fingerprint sensor. The technology knows as “Half-Screen In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology” will be used in the Vivo NEX. It allows the user to use half of the display as a Fingerprint scanner eliminating the need for pressing a particular surface of the screen to unlock the device.
Well, Vivo relies on System in Package (SIP) technology that helps integrate most of the system hardware and microchips in a small space. These design ergonomics helps reduce the overall dimensions of the smartphone, making more room for the battery.
The smartphone hides an 8-Megapixel front-facing camera inside the smartphone’s body, which triggers the front camera when needed and it roughly takes 0.8 seconds for the camera to activate itself and start functioning.
