Vivo introduced APEX as the world’s first bezel-less smartphone with in-display fingerprint scanner and over 90% screen-to-body ratio at the MWC 2018 back in February. Last month the company released an image that said that the phone will be introduced at an event in Shanghai, China on June 12th. Today the company has confirmed that the phone will be called NEX.
It has also teased some of the features of the smartphones such as bezel-less display, AI, powerful SoC and more. Earlier rumors said that the phone will come in two models, one with a pop-up front camera as seen in the image below, and Snapdragon 845 SoC. The other version called NEX S is said to be powered by Snapdragon 710 and the front camera on the bottom right corner on the bezel, similar to the Mi MIX 2.
The Vivo NEX with Snapdragon 845 is rumored to be priced at 6998 yuan (US$ 1090 / Rs. 73,270 approx.) , while the Snapdragon 710-powered NEX S is rumored to cost 4998 yuan (US$ 780 / Rs. 52,330 approx.). We should know all the details of the smartphone when it goes official in less than a couple of weeks.
