The Vivo NEX 3 is finally here and it comes with the next-gen connectivity. This makes it the first non-gaming flagship to come with 5G connectivity capabilities. Let me reveal to you what the Vivo NEX 3 5G smartphone entails and also its price and release date.
Vivo NEX 3 5G Features
The Vivo NEX 3 5G comes with three cameras with the main camera being a 64MP, effectively becoming the first flagship with the new Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. There other two cameras are – a 13 MP wide-angle shooter and 13 MP telephoto camera.
The Vivo NEX 3 is an amazing device, but the screen is a beauty to behold on its own. The manufacturer calls it a Waterfall FullView Display. It is a Super AMOLED panel with 6.89 inch diagonal and an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 99.6%, according to vivo. This is due to the extremely curved edges of the screen at nearly 90 degrees.
Having a screen on the sides, the Vivo NEX 3 5G says goodbye to physical keys. It comes with Touch Sense, which simulates the real touch of buttons and offers “more exquisite vibration feedback in various use cases”, according to vivo. There is also the feature called X-Axis Haptic that should provide a more comfortable vibration, applied to games, typing and other scenes.
The selfie camera mechanism of the Vivo NEX 3 is similar to the one on the Vivo X27 Pro, but now it comes with a 16MP sensor. . There is a feature called Portrait Master’s Hyper HDR which should increase the dynamic range accuracy between a user’s face and the background’s brightest spot. The regular camera setup will have wide-angle, telescopic and macro capabilities “just a click away”.
On the inside, the NEX 3 is pretty impressive too, as it sports either an 8GB or a 12GB RAM, while the storage is 256GB. It is also powered by a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, which is hardly a surprise since the official social media channels already teased the feature. The Vivo NEX 3 has 4500mAh battery with 44W fast charging support, which has already been announced with the Vivo iQOO Pro.
