The back panel of the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition is also Super AMOLED, but it is significantly smaller standing at 5.49 inches in diagonal. It uses the obsolete 1080 x 1920 resolution with a standard 16.9 aspect ratio.

The new Vivo NEX Dual came with a Snapdragon 845 chipset, which is paired with a whopping 10GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, which is non-expandable.

As per the camera department, the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition lacks front-facing camera, which makes the front panel to look pretty clean. The back panel houses three sensors. The main camera is 12MP with OIS and f/1.79 aperture lens while the secondary is just 2MP with f/1.8, which is probably used only for depth sensing. The third camera is a Time of Flight type (ToF) and its primary use is for distance measurement and for advanced face unlock. But that’s only if you are unlocking the phone while facing its back.
