The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition is the latest phone coming from the Chinese manufacturer. The key feature of this new smartphone is that it has two active displays – one on the front and the other at the back. But that is just the beginning of the spec sheets, read on as you set your eyes on the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition full specification, price and release date.
Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition Features
The main display sitting at the front of the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition has almost bezel-less design, and it fits into a 6.39 inches diagonal. The display is Super AMOLED, having a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels, and an extra tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio. According to the manufacturer, the display covers 91.63% of the phone’s front.
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.
If you choose to unlock the phone from the main screen, you will have to rely on the in-display fingerprint instead. Vivo says that the phone has plenty of features in the camera menu – from AI scene recognition to Body and Face Shaping. There is a lot to play around with.
The Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition is powered by a 3500mAh battery and supports fast charging at 10V/2.25A. The phone will be shipped with Android 9.0 Pie out-of-the-box with Funtouch OS 4.5 on top.
