The top-left corner of the phone is seen featuring a vertically stacked triple-camera system with an LED flash placed below. The appearance of the triple camera unit is identical to the dual-camera module found on the original Vivo NEX phone. The only difference is the inclusion of a third sensor.
Companies like Huawei and Samsung have already released phones with triple rear cameras. However, Vivo is yet to launch a smartphone with three rear-mounted cameras. The Vivo brand, with its “camera and music” tagline has launched a slew of smartphones with dual rear cameras. It is very likely that the company may soon unleash phones with triple rear cameras. So, the existence of Vivo NEX 2 flagship phone with triple rear cameras cannot be ruled out.
At present, there is no information available on the specifications of the phone. Since the authenticity of the image of the alleged Vivo NEX 2 could not be confirmed, it is advisable to take the leak with a pinch of salt.
