With the launch of the NEX earlier this year, Vivo made everyone in the smartphone industry sit up and take notice. From a bezel-less all-screen display to a pop-up selfie lens, Vivo NEX is filled with a lot of innovation. However, the Chinese technology company doesn’t want to rest on its laurels, and is already working on the NEX’s successor.

Over the past few days, numerous leaks regarding the upcoming Vivo NEX 2 have surfaced online. Among other features, these leaks have confirmed that the smartphone will have two displays (6.59-inch primary and 5.5-inch secondary, as per a report) one each on the front and the back, a setup similar to the one used by the recently-launched Nubia X.

While it’s too early to comment on the practicality of two screens, it’s quite likely that only one of them will be active at a time. But, the question is, how do you toggle between the two panels? The answer is simple: with a simple gesture.

A short hands-on video (embedded below) of the alleged Vivo NEX 2 has surfaced online, highlighting the toggling mechanism between the smartphone’s two displays. As shown in the video, all it takes is a three-finger horizontal swipe gesture on the currently active display to switch over to the opposite display.

If a recent report is to be believed, Vivo NEX 2 will go official in China on December 11. The flagship smartphone will most likely be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 SoC, paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of internal storage. It’s also expected to pack in an under-display fingerprint sensor, just like its predecessor.
