Vivo NEX smartphone was launched in China last week. While we’ve got a good look at its features and specifications, the company hasn’t revealed anything about launching the device in other markets. Now however, a new rumor has surfaced claiming that the Vivo NEX A and NEX S will be coming to India in the month of July.

According to a report by 91mobiles, the NEX flagships will be launching in India by the third week of July. The Vivo NEX S is revealed to be priced around Rs 40,000, but there was no word on the pricing for the NEX A. Being the affordable variant though, experts claim the device to be priced around Rs 31,000. Nothing is confirmed yet and we’ll still have to wait for an official word from Vivo.

Vivo NEX A and NEX S specifications and features

The NEX S being the higher variant comes with Snapdragon 845 SoC and 8GB of RAM, while the NEX A comes with the new Snapdragon 710 SoC with 6GB of RAM. Both the devices come with 128GB of storage, but the NEX S is also expected to come in a 256GB storage variant. Another major difference is that the NEX S will be featuring an in-display fingerprint sensor, just like the Vivo X21. Vivo claims that it has upgraded the technology, making it 50 percent more accurate and 10 percent faster. The NEX A, on the other hand, will be sporting a conventional fingerprint sensor placed at the back.
