Vivo is all set to launch two new smartphones in China tomorrow, called the NEX and NEX S. The smartphones are based on Vivo APEX concept phone that comes with a pop-out front camera. Ahead of the launch, press renders and specifications of the smartphone had already leaked, and now, a small hands-on video has also surfaced, showing off front and back design of the smartphone.

Spotted by SlashLeaks on Weibo, the five-second-long video shows off the all display front of Vivo NEX with extremely thin bezels on the sides, and a small bottom chin. And it doesn’t come with a notch either. The back is made from shiny glass surface with vertically arranged dual cameras and LED flash below it. The physical fingerprint scanner can also be seen at the center, just above the NEX branding. The other smartphone, Vivo NEX S, is expected to come with an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Vivo NEX, NEX S specifications and features

Both the Vivo NEX and NEX S will come 6.59-inch display with full HD+ resolution. The Vivo NEX is likely to be the budget offering powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

The Vivo NEX S, on the other hand, is likely to be the flagship smartphone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC paired 8GB of RAM, 128GB storage, and a massive 4,000mAh battery.

But smartphones are likely to sport dual rear cameras featuring a 12-megapixel primary sensor, and a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor. Up front 8-megapixel front camera for selfies and video calling is likely to be in tow. There is no word on the pricing and availability, but we will know about it in detail when Vivo officially launches the smartphone tomorrow.
