Earlier this month, Vivo launched the NEX and NEX S smartphones in China with truly-bezel less display. Also, unlike most Android counterparts out there, the NEX-series smartphones don’t feature the infamous notch. Vivo managed this by including a motorized pop-up camera, thus saving space to offer a complete edge-to-edge display experience.
Now, the company has confirmed that it will be launching the NEX S in India on July 19. Meanwhile, Vivo’s sister brand, Oppo, is also set to launch the Find X smartphone with motorized pop-up cameras on July 12. As of now, there is no word on the pricing, but considering the China pricing, the Vivo NEX S could set you back by Rs 40,000.
