Vivo NEX S, the first truly bezelless smartphone with no notch and a pop-up selfie camera, will be officially launched in India on July 19. The Chinese smartphone maker has already sent out media invites for the event and now, a new leak reveals key details including price.
According to MySmartPrice, the Vivo NEX S will be exclusive to Amazon India and will be priced at Rs 48,900. The report says the pricing details for the upcoming smartphone were found on Amazon’s website. The notify me page also reveals that the smartphone will be available for pre-order starting July 19 at 1PM. The launch event is scheduled for 12 noon on July 19 in New Delhi.
The Vivo NEX S is expected to be available in two variants and will compete against Oppo Find X, which was launched in India yesterday. The Vivo NEX S and Oppo Find X offer truly bezel-less design with no notch and feature mechanical pop-up camera mechanism. The Oppo Find X is priced at Rs 59,990 and if Vivo sticks to the leaked price then it already seems to undercut the Find X significantly.
In terms of specifications, the NEX S features a 6.59-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2316 x 1080 pixels and taller 19.3:9 aspect ratio. Powering the device is octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC clocked at 2.7GHz coupled with Adreno 630 GPU. The NEX S will be offered with 8GB of RAM and option for either 128GB or 256GB storage.
On the camera front, the NEX S features dual rear camera system compromising of a 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel image sensors. It also has an 8-megapixel selfie camera which is not as elaborate as the mechanical system found on Find X. While Oppo Find X lacks fingerprint sensor, the NEX S has an in-display fingerprint sensor similar to the Vivo X21.
