Vivo has recently announced a significant upgrade to its existing flagship series, NEX, at a launch event in China. Building on the premium line-up, NEX Dual Display Edition offers a revolutionary dual-screen design that is said to provide a multifaceted smartphone experience. With a triple camera setup and industry-leading technologies, NEX Dual Display Edition features innovation in both design and performance.

Featuring a 6.39-inch Ultra FullView Display at the front, it is an upgrade from the previous generation. It boasts an improved screen-to-body ratio of 91.63 per cent and it comes in a notch-free design that offers an immersive viewing experience to users. With an additional 5.49-inch Super AMOLED display on the phone’s back, the NEX Dual Display Edition delivers an unconventional smartphone experience by allowing greater flexibility in using the rear cameras. High-quality selfies are now easier than ever before, as users can simply use the main cameras along with the rear screen to get the perfect angles for selfies.

 

Adding another futuristic element to the design, the Lunar Ring featured on the rear display creates a glowing band of colours which can signify notifications and even pulse with music.

The NEX Dual Display Edition’s triple camera setup consists of a 12MP Dual-Pixel main camera (featuring a Sony IMX363 sensor and 4-axis OIS), a specialised Night Video Camera and an innovative Time of Flight (TOF) 3D Camera. The pro-level Night Video Camera helps users film clear and stable footage in motion and low-light environments, while the TOF 3D Camera empowers users to see the world with an added dimension. Its 3D sensing capabilities enable point-to-point distance measuring as well as supports 3D Modelling of the user’s face for enhanced facial recognition, protection and personalised beautification.

Vivo has created even more innovative, yet practical camera modes for NEX Dual Display Edition, such as Mirror Mode and Pose Director. Mirror Mode allows users to see themselves in the rear display while being photographed or filmed, while Pose Director can show a posed image or video in the rear display as a reference for imitation. Apart from these modes, we also find camera modes such as AI Scene Recognition, AI Filters and AI Portrait Framing, along with the diffusion lighting from the Selfie Softlight as part of the Lunar Ring.

The NEX Dual Display Edition adopts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor and comes with 10GB RAM and 128GB ROM. It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner along with a TOF 3D Camera with 3D sensing technology for enhanced facial recognition protection.
