Vivo has already showcased its Apex 2020 concept smartphone globally. It was one of the biggest reveals for the company in 2020.
Now the company is getting ready to launch its flagship smartphone, dubbed Vivo NEX 3 5G on March 10. To build up hype for the product it has started sharing official teasers for the phone on its social media platforms hinting at the device’s waterfall display, and the presence of the premium Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor.
The device might not make it to Indian shores, considering that the company did not bring its Vivo NEX Dual Screen to the country. But the original NEX was sold in India, so maybe vivo will bring this to the market. Guess it will be wait and watch for Indian consumers with the NEX 3.
Vivo Apex 2020 was an exciting phone with multiple new features, but don’t expect NEX to sport all those features.
According to the teasers, we will get to see a waterfall display similar to the one present on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. And Snapdragon 865 is literally powering every flagship smartphone there is in the market. The regular non-5G version of the Vivo NEX 3 also had a waterfall display.
The Vivo NEX Dual Screen was an exciting product as it brought a quirky feature, which was the front and back display. This one rather seems like a more mass-market smartphone with flagship-grade specifications aimed at competing with the Galaxy S20 series, Oppo Find X2 series and more.
