Vivo NEX 3 brings dual curved ‘Waterfall Display' to the fore

Vivo NEX 3 brings dual curved ‘Waterfall Display' to the fore

Unlike Samsung's flagships, however, the new Vivo device stays true to the Nex segment design by integrating a pop-up camera which gives the device a screen-to-body ratio just 0.4% shy of 100%.

Vivo is calling the display on the Nex 3 as "waterfall" screen because the screen blends towards the edges as well. It means there's no physical volume/power buttons either, instead a pressure-sensitive section under the screen provides haptic feedback. NEX 3 5G also hides physical buttons from sight, creating a seamless, touch-controlled unibody design.

Vivo NEX 3 is a flagship smartphone, so it's only natural to expect it to be powered by a flagship processor. The chipset onboard also brings along the Snapdragon X50 modem to enable fast 5G connectivity, which is great. The NEX 3 5G with 8GB RAM has a ¥5698 (~$806) price tag while the 12GB version will sell for ¥6198 (~$877).

At the event, Vivo announced that the Nex 3 will start at 5,698 yuan which equates to just over $800. This includes a primary 64MP (f/1.7) sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide sensor with a 120-degree field-of-view (FOV) and the ability to click macros at a focal length of 2.5cm, and a third 13MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom.

Moving to the back of the smartphone, you'll find three cameras housed in a circular pod. There's voice control, similar to iOS 13, baked into the phone as well. That said, the Vivo Nex 3 5G variant may not reach the Indian market and the company may bring the 4G version of the smartphone. The phone has a 4500mAh battery with Vivo's 44W Super FlashCharge charging tech, and there's also a liquid cooling chamber.

But that's not all, the NEX 3 comes with heaps of other top-end features too. The Nex 3 is one of the best-looking smartphones and doesn't disappoint on the hardware front either. Vivo is launching the 4G and 5G variant of the device.

The Vivo Nex 3 will be available "in the coming months" in the Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and "other" markets. NEX 3 5G is equipped with 8GB/12GB+256GB storage and supports global frequency bands and NFC. Breakthrough design including FullView™ display The ground-breaking new POLED Waterfall FullView™ Display stretches the smartphone screen beyond limits with flawless curved edges that flow with sleek elegance.
