Vivo has added another smartphone to its series of phones, and is the NEX S. The phone has a unique feature, which is the in-the-display or under-the-display fingerprint scanner. You don't have to unlock your phone from the rear or back but directly from the screen of your phone. Is that not awesome?

And also, the NEX S is the first Vivo flagship or mobile phone with a Snapdragon 845 chipset processor and an 8GB RAM. Multitasking got easier and goodbye to lagging, hanging and unresponsiveness while carrying out your daily activities.

Your multimedia files can be stored with the massive 128GB inbuilt memory storage and another variant of 256GB built-in storage. Oh! It doesn't support a microSD for memory expansion. However, the installed memory is enough to store your files and third-party cloud storage can also be supportive.

Vivo NEX S smartphone supports Dual Nano 4G LTE network with the speed of 1024/50mbps. Imagine that heavy file you want to download, it will get downloaded within seconds while using a fast connection.

The Vivo NEX S phone has no bezel. Back then, the Galaxy 8 brought a thin bezel and was cutout by iPhone X but the launch of the Vivo NES series completely removed it.

Another interesting feature sighted on the Vivo NEX S is the clever pop-up selfie camera. The mechanical pop-up camera can move in and out of its enclosure, and there is always an accompanying sound as it pop out.

Features of Vivo NEX S Smartphone


The Vivo NEX S has a rich back AMOLED screen with 6.59 inch FHD+ Ultra FullView display with no bezel and 19.3:9 aspect ratio to provide an immersive viewing experience. It has a resolution of 2160 × 1080 pixels and support for multi-touch for assistance in multiple touch of your screen surface.


It has a unique design with a very little bezel, and at the top, there's a 3.5mm audio jack and the quality loud speaker at the bottom. It offers over 86.0% screen-to-body ratio. It's available in two color options: Black and Red. You have your choice to make in this aspect. The Dual Nano SIM, Vivo NEX S measures 162 × 77 × 7.98mm in dimension and 199 grams in weight. Very light and awesome as it reflect sunlight like any other glass-backed phones.


The under-the-display fingerprint scanner is awesome but still yet, the rear back camera is still more practical because sometimes, the feature does not work on some stuffs like opening a bank. Instead, it priorities the touchscreen and bypasses the fingerprint scanner for manual input. However, the feature just emerged and with time, it will improve. The Vivo NEX S fingerprint scanner is placed at the bottom of the phone's display screen.


As there is no space for the frontal camera, the pop-up selfie camera comes out from its enclosure and take a picture with a sound accompanying it. You can mute or change the sound to sci-fi, rhythm and machine, but you can't choose a song from your music player, and the sound can only be heard in a quiet area.

The Vivo NEX S has 12MP + 5MP dual camera setup with bokeh effect, face beauty mode and a dual LED flash. The pop-up frontal camera has 8MP frontal camera with f/2.0 aperture.


Vivo NEX S is the first Vivo flagship to use a Qualcomm SDM845 Snapdragon 845 processor. The phone also uses an Octa-core CPU and Adreno 603 to handle graphics, combined with 8GB RAM for equal powerful solution. The device uses 256GB inbuilt memory storage with no external memory storage.


Vivo NEX S is powered by a non-removable 4000mAh battery capacity. It has a fast charging technology and when it does low, the "dual engine quick charge" can pump an extra 40 percent to the battery within 20 minutes, making it more fast and rapid.
