Vivo NEXT Dual Display Edition announced

Vivo has certainly made waves over the past few years when it comes to rolling out smartphones that are packed with quality components and offering a performance-for-value ratio that can only be matched by other China-based players such as Xiaomi, Huawei and Oppo. This time around, their flagship series has just received a bump in the form of the NEX Dual Display Edition. The NEX Dual Display Edition offers a revolutionary dual-screen design which is able to provide a truly multifaceted smartphone experience, sporting an advanced triple camera setup alongside other kinds of industry-leading technologies.

 Great looks in a peripheral or mobile device are not enough for the modern day road warrior, as it needs to be accompanied by fantastic performance. With this in mind, the NEX Dual Display Edition does not disappoint as it embodies breakthrough innovation in both design and performance, while elevating the mobile experience to a new level.

The main focus would be its 6.39-inch Ultra FullView Display that is located at the front, making it an impressive upgrade compared to its predecessor. This results in an improved screen-to-body ratio of 91.63%, as the Super AMOLED front display offers a notch-free and immersive viewing experience for everyone. The disappearance of a notch would come as a relief to certain quarters, I suspect.

There is also another 5.49-inch Super AMOLED display that is located at the phone’s back, hence delivering an unconventional smartphone experience as it enables a greater degree flexibility in using the rear cameras. This makes shooting high-quality selfies a whole lot easier than ever before, since users will be able to use the main cameras along with the rear screen in order to obtain the optimal angle. The presence of a futuristic looking Lunar Ring on the rear display results in a glowing band of colors, where the current color will signify different kinds of notifications, with the ability to pulse with music.

In addition, this flagship device sports a triple camera setup: comprising of a 12MP Dual-Pixel main camera (featuring a Sony IMX363 sensor and 4-axis OIS), a specialized Night Video Camera and an innovative Time of Flight (TOF) 3D Camera. Other hardware specifications include the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor, 10GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM. With two displays at work, one must wonder about how energy efficient it is. Still, we believe that being a flagship model, it is going to feature a battery life that lives up to its reputation.
