Vivo NEX 3: Waterfall display, 64-megapixel camera, 5G connectivity


Vivo held a special event in Shanghai, China and announced the new Vivo NEX 3, a device that showcases the new innovations that they’re bringing on the table.

The NEX series is known for their all-screen displays and one of the firsts to come with pop-up cameras and in-screen fingerprint scanners. With the Vivo NEX 3, the company has improved what’s already an interesting smartphone.


This device features a large 6.89-inch POLED FHD+ display, with curved edges on each side that’s aptly called as the “Waterfall FullView”. It provides a mind-blowing 99.6% screen-to-body ratio, which we may have never seen before.

To achieve this look, Vivo had to replace the physical buttons on the side with on-screen ones. Its advanced X-axis haptic vibration motor will provide an identical feeling of actual button presses.


Another big feature of the Vivo NEX 3 is its 64-megapixel ISOCELL primary camera, making it one of the firsts to have it. There’s also the 13-megapixel ultra-wide and telephoto cameras.

To further achieve that all-screen look, Vivo had to hide the 16-megapixel selfie camera on a pop-up mechanism on the top.


Since this is a flagship device, the Vivo NEX 3 is rigged with the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

There’s also the 4,500mAh battery with the new 44W Super FlashCharge support that should fill-up the tank in no time. Vivo said that the large battery should support the power needs of the device’s ultra-fast 5G connectivity.
