Vivo just released the Vivo NEX 3s, a new flagship device with futuristic design.

The Vivo NEX 3s 5G is a follow up to the Nex 3 from last year. It has a newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. It provides seamless performance and also enables its next-generation 5G and WiFi 6 connectivity.


A staple feature of the NEX series is its all-screen Waterfall design. The Vivo NEX 3s has a 6.89-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with a whopping 99.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Vivo achieved this feat by using the 16-megapixel primary camera on a pop-up mechanism. Vivo even included front-facing selfies in case you need it.


On the back, we have the triple camera setup. It’s led by a 64-megapixel main shooter, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens that has a 52mm focal length and can do up to 20x of digital zoom.

The Vivo NEX 3s also has other flagship-level features like HDR10+ support, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a large 4,500mAh battery with 44W fast charging support.


Vivo also included a dedicated AK4377A Hi-Fi chip for better sound output on headphones. A feature that a lot of brands overlook on their smartphones.
