There's a vivo NEX A with an in-display fingerprint scanner in the works

Ivan, 29 August 2018

Vivo may be working on a version of its NEX A smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The assumption is derived from a model name listed in a certification with the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

The model in the listing is the vivo NEX UD A, UD meaning under display fingerprint and it's logical to assume that it's just a NEX A with an in-display fingerprint scanner and no scanner on the back.

Meanwhile in Russia, four mystery vivo devices have been certified with the Eurasian Economic Commission. The model numbers are vivo 1807, vivo 1811 and vivo 1812 but those tell us nothing about the devices at this time.

The vivo NEX A has firmly stood in the more upper class NEX S' shadow but is still quite impressive in terms of specs. It has traded the NEX S' Snapdragon 845 chipset and 8GB of RAM for a Snapdragon 710 and 6GB of RAM but retains all the other excellent features of the NEX S like the ample 4,000mAh battery, 12MP + 5MP main camera, the pop-up 8MP selfie camera and the lovely 6.59-inch Super AMOLED display.

The NEX S didn't exactly have a flagship-grade camera though

NEX S has snapdragon 845, i would bet this one has a less capable camera as well.

But why though? This would cannibalize the sales of the NEX S!
