vivo NEX 2 leaks with secondary screen and three cameras on the back

Yordan, 26 November 2018

First it was the vivo NEX with a slider selfie shooter, then in a week, Oppo Find X arrived with all cameras tucked in the pop-up mechanism. ZTE’s subsidiary nubia got rid of any moving parts and just slapped a secondary display on the back of the nubia X in the quest to have both bezel-less display and good quality selfies.

It appears vivo really liked this idea, because a photo leaked on Weibo, suggesting a NEX 2 is on its way with one screen on each side. And on top of that, it is also likely to have three cameras on the back.

By adding a second display, companies essentially remove the need of selfie shooters. You can video call people or take selfies with the rear screen, while stick to work and entertainment on your huge front panel.

It is way too early for specs, but the phone will most likely have Snapdragon 845 chipset. If vivo is going all-in, then we should also expect 8 GB RAM and plenty of storage. The main display appears to be similar to the 6.59” AMOLED panel on the vivo NEX S, while the secondary seems to have 16:9 ratio in order to make room for the three cameras on top and vivo logo on the bottom.

why put a logo if you can use the 2nd screen and make an animated logo? customer's preference if they want something deifferent for the back logo as mine would just be like a snake or a galaxy spinning or that shooting star meme of a fidget spin...

It does have a case specially designed for it like Nubia X. How does having dual screen translate to higher possibility of dropping it? *smh

I liked the original NEX solution better.
