vivo NEX 3S 5G arrives with Snapdragon 865, UFS 3.1 storage

Ro, 10 March 2020

vivo just announced a successor of the vivo NEX 3 5G, although it's more of a minor refresh than a proper replacement. It's called vivo NEX 3S 5G and it becomes apparent even from the name itself that the changes are cosmetic.

The biggest upgrade is on the inside, where the NEX 3S 5G comes with a Snapdragon 865 chipset employing the 5G-capable Snapdragon X55 modem supporting NSA + SA. There's also a bump in the memory and storage speeds.

The memory is now LPDDR5 instead of LPDDR4X offering a 29% increase in bandwidth while the storage inside goes up to 256GB and is of the UFS 3.1 kind offering even better performance than the current UFS 3.0-powered smartphones.

We've got the same 6.89-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen with extreme curvature but this time supporting HDR10+ instead of just HDR10.

The camera setup is unchanged over the NEX 3 - 64MP main unit with f/1.8 aperture, 13MP f/2.5 telephoto and a 13MP ultrawide snapper with f/2.2 lens. The motorized pop-up unit houses the 16MP selfie camera along with an LED flash.
