vivo reveals the NEX 3 in a video teaser

Yordan, 27 August 2019

We are expecting vivo to announce the NEX 3 with 5G and waterfall screen in September. While we are waiting for an official launch date and eventual release, the company posted a video on its Weibo page, revealing the phone’s looks.

It made its way to Sydney, London, and Seoul, and showed the world its huge screen, elevating selfie camera and triple shooter on the back.

The phone will have a screen with extremely curved edges and plenty of people are already adopting the Waterfall moniker for the tech. The back panel sports the NEX logo on the bottom and a circular camera setup on the top, which is made to resemble the design of a wristwatch for some reason.

From the second-long shot we see one extremely bright sensor, a regular camera and what looks like a depth sensor on the top.

The elevating selfie camera is not a new feature for vivo. However, this time the NEX will come with a dual-cam solution in a pop-up mechanism in the middle, similar to the vivo X27 Pro.

We are still waiting to hear from the company about specs like chipset, memory and everything else, but since the launch will happen next month, we won’t wait long for them.

So, a brand that sells 10 times more devices then Vivo, is dead? Right...

Nope. No IP rating with pop up cam. Under screen cam or nothing.
