Apple’s iPhone X set the bar rather high with its facial ID technology and also ushered in the trend of notch displays. It seems that smartphone manufacturers are now moving away from this design and are focussing on doing away with the notch. The Oppo Find X was the first phone to launch in India which featured face-unlock technology but without a notch display. Now, the Vivo Nex has officially launched and it also features a notch-less display and face-unlock technology. The smartphone will go on sale via Amazon at a price of Rs. 44,990.

The display on the Vivo Nex is a massive 6.59-inch panel with 2316 x 1080 px Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 19.3:9. The screen to body ratio of the smartphone is 91.24% which means that the phone sports ultra-thin bezels. The back panel of the smartphone has a sleek glass finish as well.
The Indian variant of the Vivo Nex will be running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. The Snapdragon 845 is a flagship chipset and has a total of eight Kyro 380 cores. This chipset will be paired with the Adreno 630 GPU.
The Vivo Nex has launched with a single storage variant option. The 128GB storage variant is paired with 8GB RAM.
Following the Oppo Find X, the Vivo Nex is the second smartphone to launch with a pop-up camera in India. The smartphone camera setup consists of a dual rear-facing and a single front-facing pop-up camera. The rear-facing camera has a 12 MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a 5 MP depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The primary camera is capable of recording 2160p and 1080p videos at 30 fps.
Apart from the face-unlock technology, the Vivo Nex also features an in-display fingerprint sensor. Powering all of this is a 4,000 mAh Li-Ion battery which should be enough for the smartphone to last an entire day.
The trend of the notch-display is more or less at its last stage and we’re beginning to see various companies find a way around it. Regardless, the Vivo Nex and the innovation it has brought to the table is a sign that the industry is moving forward.
