Vivo Nex 2 With Dual Screens Spotted Online
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo launched the Nex S earlier this year with an edge-to-edge display and a fingerprint sensor. Furthermore, it was the first smartphone to have an electronically operated pop out front-facing camera. The combination of all these breakthrough technologies allowed the smartphone to turn a lot of heads. A recent leak suggests that Vivo is readying its successor called the Nex 2 with an even more intriguing feature. The upcoming smartphone will allegedly have dual displays. Another Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Nubia launched a similar smartphone with dual displays. The Nubia smartphone is called the Nubia X.
Two images of the alleged Vivo Nex 2 were spotted online with two screens, one on the front and one on the rear. The first image reveals that the upcoming smartphone has very thin bezels on all four sides. Furthermore, like its predecessor, it also has no cutouts for the front-facing selfie camera. The rear of the device has an additional, smaller screen, dual cameras along with an LED flash and a mysterious circular cutout for an unknown sensor. It is possible that the device skips on the front camera altogether. As the dual rear cameras can act as both the main rear camera and selfie camera.
The smartphone is running on Funtouch OS which is built on top of Android. However, the version of Android is unknown but the company might launch it with Android 9.0 Pie. Other essential technical details like processor and storage options are unavailable but it is expected to have better specifications than its predecessor.
