Vivo has been in the Indian smartphone market for quite a while, however, only in 2018 was the company noticed by the industry properly. While Vivo has been a forerunner in the offline retail market, this year, the brand redefined itself with a few firsts. Vivo showed off the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint reader and also a phone with a popup front camera. All this was done to allow the front of the phone to become display focused. The Vivo Nex was shown off as a prototype at the Mobile World Congress 2018 this year, a phone that was to show off future technology. It seems, however, the future is only moments away from the grasp of the audience.
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.
