Vivo NEX 3 brings dual curved ‘Waterfall Display' to the fore

As a replacement for the removal of the buttons, Vivo has included a pressure-sensitive sensor and X-axis motor in the side of the phone. The Chinese smartphone maker is also releasing a 4G variant of the Nex 3.

In fact, the display curves so much that there is no space remaining on the edges for physical buttons, so the company had to create digital ones on the metal frame that rely on haptic feedback, a system which Vivo refers to as Touch Sense.

Like the previous NEX predecessors, the NEX 3 is all about its screen and specs sheet, it now has a near bezel-less 6.89-inch "Waterfall Fullview" 1080p display that boasts a staggering 99.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Moving on to the camera, the Vivo Nex 3 sports a massive 64-MP main camera along with a 13-MP ultrawide lens, and a 13-MP telephoto lens. On paper, the Vivo Nex 3 5G looks pretty impressive.

Vivo is calling the display on the Nex 3 as "waterfall" screen because the screen blends towards the edges as well.

The Vivo NEX 3 uses a combination of hidden sensors and a motor as a replacement for power and volume control hardware buttons. Powered by Snapdragon 855 Plus, Qualcomm's first 5G solution, and UFS 3.0 high-speed flash memory, NEX 3 5G provides top computing performance, smooth multitasking capabilities, ultra-high download speeds (over 1Gbps), ultra-low latency and robust network reliability. The pop-up front camera removes any need for a notch, a feature that other smartphone manufacturers - apart from Apple who appears to be using the cleft as a trademark - have been trying to eliminate for years. The phone has a 4500mAh battery with Vivo's 44W Super FlashCharge charging tech, and there's also a liquid cooling chamber. In-Display Fingerprint Scanning also allows users to step into their mobile world both instantly and safely. This phone offers connectivity options of Dual 4G VoLTE/5G, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, USB Type-C.

The Vivo NEX 3 is priced at ¥4498 (~$636).

The NEX 3 series come in Black and white colors and will be available in the coming months in Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and other markets. NEX 3 5G is equipped with 8GB/12GB+256GB storage and supports global frequency bands and NFC.

Also, the Vivo Nex 3 5G variant may not launch in the Indian market anytime soon, considering the lack of 5G services.

What you won't find on the Nex 3 is a display notch, which suits us just fine.
