Vivo has finally launched the Nex A and Nex A, under its new flagship series “NEX”, embodying the “next” era in smartphone technology. It’s the first true bezel-less smartphone that features an industry-leading 91.24% screen-to-body ratio and there is no notch.
Vivo has moved the selfie camera and traditional earpiece speaker to different positions. The camera hides inside the body which pops-up every time users want to take a selfie, while the earpiece speaker has been replaced by ‘Screen SoundCasting Technology’ which turns the screen into a speaker.
Another interesting feature is the fingerprint sensor which is placed under the display.
