Update: Vivo has officially announced this:
Yes, it’s a smartphone that comes with a Pop-up camera, I talked about it 4 months ago (Article below).
They chose the name — NEX, a smartphone that comes with a screen-to-body ratio of 91.24 percent, and most importantly, doesn’t come with a notch!
As far as specs are concerned you get a Snapdragon 845 processor, 8GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, 256GB of storage, a 6.59-inch 1080p+ OLED display, a 12MP main camera with an amazing f1.8 aperture along with a secondary 5MP lens. The pop-up selfie camera is 8MP and it also comes with an earphone jack.
Well, a lot! About $780 (N280,000+) type of a lot. There’s also a cheaper model with a Snapdragon 710, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

Vivo is not strange to launching new technologies for their phones—recall that they were the first to launch an in-display fingerprint sensor—now they have taken it a step further by launching a concept phone called Apex which uses half of the screen as an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The phone itself comes with a 6-inch screen with a near bezel-less display.
The frame around the face is so slim, about 1.8mm, that there is no room for the front-facing camera. To solve this dilemma, Vivo has introduced a front-facing camera that literally pops up from the phone’s edge
Asides from having a camera that pops, Vivo has also included a vibrating audio that vibrates to create sounds for your videos, calls, and gaming. This is somewhat similar to the sound techniques used in the Xiaomi Mi Mix, but Vivo calls its version SoundCasting
The company only revealed a couple of specs which can be seen below:
- A 6-inch screen
- 2,160×1,080 resolution
- 8-megapixel front-facing camera
- In-screen fingerprint reader
- Dual rear camera
- Hi-Fi audio chip.
What do you think of Vivo’s latest concept phone? Is it something you’d love to buy?
