The NEX S achieves an impressive 91.24% screen-to-body ratio by saying a goodbye to the notch and having a tiny chin on the bottom. TheyvTh named it Ultra FullView Display and uses a 6.59-inch Super AMOLED panel with FHD+ (2316 x 1080) resolution and a unique 19.3:9 ratio.
More importantly, the display incorporates the cool in-display tech that we saw in the concept and the X21 UD. And since the panel takes up virtually all of the space on the front, the vivo NEX S brings the promised periscope-like camera with an 8MP sensor and f/2.0 aperture.
The earpiece has also been removed from its usual spot and has been replaced with a vibrating screen. vivo claims that the Screen SoundCasting Technology should deliver better-sounding bass and softer treble.
The device is powered by the Snapdragon 845 paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
The negative point here is that, it’s camera’s aren’t that good to compete with other flagships, at least on paper. The back sports a 12MP f/1.8 sensor paired with 5MP f/2.4 unit – a setup that has been recycled from the X21 UD.
Inside there’s a massive 4,000mAh battery to run all it’s hardware which can also quickly be juiced up, all thanks to the 22.5W charger included in the box.
