Vivo Nex S Specifications, Features
The Vivo Nex S is the premium model and features a Snapdragon 845 SoC, 8GB RAM, up to 256GB inbuilt storage, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The company claims the Vivo Nex S comes with the third-generation under-display fingerprint sensor that is claimed to be 10 percent faster with 50 percent improved accuracy.
Notably, there is no half-display fingerprint scanning tech, as seen in the Vivo Apex concept phone teased earlier this year. However, the device comes with the elevating or pop-up selfie camera, and thanks to this, the device has a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio.
The Vivo Nex S comes with a new UI called Energy UI with a Red colored theme.
