Vivo NEX S Puts iPhone X and Galaxy S9 to Shame with These Innovative Features (In-Display Fingerprint Scanner and Pop-Up Selfie Camera)


Even though Samsung and Apple are the two companies which are expected to innovate the smartphone industry, a tech company by the name of Vivo is putting everyone’s flagship to shame with its latest Vivo NEX S.

The new Vivo smartphone is not something that you would expect to see from a Chinese tech manufacturer since it’s packed with so many innovative features that it overshadows the likes of Galaxy S9 and iPhone X. The smartphone has been recently unveiled and everyone is talking about it. With that said, today we are going to see what makes Vivo NEX S so special.

Vivo NEX S

The first thing we need to mention about Vivo NEX S is that it’s not an ordinary flagship smartphone. What we mean by this is that Vivo NEX S is packed with an innovative pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint scanner, and a huge 6.59 AMOLED display.

Samsung and Apple fans were expecting to see these features installed on the latest Galaxy S9 and iPhone X, but Samsung and Apple weren’t able to develop them which shows us how exactly how impressive Vivo NEX S really is.

Huge Display

All flagship smartphones are equipped with huge bezel-less displays, but they all pale in comparison with Vivo NEX S. This smartphone is equipped with a massive 6.59-inch AMOLED panel that offers an incredible screen-to-body ratio.

To make things even better, Vivo NEX S doesn’t feature a top-notch display which means that it offers a better media viewing than iPhone X.

Removed Phone Earpiece

As crazy as this sound, Vivo NEX S doesn’t ship with a phone earpiece. The reason why Vivo decided to remove the phone earpiece is that it didn’t have any other options because the bezel-less screen is just way too big. However, the Chinese tech giant came up with a brilliant idea to replace the classic phone earpiece because it installed a vibrating exciter underneath the screen. Therefore, the entire display acts as a speaker.

Pop-Up Selfie Camera

Vivo NEX S sports a dual camera setup made from a 12MP and 5MP sensor on the rear side. While this camera setup might not be impressive by any means, Vivo NEX S makes up for that with the cool looking pop-up selfie camera.

Taking selfies with Vivo NEX S is going to feel just like watching a Star Trek movie because the 8MP selfie camera rises from the top of the smartphone while making a cool audio cue. The camera needs less than a second to lock into place, and the engineers who were in charge of creating this feature have stated that they opened the selfie camera for more than 50,000 times without any issues.

In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

Apple shook the smartphone industry when it removed the classic Touch ID button from iPhone X and opted for facial scanning technology instead. While this might be impressive, Apple was initially expected to install a fingerprint sensor beneath the display, but for some reason, Apple wasn’t able to do this. Samsung also tried developing this technology but to no avail.

On the other hand, Vivo didn’t have any problems equipping Vivo NEX S with an in-display fingerprint scanner that works without any issues. However, we do need to mention that Vivo NEX S doesn’t ship with face scanning technology.

High-End Hardware Specs

Just like you would expect from a flagship smartphone, Vivo NEX S is equipped with high-end hardware specs. The smartphone is fueled by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 845 CPU which is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage space.
