Vivo launches its flagship smartphone with an elevating front camera, Vivo NEX, in India


In a press conference in New Delhi today, Vivo launched its latest flagship – Vivo NEX – in India.

The NEX sports an almost bezel-less display with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. The highlight of the smartphone is the world’s first elevating front camera that allows for a notch-free display. It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner that we first saw on the Vivo X21.
