Recently, vivo officially announced that it will hold a “Future Unbounded” new product launch conference in Shanghai on September 16th, officially releasing the NEX 3 5G flagship with the new waterfall screen layout.
Today, the new phone’s official design images were released by Vivo on Weibo saying:
The future is unbounded. #5GSmart flagship NEX 3#, see you on 9.16 Shanghai
Previously, vivo NEX 3 5G has passed the Ministry of Communications network license where we can see the waterfall design for the first time.
From the official images, the biggest feature of the phone is that the screen curvature on both sides is extremely high, close to 90%, creating a visual and borderless effect. Because it looks like a “waterfall”, it is called a “waterfall screen.”Its screen-to-body ratio has reached an unprecedented 99.6%, which is the highest in any smartphone to date. Moreover, Vivo NEX 3 is also the world’s first phone with a waterfall display. Moreover, the forehead and the chin are extremely narrow which maximizes the screen ratio.
At the same time, because of the use of “waterfall screen”, the physical volume keys and power button on the side of the phone is canceled. Those will be operated via a pressure sensor with vibration feedback during the operation.
Concerning the specs, vivo NEX 3 5G will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, rear 64MP AI triple camera, a front lens with motorized lifting design while supporting 44W fast charge, and 5G networking.
