New alterations of the vivo NEX have been popping out left and right. Just the other day, a second vivo NEX S version appeared in a Geekbench score sheet with Snapdragon 710 and got certified a day later. But now, a Chinese 3C certification report lists one more model dubbed as NEX A.
Unfortunately, the listing doesn't disclose anything overly specific about the three devices - only that they support fast 5V/2A, 9V/2A and 10V/2.25A charging over USB-C. We can assume that the NEX A variant will be a China-specific device while the NEX S and the full-fledged NEX version will go global.

The latter is expected to go for less than $800 but, of course, it's all just rumors for now.
The devices will be launched at an event in Shanghai on June 12 so stay tuned for the official unveiling.
