We’ve been hearing about the vivo NEX 3 5G for quite some time, and now we know when the rumors will end and the official unveiling will take place.
It is scheduled for September 16 in Shanghai, China and that’s when we’ll see how much the new flagship will cost and how much more expensive will be its 5G variant.
While we don’t know where the NEX 3 will position on the market, we know pretty much everything else. The phone appeared earlier today on TENAA with Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, 8 or 12 GB RAM, up to 512 GB storage (though the microSD slot is missing) and three cameras.
The triple setup on the back will be in a circular module and will come in a 64 MP + 13 MP + 13 MP combo. The selfie is in an elevating mechanism and will be 16 MP.
The phone is everything you might want from a flagship, but it will also arrive with extremely curved edges of the screen, a technology that Oppo calls “Waterfall screen”. Whether or not it will impede proper usage with its touch capacity we are yet to see when the phone arrives in two weeks.
Agreed. The lack of IP68 is a deal breaker for me too.
Yeah. A flagship phone with no IP rating and breakable moving parts. No thanks. Move the front camera under the screen with no notch or hole punch and then we will talk.
