vivo recently unveiled the NEX Dual Display Edition, a high-end smartphone that was intended to drop the craze around notch by forgoing a front-facing camera altogether, instead outfitting the rear of the phone with a screen too – so you can use the main camera system for selfies as well.
Now it seems the company is busy working on a slightly cheaper version of this handset – which feels familiar because that’s what it did earlier in the year with the NEX S and NEX A. The “NEX A” model of the NEX Dual Display Edition will be powered by the Snapdragon 710 chipset, coupled with 8GB of RAM.
The camera system is different too – the cheaper model gets a 12 MP + 13 MP + 2 MP setup. The new phone will have a 3,425 mAh battery. It measures 157.19 x 75.3 x 8.09mm, and weighs 200.19g. It will be available only in gold.
Everything else about it seems to be shared with the NEX Dual Display Edition. It’s unclear when the new device will become official, but it should happen soon, now that it’s already certified for sale in China by TENAA.
