It was predicted an entertaining December in smartphone territory and at the moment it is not disappointing. Today comes the turn of another mobile whose leaks gave us directly on the button of curiosity: the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition (and not Live Nex 2 as we thought).

The Vivo Nex that we saw earlier this year (and which opened series) was a different touch between both notch in order to find that infinite screen that many manufacturers seem to pursue, with a removable module for the front camera. But this year the idea is another: eliminate the need for the front camera and play everything with the rear , aided by a secondary screen.

The solution of Vivo for the screen is a second screen

The change began with the notch , continued with the removable modules and in the case of Vivo has continued with the double screen . A solution that eliminates the main limitation of this Vivo Nex module, which due to its dimensions could not contain the number of components that could fit in the OPPO Find X module .

What they have seen more practical is not to shield the front camera, but to eliminate it directly so that if you have to vitamin cameras only in the back. Although that of “back” is relative, by the game that give the two screens that integrates the Vivo Nex Dual Display and that reminded us a bit to the game of the ZTE Axon M , also with two screens and a single surface with cameras.

Although that of “back” is relative, by the game that give the two screens that integrates the Vivo Nex Dual Display and that reminded us a bit to the game of the ZTE Axon M , also with two screens and a single surface with cameras.

Thus, it integrates a front screen of 6.4 inches and resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels and a rear screen of 5.5 inches and resolution 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, smaller and aspect ratio of 16: 9. Both OLED , and in the case of the front with the integrated fingerprint reader.

Record power

We just met the OnePlus 6T McLaren and its 10 GB of RAM, but in a few hours the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition has come to tie with him at this level. Snapdragon 845 and 10 GB of RAM also for this peculiar flagship, although in this case the battery is somewhat larger (4,000 mAh).

A battery for which the 10-volt fast charging support is incorporated . And eye, that next to USB Type C there is an audio minijack.

Three rear, zero front cameras

As for photography, the new Vivo has a main camera with a sensor of 12 megapixels, a secondary of 2 megapixels and a third one with aperture optics f / 1.3 with the time of flight (TOF) module , which we already talked to comment on advanced facial recognition systems . The manufacturer explains that this “TOF 3D camera” allows for a secure facial unlocking system, in addition to intervening in beauty effects.

And the ring? The lunar ring, which is what they have called it, is decorative and relatively functional . It acts as a notification LED, being able to assign different colors to the notifications, as well as act as a diffused flash for the selfies when the light conditions demand an extra source of illumination. It can also emit pulses of colors to the rhythm of the music, in the style of speakers such as the JBL Pulse 3.

Price and availability of the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition

How did you want to sell this mobile with two screens at the moment? With utilities as punctual as questionable . As shown, in addition to self-portraits the two screens can be useful to have a joystick in one of them, or to play to have a mirror or a window.

Beyond the secondary screen, what captures the interest is that TOF sensor and if the true leap in photographic quality of the front cameras is “eliminate them”. But we’ll have to wait until we can prove it for this, so we’ll see if there’s an opportunity.

Live Nex Dual Display Edition 02

As for its price and availability, what I know is that it will be released in China on December 29 for 4,998 yuan (about 649 euros), so it remains to be known if it will be available outside of this country. For the moment the brand has not been pronounced in this sense, we will remain pending of what they can say.
