The Vivo NEX has no display notch and merely a thin chin, as well as quite thin bezels on the sides. Dubbed Ultra FullView, the display is a 6.59-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED unit. The front-facing camera is placed onto an elevating mechanism that pops up when needed. Additionally, the Vivo NEX uses an in-display fingerprint scanner. As far as performance goes, the phone is boasting a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of native storage, and a hefty 4,000mAh battery. Photography has not been overlooked – a 12MP f/1.8 main and 5MP f/2.4 depth-sensing cameras could be found at the rear. Android 8.1 running beneath Vivo’s own Funtouch OS 4.0.
- Display size:
- Pixel density:
Pixel density – The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.
Technology – There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes.
Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed.
Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
- Screen-to-body ratio:
Screen-to-body ratio – Shows what part of the frontal area of a phone its screen occupies.
- Ambient light sensor, Proximity sensor
- 12 megapixels, Dual camera
- Aperture size:
Aperture size – The aperture of a camera is the opening through which light travels before it reaches the camera sensor. The smaller the number is, the bigger this opening is, allowing for more light to pass.
- Camera sensor size:
Camera sensor size – A bigger camera sensor is able to capture more light, and thus produce better photos.
- Pixel size:
Pixel size – The size of an individual pixel on a camera’s sensor. The bigger, the better.
- Hardware Features:
- Second camera (5-megapixel, F2.4 aperture), Sapphire crystal lens cover, Optical image stabilization, Autofocus (Phase detection)
- Video recording:

Biometrics – Features and sensors that replace a traditional PIN or password as means of identification when unlocking your device.
Hardware & Performance
- System chip:
System chip – Most modern handsets use an advanced chip that includes many of the device’s hardware modules like the processor, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and sometimes even the wireless radio. This field shows what particular system chip (or System-on-a-Chip) is used in the phone.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SDM845
Processor – The processor is the main computing component of a phone and is a major factor when it comes to the overall speed of the device. Some more powerful smartphones use dual-core and quad-core processors designed to deliver greater performance.
- Octa-core, 2800 MHz, Kryo 385, 64-bit, 10 nm
GPU – The graphics processor is important for the smooth operation of the system and especially in games and other applications that may involve complex graphics and animations.
Memory – System memory, or RAM memory is the type of memory that the device uses to temporarily store data from the OS or currently-running apps. The more RAM available to the device, the better the performance will be when multiple or heavier programs are running.
- Internal storage:
Internal storage – Bigger storage capacity allows you to keep more content saved onto your device, such as more applications, photos or video. Games and video content typically take up the biggest amount of storage space.
- Android (8.1 Oreo); Funtouch UI
Capacity – The bigger, the better! However, battery capacity is not the only factor that has an effect on battery life. Those include the chipset in use, the software running on the device, as well as the consumer’s unique usage pattern.
- Fast Charging:
- 850, 900, 1700/2100, 1900, 2100 MHz
- LTE (FDD):
- Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26, 28
- LTE (TDD):
- Dual SIM:
- SIM type:
- 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac, dual-band
- Mobile hotspot:
Mobile hotspot – Turns your phone into a Wi-Fi access point to which other Wi-Fi-capable devices can connect. These devices can then access the internet via your phone’s data connectivity.
- Mass storage device, USB OTG
Location – This field shows the positioning systems supported by the device. The most common types are GPS and A-GPS.
GPS – This is one of the most widespread global positioning technologies, developed and maintained by the U.S. government. It uses satellites in order to detect your location. Works best in clear weather.
A-GPS – A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization.

- FCC measured SAR:
FCC measured SAR – Working closely with federal health and safety agencies, such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the FCC has adopted limits for safe exposure to radiofrequency (RF) energy. These limits are given in terms of a unit referred to as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), which is a measure of the amount of radio frequency energy absorbed by the body when using a mobile phone. The FCC requires cell phone manufacturers to ensure that their phones comply with these objective limits for safe exposure. Any cell phone at or below these SAR levels (that is, any phone legally sold in the U.S.) is a “safe” phone, as measured by these standards. The FCC limit for public exposure from cellular telephones is an SAR level of 1.6 watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg).
