Rumors are confirmed with Vivo and his new mobile (although strictly there are two) presents a screen that lives up to that aspirational expression of “infinite screen” by showing very narrow frames and pulling curvature on the sides. Thus, the new Vivo Nex 3 and 3 5G repeat formulas in terms of design, leading even more to give prominence to the panel.
In fact, the screen comes to eat the space that would occupy the physical side buttons, for which the manufacturer has implemented a solution that manages to further differentiate the design of your mobile. With a model for 4G connectivity and another one already thinking of 5G, this is the iteration of this striking family of mobile phones from the Chinese manufacturer.

“Cascade” screen and goodbye buttons
The screen is one of the features that most attracts the attention of these terminals, since we hardly see any frames on it. An AMOLED panel of no less than 6.89 inches with FullHD + resolution (2,256 x 1,080 pixels), although perhaps it achieves a certain level of compaction (speaking of these diagonals) with such reduced frames.
In fact, Vivo once again pulls its Nex series to achieve maximum use of the front and the figure that promises us in this case is 99.6% of the surface used by the screen. Be it like this or have a trick, this is achieved thanks to its screen with curvatures (which seems similar to the waterfall we saw from OPPO), with which they also promise a reduction in energy consumption of 7%.
The most we see in Android phones at the component level
Inside these Vivo is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, which can be compatible with 5G coverage as in the Nex 3 5G model (the brand clarifies that the model supports the 5G NSA). As for the memories, from 8 to 12 GB of RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage (UFS 3.0) we see in this Vivo mobile.
To prevent heating the Vivo Nex 3 incorporates an induction cooling system that is only available precisely in the 5G model. Interesting also that these phones incorporate dual WiFi antenna with which you can connect simultaneously to the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz band of the WiFi, or to the WiFi and the mobile network to always use the most powerful, designed for when the mobile detect that the signal strength decreases.
Although we lack the data about the total dimensions, we do know that the volume of the terminals gives for a considerable battery. This is 4-500 milliamps / hour, with a 44-watt ultrafast load.
The ring for the triple rear camera and a front camera that comes to convenience
What they have followed is that characteristic ring design for the rear cameras that we already saw in the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition. A ring that surrounds the striking triple camera module, which absolutely stars this surface by having a fingerprint reader integrated into the screen.
This triple camera consists of a 64 megapixel sensor for the main camera, accompanied by a 13 megapixel wide angle lens with 117 degree field of view lens. The third camera is a telephoto lens that also integrates a 13 megapixel sensor, so there are several zoom combinations.
Another “tradition” is followed for the front camera: that of the removable module as a periscope. This was one of the main attractions of the Vivo Nex, in a way anticipating all the flood of mobiles that have opted for equivalent systems of OPPO, OnePlus, Xiaomi and other manufacturers. This module hides a 16 megapixel sensor in addition to the flash.
Price and availability of Vivo Nex 3 and 3 5G
At the moment we know the availability data for Asia and the Pacific, so we will have to see in the future if it goes to the rest of the markets and at what prices.
