After months of leaks, Vivo Nex 3 is finally released. As expected, the headline feature is its waterfull full view OLED display, which spills over the sides of the Nex 3 and has screen-to-body ratio of 99.6 percent. The 6.89-inch HD+ AMOLED display has very less bezels which leaves no room for physical buttons on the side of the phone. The screen resolution is 1080 x 2256 pixels. Instead, Vivo is adding virtual buttons called Touch sense alongside a port-less and button-less design we saw earlier this year.


The Nex 3 is one of the most advance smartphones today. Vivo is releasing two variants of the phone with 4G and 5G network support, both of which run on the same processing chip - Qualcomm snapdragon 855 plus. To keep the phone cool it uses a vapor chamber cooling system. The battery capacity is 4,500mAh and supports super flash charge 44W fast charging. As for the security, the phone uses in-display fingerprint sensor.


Vivo introduced a circular triple-camera module that Vivo calls the lunar ring. This house a 64-megapixel main camera with another 13-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 13-megapixel telephoto lens. Vivo Nex 3 has again used the pop-up selfie camera. Vivo hasn't said anything about the price factor and the device will be available in only selected country in Asia pacific and other markets. Connectivity options include Connectivity options include 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth v5, NFC, USB Type-C, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and GPS + GLONASS.

 



While Samsung had hoped to bring the world's first under-the-glass fingerprint scanner with the Galaxy S8, that plan didn't work out as the technology just wasn't ready in time. As a result, the Galaxy S8 ended up with the world's weirdest fingerprint scanner ever! Nevertheless, Samsung tried to incorporate it once again with the upcoming Note 8 and this time by working with a different company. However, reports are indicating that it didn't work out either and the Note 8 will sport a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, but in the middle thankfully! As it turns out, Apple themselves were not finding it easy to incorporate the next-gen fingerprint scanners either and rumor has it that there's no guarantee as to how the iPhone 8 OLED will be sporting its fingerprint scanner when it comes out later in the year.


Strangely enough, it's the Chinese manufacturer Vivo who is reportedly ahead of both the big guns and has already implemented the technology in one of their upcoming smartphones, which they are going to unveil in this very month (June 28) at the MWC Shanghai. I am really looking forward to this one, what about you?

Vivo is no longer just another Chinese manufacturer trying to copy Apple; as a matter of fact, it has not only risen as a global smartphone OEM to reckon with, one can go as far as saying that the Chinese company has managed to beat both Samsung and Apple when it comes to introducing true innovation. If you are wondering why anyone would think so, then you probably don't know that Vivo has already showcased the in-display, under the screen fingerprint scanner with its Vivo X20 Plus UD smartphone, that both Apple and Samsung have failed to do, even after repeated attempts by the latter in the last year or so. As if that was not impressive enough, take a look at the leaked shots of this smartphone from Vivo, which will likely be coming in with the in-screen fingerprint scanner and this gorgeous, truly bezel-less display.



Sources are unsure whether this is the Vivo Xplay 7 or not, but it could very well be. It would be really interesting to see if Vivo also packs in a 4K resolution in that beautiful display, just like the rumors had been predicting. If they do, that would make Vivo the only company apart from Sony to have a smartphone with a 4K display. It is quite possible that the upcoming Snapdragon 845 SoC will be powering the device as well, alongside an internal storage capacity of 256GB/512GB. Would you buy this beauty if it became available in your country?

Almost every week, we heard about new technology coming to the mobile phone industry but mobile chargers are usually the least-focused area of these manufacturers. While we are still a long way off batteries that can survive more than a day without a need to re-charge, we do have the next best thing - super fast charging. Now Vivo has announced super flash charge 120W charging technology that can fully charge a 4,000mAh battery cell in just 13 minutes. Yesterday, Vivo uploaded a video on the Weibo page that demonstrates super flash charge in action without providing much detail of the full charge cycle. In the video, the charging went from 10 to 14 percent battery in just 16 seconds.


So far we have seen Xiaomi 100w charging technology in March but it hasn't reached to the consumer market even after three months. OnePlus 7 Pro's warp has a fast charging speed but Vivo's super flash charge is really insane. But it does rise a question about its impact on the battery life in the long run. Vivo may unveil its super flash charging technology at MWC Shanghai next week with its first 5G enabled smartphone. The competitors may make claim about its negative effect on the battery but that's what we have to see.


The other concern about the heating problem. With xiamoi's charger we have seen this problem. How Vivo manage the over-heating issue, and will this kind of charger can sustain for a long period of time? So far, the fastest charger available is with Oppo Find X Lamborghini edition which fully charge a 3,400mAh battery in 35 minutes.

The pop-up camera has evolved and there is a dual-lens pop-up camera now to elevate the quality of the pictures taken by a smartphone. Vivo is one of the brands putting a great emphasis on the pictures taken by selfie cameras. The main sell-out pint for the new Vivo V17 Pro is a motorized dual-lens selfie camera and it looks great too. The phone falls into a midrange category which means it won't be costing you a lot to have this astonishing looking phone.


The phone as an unusual 20:9 aspect ratio with the 6.44-inch display on the front. This device is much smaller than the OnePlus 7T. The back of the phone is made from glass and may need a protector over the top. There is a quad-camera setup placed vertically at the top of the body. It uses a USB type-c charging connection. The phone is about 7 ounces and a bit heavier for 2019 devices.


The phone comes in a beautiful color crystal sky, which is similar to Huawei P30 Pro's breathing crystal color. It has a high-gloss finish which may attract more female users. Other colors include crystal black and midnight ocean. The pop-up camera allows Vivo to get rid of the notch, leaving the AMOLED screen with only thin borders around it. The selfie camera has a single 32-megapixel wide-angle lens, plus an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens. It takes good pictures, although the beauty mode is quite aggressive.


There are four lenses at the rear side- - a 48-megapixel primary lens, a second 8-megapixel ultrawide, a 13-megapixel telephoto, and a 2-megapixel depth lens. Along with wide-angle and bokeh mode, there is a macro mode, a slow-motion video mode, and a night mode to try. The edit features are also good, with changes to focus on the bokeh mode, different filers, and plenty more.

Vivo recently introduced the U-series of smartphones in India by launching the first Vivo U10. There has been a lots of hype around U3x before its arrival. Well, the Vivo U3x has now gone official in Vivo's home land and it appears to be a rebranded version of the Vivo U10 featuring the similar design and hardware specification. The main selling points of Vivo U3x are the device mega battery - 5000mAh, triple rear cameras, and support for Vivo's proprietary 18W dual engine fast charging technology.


The Vivo U3x comes in two variants for the base 3GB memory + 32GB, storage and the 4GB memory + 64GB storage model. The upper-end of the smartphone is now up for pre-order in china and available in deep lake blue, red tea red, and midnight black color options, with the first two has a gradient finish. Vivo has announced offers free accessories for early buyers. As of now, Vivo hasn't declared any date for the Vivo U3x in market.


The dual-SIM vivo U3x runs funtouch OS 9.1 based on Android OS. It has a 6.35-inch display with HD+ resolution at 1544 x 720 pixels. Vivo U3x runs over the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC paired with up to 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage. ivo U3x is equipped with a 5,000mAh battery with support for 18W Dual Engine fast charging, and also supports reverse charging for juicing up accessories such as Bluetooth earphones and fitness bands. However, the OTG cable needed for reverse charging must be purchased separately. Storage on the Vivo phone is expandable via a microSD card (up to 256GB). The Vivo U3x features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and also supports face unlock for authentication.



Vivo has apparently done what Samsung could not and Apple was only planning to. The famous in-screen fingerprint scanner which has so far eluded all devices till date, has been brought forth and showcased on a Vivo smartphone.


The Qualcomm fingerprint scanner which was put into effect at the show on a Vivo Xplay 6 prototype was announced earlier at the same show. It detects ultrasonic fingerprint signals through OLED displays up to 1200um and is more secure than any other fingerprint scanners that are available on smartphones at the moment. Check out the GIF image which we can now look at, thanks to Engadget.


The fingerprint scanner works underwater and doesn't care much even when your phone or your fingers are dirty. There are two points to be noted though. Engadget reports that the actual fingerprint recognition is much slower than what we are used to and also that the display was only able to detect the fingerprint from one particular place on the display. In theory however, the whole display should be able to detect your fingerprints flawlessly. Then again, this is just a prototype that we are looking at and things will definitely improve once the ultrasonic technology and the smartphone is ready for commercial release.

Since the smartphone is a budget phone, it has LCD HD+ display with a 720 x 1544 pixels resolution.


The Vivo Y3 has a water drop notch which features the selfie camera. The device has 6.35-inch screen with narrow bezels on all sides, leaving it a screen ratio of 89%.

It has been a long time since the rumours about Vivo's next gen flagship smartphone surfaced. In fact this news goes back to 2014 and at that time they were supposed to be one of the pioneers in implementing Snapdragon 810 SoC. Quite evident that it didn't happen and now Snapdragon 810 is no way Qualcomm's best chip. At the same time people are looking forward to the XPlay 5, which is supposed to be available from March 1. At this point one important feature has been changed to another - this device will be the first one to come with 6 GB RAM.


But, don't consider this as a rumor. This has been leaked from the AnTuTu 6 benchmark test and even though we don't see 6GB being mentioned clearly, the 162,610 points mentioned in the leak is close to 30K more than other devices available in the database. We are also not exactly sure whether 2GB of extra memory can result in such a boost. In addition to this, there is a banner which states that the XPlay 5 will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC and 6GB RAM. Also there are speculations about a 5.5 inch display too.


UPDATE: A tipster has revealed another piece of info about the Vivo XPlay 5 - this smartphone will feature Hi-Fi 3.0, which is most probably a cutting-edge audio processing chip, similar to rest of the Vivo devices like the X6 Plus.
