vivo Nex could cost 849 euros, much more expensive than in China and India
- A new pricing leak suggests the vivo Nex will cost 849 euros (~$967) when it eventually launches in Europe.
- That price is significantly more than what the device currently costs in India and China.
- There is still no launch date for the vivo Nex in Europe (or the U.S.), but this pricing leak suggests a launch could come soon.
The vivo Nex wowed us all at Mobile World Congress 2018. Then known as the vivo Apex, the smartphone featured a notch-less display with extremely small bezels, an in-display fingerprint scanner, and a unique pop-up selfie cam.
vivo announced shortly thereafter that it would commercially release the Nex in select countries, which ended up being mostly focused on China and India with a few other countries thrown in the mix. However, the company promised the Nex would eventually launch in Europe, but we haven’t seen it there yet.
Today, a new leak gives us an idea of what the vivo Nex might cost when it finally does land in European countries (via MySmartPrice). According to the leak, the vivo Nex might cost 849 euros (~$967) when it launches.
If this seems pricey, that’s because it is. In India, the Nex currently retails for 44,990 rupees (~$652), and in China sells for 3,898 yuan (~$609). One would assume the Nex would cost around 650 euros (~$739), give or take — more expensive, yes, but not an enormous jump. However you slice it, 849 euros is a huge price jump.
Granted, this is leaked information and could be wildly incorrect. If it is legit, though, that’s an unfortunate pricing strategy from vivo.
Since we don’t have any official word on a price or launch date in Europe for the vivo Nex, we’ll have to wait until vivo makes an announcement. In the meantime, what do you think? Would you pay 849 euros for the Nex? Here in the U.S., would you pay nearly $1,000 for the device? Let us know your opinions in the comments!
