In a press conference in New Delhi today, Vivo launched its latest flagship – Vivo NEX – in India.

The NEX sports an almost bezel-less display with a 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. The highlight of the smartphone is the world’s first elevating front camera that allows for a notch-free display. It also features an in-display fingerprint scanner that we first saw on the Vivo X21.

The Vivo NEX packs in top-of-the-line specifications with Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and runs on Android 8.1 Oreo.
