Vivo launched the company’s latest Vivo NEX smartphone in India.

It is powered by Snapdragon 845 and runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with Jovi AI and Funtouch OS 4.0. It has third-generation in-display fingerprint sensor feature. The company says that this technology is smaller, and more powerful offering 50% better accuracy and the unlocking speed is increased by 10% compared to the predecessor. It has a metal frame and comes in Star Diamond Black color that uses holographic technology.
It has dual rear cameras, the primary is a 12 MP camera with Sony IMX363 sensor, 4-axis OIS, and the secondary is a 5 MP camera for AI portrait shots with auto scene detection.
