What makes the phone so special is the bezel-less design. There is no display notch as the front camera has been cleverly hidden away as a pop-up camera. We are doubtful that vivo Malaysia will bring in the mid-range SD710-equipped NEX-A to the local market. Consider that it might confuse the consumers and cannibalise the NEX-S’s sales

What makes us wonder, that vivo was the first to showcase the pop-up camera concept, for some reason, OPPO manage to snatch the chance for earlier local launching (happening on 17th July).

Stay tuned for more updates on the vivo NEX’s pricing and official specifications.
