The Vivo Nex flagship, which is widely known for its fullscreen display design with a pop-up selfie camera and an in-display fingerprint reader, is expected to hit Russia, Malaysia, Taiwan, India, and Hong Kong by the end of the month. Sadly, its availability for other markets has not been confirmed yet.

Although Vivo is not a big name outside of China, the Nex flagship can help this Chinese brand gain a solid share in the high-end sector of the global smartphone market. Its strongest attributes are the design with a generous screen-to-body ratio of over 91 percent combined with a list of high-end specs, although it will also come for a price.

Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the Vivo Nex features an in-screen fingerprint reader, a selfie camera integrated into the body that pops up when it has to be used, a 6.59-inch display with 2,313 x 1,080 pixels, 8 GB of memory, and 128 GB or 256 GB internal storage. The battery is also quite generous, offering a capacity of 4,000 mAh. At last, we should also mention that this handset runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4 on top.

In China, the Vivo Nex retails for the equivalent of about US$700 for the 128 GB model and US$780 for the 256 GB variant. The next countries to receive it are Hong Kong, Russia, Malaysia, Taiwan, and India, where this unique handset is supposed to arrive before the end of the month (and will probably cost at least 10 to 15 percent more). Unfortunately, there is no word about its arrival in Europe or the US yet, but we will let you know as soon as we find out anything new.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
