Vivo is arguably one of the most innovative smartphone makers on the market right now. The company pioneered the first true all-screen smartphone as well as the first under-screen fingerprint reader. Now it looks set to deliver the first smartphone with a 99.6 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Vivo has been slowly trickling out the leaks ahead of the launch of its NEX 3 all-screen smartphone. We already knew that it was going to be something special given it will be among the first to feature a new ‘waterfall’ OLED display with extreme curvature at the sides. Now, the Chinese company’s product manager has revealed that the Vivo NEX 3 will have an incredible 99.6 percent screen-to-body ratio. Even with more conservative screen-to-body measurements, Vivo believes there won’t be another smartphone within an arm’s reach for at least six months after its launch.

The virtually bezel-less Vivo NEX 3 will center on a 6.89-inch AMOLED display with under-screen fingerprint sensor. It will be properly flagship worthy in every other department as well. This means a Snapdragon 855+ SoC mated to 12 GB of RAM and fitted with 512 GB of storage. It will be ably supported by a large 4,500 mAh battery with 44 W fast-charging. The main camera will feature a 64 MP sensor supported by a wide-angle 13 MP sensor and telephoto 13 MP sensor for a triple rear camera array. The signature pop-up selfie camera will integrate to two 16 MP sensors, the second for groufies.

There won’t be much else to learn about the Vivo NEX 3 when it launches early next week. Of particular interest will be how Vivo has managed to stop accidental touches on the sides of the display from making the thing a nightmare to use on a daily basis.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
