Chinese smartphone manufacturer Vivo has unveiled its most awaited Vivo Nex 3 and Vivo Nex 3 5G flagship smartphones in China.

The Vivo Nex 3 features a 6.89-inch Full HD+ Waterfall FullView curved display with HDR10 and 99.6% screen-to-body ratio. It is powered by 2.96GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus octa-core processor with Adreno 640 GPU.

Vivo has added pressure-sensitive keys on the right side that vibrate slightly when pressed and work even when the screen is off. If the pressure-sensitive power button fails to work for whatever reason, the Vivo Nex 3 has a tiny physical power button at the top edge of the phone to fall back on.

On the back, you’ll find a Lunar Ring Camera setup which packs three cameras. There’s a main 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor with f/1.7 aperture. It is accompanied by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 13-megapixel telephoto camera. Up front, the phone is equipped with a 16-megapixel selfie camera with an LED soft light in a pop-up mechanism.

It packs a 4500mAh battery with 44W ultra-fast charging. There’s also a Hi-Fi DAC inside for improved audio.
