Vivo NEX was an amazing feat of smartphone engineering which was launched last month. In fact, it won the Most Innovative Smartphone Award in the Mr. Phone Awards 2018. Later on in the year, the company decided to up the ante. Suspected to be the Vivo NEX 2, they launched the Vivo NEX Dual Display in China. The device comes with dual-screen design, similar to the Nubia X. Now, the company is said to launch a toned down version of it, making it affordable for the masses.
Vivo NEX Dual Display – Lite version?
As spotted by GizmoChina, Vivo is said to be working on a slightly affordable variant of the smartphone. Devices with model numbers V1820A and V1820T were spotted on TENAA. The models come with a 6.39-inch (1080×2340 pixels) AMOLED display on the front, and a 5.49-inch (1080×1920 pixels) OLED display at the back. This is similar to the Vivo NEX Dual Display already out there.
However, the changes take place under the hood. Here, the device is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC clocked at 2.2GHz. It will be paired with a whopping 8GB of RAM. As for the battery, it features a 3,425mAh battery. That is smaller than the 3,500mAh one sported on the regular Vivo NEX Dual Display. The camera setup will also be different. It is said to come with a 12MP+13MP+2MP sensor at the back. On the software front, it runs on Android 9 Pie OS with FunTouch skin on top.
Vivo NEX Dual Display lite version price and availability
As of now, there is no word on the pricing of the device. However, considering the fact that the device has already passed its certification, means the launch could be pretty soon. With CES 2019 just around the corner, Vivo could showcase the device at the event. Stay tuned to Mr. Phone for all the updates in the smartphone world.
