Vivo NEX A is the cheaper variant of the NEX S flagship smartphone we reviewed earlier. Both devices were introduced together yesterday by Vivo as the company’s flagship for year. The NEX A is more affordable with its pop-up selfie camera and reduced specs.
You get just 6GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 710 powerful mid-range chip is on-board. The fingerprint scanner is now at the back, however, you still get the dedicated Jovi hardware button and the Screen SoundCasting Technology. Lets find out more.
In this article we talk about:
The NEX A is built with aluminium alloy just like the NEX S, it reflects light beautifully without the need of glass. The fingerprint scanner has found its way back to the usual position at the rear. The dual rear shooters are visible at top left corner in a vertical position, while the LED flash follows underneath.
Turning over to the sides, we can see the dedicated hardware button. This lets you activate Jovi and ask him anything through voice command. The device measures the same 8mm in thickness and is pretty heavy, weighing in at 199g overall as well. It’s available in only Black and Red colors, there might be other limited edition colors too.
Just like its bigger brother, the Vivo NEX A sports an Ultra FullView screen, this is a true bezel-less screen, the first of its kind. This means there’s no notch, no bezels, just a super tiny chin at the bottom. The screen however, doesn’t come with the in-display fingerprint scanner we saw on the NEX.
But nonetheless, it comes with the “Screen SoundCasting Technology”, emitting sounds from the screen. It features the same 6.59-inch Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 2316 pixels and 388 pixel per inch density. Dishing out a unique 19.3:9 aspect ratio and stretches up to 91.2% of the entire front.
Hardware and Software
The device derives its features from the Snapdragon 710 chip from Qualcomm, this was built on the same 10nm process technology as the 845, so power efficiency should be perfect. It packs 8-Cores of processor which clocks at a fast speed of 2.2GHz as well. The Adreno 616 graphics processor manages graphics.
Even though the RAM size has been reduced, you still get 6GB of RAM which is more than enough for heavy users. In the storage department, there is only one variant which is 128GB with no option to upgrade further. The Vivo NEX A runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4.
There is no difference in the camera department, it’s still equipped with the pop-up 8MP selfie camera which automatically elevates when you switch to selfie mode. The camera has f/2.0 aperture and it’s AI-powered as well. While at the back, there’s a combination of 12MP + 5MP cameras. The 12MP rear camera has f/1.8 aperture, 1/2.5″ sensor size, 1.4µm pixel size, Dual Pixel PDAF.
While the 5MP shooter underneath has f/2.4 aperture and will help out in portrait mode. There’s AI on board for Live Photos, Beauty mode, AI HDR, AR stickers. Vivo says it used AI techniques to improve scene recognition, HDR and photo composition. Other features include 4-axis OIS, phase detection autofocus, dual-LED dual-tone flash, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama. It can also shoot 4K videos @30fps.
Powering the Vivo NEX A is a 4000mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery with fast charging technology. With the fast charging feature, charging the battery from 0% to 100% shouldn’t take up to 1.8 hours.
