Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition Review – Release Date, Price, and Specifications

Another smartphone from Vivo has now been officially revealed named Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition in Australia, China, India, and all nearest regions – coming up with more screen and beefier hardware. When Vivo meant more screen, they literally did. It’s equipped with 2 screen – 6.39-inches all screen panel at the front and smaller 5.5-inches 16:9 screen outback.

The selfie camera from Nex Dual Display has gone in favor of capturing images with your loved ones with its rear triple camera configuration – using a secondary display. Other features are said to be fully-baked such as Face and Body Contouring.

It’s also having a Lunar ring outback around the camera lenses which emits light for notifications or pulse during music listening. Though it’s not all about the gimmick, the company has added a whopping 10GB of RAM and Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Chipset as well as FunTouch OS based on Android Pie 9.0. Let’s find out more in our Vivo Nex Dual Edition review below.

Release Date and Price

The Vivo Dual Display Edition release date in Australia isn’t decided yet – however, it’s most likely that users will start getting their hands on one somewhere in the first quarter of 2019. In China, though, it’s all set to be landed on shelves on 29 December 2019.

Design and Display

At first glance, Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition looks quite similar to its predecessor as the front of the handset is dedicated entirely the bezel-less screen. And outback, there is an entirely different story. Featuring a second, smaller screen with bumpy bezels.

These bezels do a lot more as compared to giving you a place to hold, though – the top bezel is home to its triple camera configuration. Luckily, Vivo as promised, pull off its biggest smartphone looking hokey – very much like other Dual Display Phones, we have already seen.

Display-wise, it’s having a 5.5-inches Full HD Super AMOLED screen on the back so looks like a normal phone on both sides. That obviously refutes a need of front-facing camera as a rear screen provides what you need to capture selfies with rear cameras.

And out front, there is 6.39-inches screen based on Super AMOLED Technology with a 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution. According to Vivo, with an improved screen to body ratio of 91.63%, it’s offering a notch-free and dazzling viewing experience to users. That much screen-to-body ratio rivals Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and Honor Magic 2.


As it’s backed by dual screens, there is one piece of pervasive hardware missing from a smartphone. It’s missing a front-facing camera. Yes! Well, you don’t need a front camera on a smartphone – since it’s having a rear-display for selfies. Comprising a 12MP primary camera, alongside a secondary 2MP camera and there is also a 3rd lens with an aperture of f/1.3 with a TOF 3D Module.

Hardware and Battery

The Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition comes with almost everything one would want from a flagship smartphone. It’s sporting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Chipset alongside a hefty amount of RAM – 10GB. The storage comes in at a paltry 128GB which is expandable no further.

The battery life is expected to be a tad disappointing for you as it ships with a 3500mAh non-removable battery which is quite smaller as compared to its predecessor – even though it’s having 2 displays. Fortunately, it has 10V fast-charging over USB-C.

Software and Others

Onto software, you are going to get latest and greatest Android 9.0 Pie OS. There is company’s own FunTouch 4.5 OS skin running over Android which is actually making an overall user experience quite marvelous.

Now special features include dual screen, obviously, a major special feature but in addition to being great for selfies, a rear screen comes with some other interesting uses. According to Vivo, the rear screen can also be used a rear touchpad for gaming which sounds a great idea, isn’t it?

As mentioned above, there is a Lunar Ring, one of the most prominent and versatile features which can be used in different scenarios. For instance, it can emit a soft glow to help you get a perfect selfie or it can change colors in order to give you different types of messages.
