It details some of the important specs we can expect from the Vivo NEX and floats the idea of a high-end variant carrying a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset with 8GB of RAM and a whopping 256GB of storage.

The front of the handset is expected to boast an edge-to-edge touchscreen measuring 6.59 inches, plus audio technology that vibrates the entire display to produce sound, similar to what Vivo did on the APEX concept phone. The translation likewise mentions the pop-up camera system that the company lifted from the APEX.
