Reputed leaker Ice Universe tweeted an image of what might very well be the Vivo Nex 3 design. The Nex 3, if the photograph is correct, boasts an intriguing form factor with extraordinarily curved sides, finally resulting in a device with the “highest screen-to-body ratio” we’ll see all year.
“The Vivo NEX 3 might be the highest screen-to-body ratio phone in 2019,” the tweet notes. “The Screen-to-body Ratio is over 100% based on the “display area/projected area” calculation method.”
Now as to how taking selfies would work on the system, recall that the original Vivo Nex S included a clever design featuring a camera module that popped up from the back of the gadget. In essence, the front-facing camera is there when you want it and completely inconspicuous when you don’t. It admittedly sounds a bit on the market, but reviews of the gadget found the pop-up camera to be surprisingly robust and quick.
Is it potential that the pop-up camera design is an answer to an issue that doesn’t really exist? Of course, however, that’s beside the point. In a smartphone market where units are seemingly indistinguishable from each other, it’s nice to see an organization try something creative, if not a little bit “out there.”
All in all, Vivo has made plenty of interesting moves within the mobile space in a comparatively short period of time. Simply last month, for instance, the corporate unveiled a tool with 120W fast charging. It’s mind-boggling by each measure and, to put that into context, the battery technology would be able to totally charge a premium smartphone in just 13 minutes and reach a charge of 50% in just five minutes.
