At the end of October, Nubia had launched the Nubia X dual screen smartphone. It features a bezel-less screen on the front and its rear shell is also equipped with a secondary screen. Fresh information shared a leakster from China reveals that Vivo is working on a dual screen phone. He has also claimed that it will belong to the NEX series of smartphones from the company. Through another Weibo post, the same leakster has shared the front and rear images of the alleged phone.
According to the leakster, the smartphone is internally dubbed as “more than one side of the future” and “extraordinary dual screen.” Since the tipster claims that it is equipped with Snapdragon 845, it does not sound like a successor for the original Vivo NEX which is also powered by the same SoC.
Like the Vivo NEX, the upcoming NEX phone from the company is expected to feature a 6.4-inch notch-less OLED screen on the front. It is expected to carry support for Full HD+ resolution.
The back panel of the phone could be fitted with an OLED screen. However, its exact size is not known. The smartphone will carry support for 22.5W fast charging, but there is no information on its battery size. The tipster has added that even though the rumored Vivo NEX phone is expected to sport a design similar to the Nubia X, it will be offering a higher screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone is speculated to go official in December. Apart from the aforementioned details, the leakster did not reveal any information on its other specs.
The images shared by the tipster reveals that the mysterious Vivo phone will be equipped with an amazing bezel-less display on the front that will offer an impressive screen space. The backside of the phone features a smaller display with Vivo branding below it. Above the secondary display is an LED flash followed by horizontal dual cameras setup and what appears to a laser autofocus module.
The Nubia X does not feature a front-facing camera, but the 16-megapixel + 24-megapixel dual camera setup can be used for snapping selfies by using the secondary display as viewfinder. Probably, the rumored Vivo NEX may feature a mechanical pop-up selfie shooter like the original Vivo NEX smartphone. However, the pop-up camera cannot be seen in the leaked images.
Since two displays on a single smartphone can strain the eyes of the user, the Nubia X is equipped with a dedicated that promotes for healthy eye habits. The mysterious Vivo phone with dual screens may offer such kind of feature to protect the eyes of its users.
