On June 19 OPPO has called the media in Paris to present its new flagship, a terminal that is set to be one of the best Android phones on the market, at least on paper.
But it will not be that the most striking mobile presented this month since the day 12 its sister company, Vivo, will also announce new mobiles.
Until now we believed that there would be a new model, the Vivo Nex that was inspired by the Vivo APEX that was presented at the MWC. Now there is new data indicating that an entire family will be presented.
Vivo Nex, Vivo Nex S and Vivo Nex A
The main mobile will be the Vivo Nex, a smartphone with high-end features among which the Snapdragon 845 stands out.
Vivo copies Xiaomi in one of its worst design decisions
Vivo's new mobile phone looks like a copy to Xiaomi. The position of the Vivo NEX's front camera is too similar to that of the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.
But just as Xiaomi has done, under the same name Vivo wants to present several models that will have a nearly borderless design in common and that will differ in aspects such as the processor, RAM or screen.
First data of the Vivo Nex S
One of these phones, the Nex S, will be a mid-range smartphone with a Snapdragon 710 processor, the same one used by the Xiaomi Mi 8 SE. It will have 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory and its battery will be 3320 mAh, carrying Android 8.1 Oreo as standard.
This model will have a 6-inch screen with FHD + resolution and apparently without a notch, although after what we saw with the Lenovo Z5 we cannot say anything until they are made official.
As for the cameras, this model will stand out for a front camera of 24 Mpx and a dual system of rear cameras of 20 Mpx and 16 Mpx that could be similar to those of the OnePlus 6.
We do not know if this variant will be one of those that will have the retractable front camera, something that we know will be seen at least in the higher priced Vivo Nex, but that we do not know if it will also be seen in this variable.
We have the same doubt about the fingerprint sensor since in the highest cost model it is expected to come on the screen while in the other two it could come behind.
