Vivo NEX 5 specifications

For starters, the Vivo NEX 5 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset. It’ll be interesting to see how much RAM and storage Vivo decided to throw in. Both versions of the phone will ship with a 6.78-inch quad-curved AMOLED panel. One variant will come with an under-display selfie camera and another with a hole-punch camera. A 32MP selfie camera module will be used on both models.

We can also expect it to feature Vivo’s Gimbal stabilization and optical image stabilization (OIS). Details about its remaining camera setup are unknown, but it shouldn’t be long before we find out.
