“The Vivo NEX imports in India have been discontinued”
The Vivo NEX smartphone has been discontinued in India as the company gears up to launch its next flagship phone V15 Pro in the country. Sources close to the matter told 91mobiles that the first phone with a pop-up selfie camera will not be imported into the country anymore. As for the current stock, Vivo is looking to clear the stock ahead, just ahead of the launch of the V11 Pro’s successor that will also have a pop-up camera for selfies and video calls.
The Vivo NEX was launched in the country in July last year at Rs 44,990. It received a price cut of Rs 5,000 earlier this month, bringing down the official price to Rs 39,990. In the recently-concluded round of e-commerce sales, it could be purchased for around Rs 33,000.
As we exclusively reported yesterday, the Vivo V15 Pro will be taking the position of the Chinese company’s mid-range flagship in India. It will have a 32-megapixel selfie camera that will feature a pop-up mechanism similar to the one we have seen on the NEX. The handset will also have an in-display fingerprint sensor, as will the Vivo V15. As for the price in India, the V15 will cost a little under Rs 25,000 while its Pro version will be priced between Rs 26,000 and Rs 30,000.
Coming back to Vivo NEX, the smartphone has a bezel-less and notch-free fascia. It has a 6.59-inch Ultra FullView display with full-HD+ resolution and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and support for microSD card for storage expansion. It has an 8-megapixel front camera and 12-megapixel + 5-megapixel dual camera setup on the back. Running on Android 8.1 Oreo-based custom UI, the smartphone has the company’s Jovi digital assistant onboard and a 4,000mAh battery.
