Starting with the wireless earbuds, many manufacturers have adopted the design introduced by Apple with the wildly popular AirPods and Vivo has added its own twist to it with slightly tweaked ear tips. Also, the black colour is a refreshing change from the sea of white earbuds seen lately. It is very likely that these will be targeted at premium users and be powered by Qualcomm’s latest QCC5100 Series SoCs that will help dish out a powerful audio experience. Vivo is using the 3.5mm headphone jack on the NEX 3 but still might bundle these earphones with the NEX 3.

As for the NEX 3 video, it gives us a good look at the black colour version of the phone. The Vivo NEX 3, apart from being the first commercial handset with the said “Waterfall Screen”, is also Vivo’s first 64MP camera handset. Official images shared by a company executive over the weekend revealed how Vivo has simplified the camera UX for users. Apart from these two stand-out features, the Vivo NEX 3 will likely boast of 44W fast-charging, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset, and a 4,410mAh battery powering a massive 6.89-inch AMOLED display with a pop-up camera.
