Vivo frontier technology creates the optimal 5G experience

NEX 3 5G brings industry-leading capabilities for powerful 5G connectivity and a secure network experience. This includes an upgraded antenna design which incorporates a 5G-6 antenna design, for enhanced signal in any scenario. Powered by Snapdragon 855 Plus, Qualcomm’s first 5G solution, and UFS 3.0 high-speed flash memory, NEX 3 5G provides top computing performance, smooth multitasking capabilities, ultra-high download speeds (over 1Gbps), ultra-low latency and robust network reliability. The dual WLAN Acceleration technology can use two Wi-Fi signal networks at the same time to greatly boost the network speed and facilitate smoother use.

To support 5G’s high energy consumption, Vivo has further optimized NEX 3 5G’s stamina and thermal conductivity. A 4500mAh battery gives users the fuel to go through their day feeling unrestrained, while Vivo Super FlashCharge 44W and C-DRX power-saving technologies ensure low power is a thing of the past. The Vapor Chamber Cooling System meanwhile supplies power while remaining cool even with heavy 5G usage. NEX 3 5G is equipped with 8GB/12GB+256GB storage and supports global frequency bands and NFC.

Breakthrough design including FullView™ display

The ground-breaking new Poled Waterfall FullView Display stretches the smartphone screen beyond limits with flawless curved edges that flow with sleek elegance. NEX 3 5G’s screen extends along two sides – the dual curved borderless design provides users with broader views and a more immersive visual experience. At 6.89 inches, the notch-free display has a significantly improved 99.6% screen-to-body ratio, providing consumers with a breathtaking visual experience.

NEX 3 5G also hides physical buttons from sight, creating a seamless, touch-controlled unibody design. With its X-axis Haptic Vibration motor, Touch Sense can respond with haptic feedback just like physical buttons for some functions, delivering a tangible, comfortable and futuristic experience. In-Display Fingerprint Scanning also allows users to step into their mobile world both instantly and safely.

Premier photo-shooting experience with triple camera setup

NEX 3 5G flexes its photography superiority with a 64MP main camera, 13MP wide-angle camera and a 13MP telescopic camera. Making super HD clarity as a standard for all photos, NEX 3 5G’s upgraded camera allows users to capture life’s splendor down to every last detail.

With a 16MP Elevating Front Camera, NEX 3 5G carries on the signature NEX style. Not only does it make way for the perfect FullView Display, it turns every selfie into a unique experience. A purpose-fit motor and customized gear box ensure smooth elevation that operates stably.

Artificial intelligence for various user scenarios

Vivo’s AI assistant, Jovi, has been upgraded to enable a fully intelligent flagship experience based on the Vivo Computation Acceleration Platform (VCAP). The platform offers AI algorithms for software optimization and enhanced user habit learning for deeper AI integration – providing an impressive speed boost with a personalized experience. Jovi also has upgraded applications, including Jovi Smart Scene, which supports users with daily tasks, and AI Video Editor, which enables users to relive their greatest hits using AI by cleverly identifying faces and moments from videos and using them to create highlight reels.

With VCAP, other AI-based tasks have also been upgraded – Jovi Image Recognizer is now faster and more accurate than ever before. It helps users categorize their albums, perform smart searches within them, detect scenes and group faces. It makes scanned documents look perfect, and much more.

The NEX 3 series will be available in the coming months in Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia and other markets.
