Vivo has launched the NEX Dual Display Edition late last year. Actually, it was only last month the phone we first called as the Vivo NEX 2 was made official. We were fortunate to get a hold of the phone and do a comprehensive review of the device we described as one with a futuristic design, decent cams, and more. The smartphone made an impression with its 10GB RAM, 128GB onboard storage, and other premium specs. We’re not forgetting the triple rear shooters, secondary selfie display, and the faster and more accurate on-screen fingerprint scanner.
Now it seems we’re hearing the Vivo NEX Dual Display phone will have a lower-specced variant. By low specs, we mean just a less powerful version.
Instead of 10GB RAM and a Snapdragon 845 chipset, a new Vivo Nex Android phone model only runs on 8GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 710 processor. This information is according to some information sighted on TENAA.
The Chinese FCC is usually an indication a new mobile device is about to roll out. Being on TENAA means the phone is ready to be announced.
There is no confirmation by Vivo yet but the Vivo V1820A and Vivo V1820T hit the database recently. The specs of the two are almost the same but with different displays –a 5.49-inch OLED screen and a 6.39 AMOLED screen with 1080 x 1920 and 080 x 2340 resolution, respectively.
The new Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition variant is only powered by a Snapdragon 710 and 8GB RAM so that makes it a mid-range phone. The camera system is slightly different: 12MP + 13MP + 2MP.
No mention of phone availability but expect this to cost lower than the Snapdragon 845-variant.
