Vivo announces the upcoming launch of their new NEX 3 model in Singapore on 2 November 2019. NEX 3 combines Vivo’s latest breakthrough innovations and redefines the standard for flagship devices for consumers looking for an outstanding premium mobile experience.
The new POLED Waterfall FullView Display stretches the smartphone screen beyond limits with flawless curved edges that flow with sleek elegance.
NEX 3’s screen extends along two sides, and the dual, curved, borderless design provides users with broader views and a more immersive visual experience. It is 6.89 inches with a notch-free display that significantly improved screen-to-body ratio of 99.6%.
Additionally, the display’s multi-scenario ambient light on the screen’s edge has a music rhythm recognition and unique notification reminders. For example, when users play music or when calls are incoming, an ambient light show can take place.
NEX 3 also hides physical buttons from sight, creating a seamless, touch-controlled unibody design. Thanks to its X-axis Haptic Vibration motor, Touch Sense can respond with haptic feedback just like physical buttons for some functions. In-Display Fingerprint Scanning is also available.
Triple Camera Setup
The NEX 3 comes with three rear cameras:
- 64MP main camera
- 13MP wide-angle camera
- 13MP telescopic camera
The phone also includes a Portrait Master Hyper-HDR of up to 7.65eV – designed for portraits, it increases dynamic range accuracy between a user’s face and the background’s lightest spot, to ensure that the focal point stands out against backlight. In addition, the Pro Mode gives users full control over their camera functions and allows them to experiment with their photography.
NEX 3 has a 16MP Elevating Front Camera.

NEX 3 provides competitive computing performance and smooth multitasking capabilities with the following specifications:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus

- 4500mAh battery
- FlashCharge 22.5W

NEX 3 also boasts The AK4377A independent audio chip that claims to deliver the quintessential Vivo Hi-Fi experience.
Software – Vivo’s AI Assistant Jovi
Vivo’s AI assistant Jovi has been upgraded again on NEX 3, enabling a fully intelligent flagship experience based on the Vivo Computation Acceleration Platform (VCAP).
The platform boosts hardware performance, from CPU, GPU, DSP to NPU. It also optimizes AI algorithms, increasing the efficiency, speed and smoothness of all AI features while consuming less power.
With VCAP, AI-based tasks have been upgraded. Jovi has several upgraded applications, including Jovi Smart Scene which supports users with daily tasks, and Jovi Image Recognizer, which 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, making scanned documents look perfect, in addition to much more.
