The flagship Vivo Nex 3 is here and it boasts a notch-free waterfall display with the industry’s highest screen-to-boy ratio at 99.7%.
Vivo is able to do this by getting rid of the notch which usually houses the front-facing camera like in the case of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max flagship phones. This was achieved on the Vivo Nex 3 by switching to a snazzy pop-up front camera instead, tucking it away when not in use.
