Smartphones continue to be the most thriving device in history. Not because it’s packed with incredible cameras or exquisite design, it’s because it’s a reliable tool that can do it all wherever you go. Due to its popularity, tons of brands have joined the smartphone race. Aside from the well-known gigantic companies in the game, emerging brands like OPPO and OnePlus have become fan favorites. Each caters to their communities that seek specific things on a phone. But in the case of Vivo, the Chinese company has seen its NEX initiative evolved from an experimental concept to a status symbol.
A status symbol is a high order for almost anything. When you have luxurious items such as bags or watches, for smartphones, that could be the Vivo NEX 3. The newly announced smartphone that sells for P39,999 combines power and elegance in a package that screams nothing but luxury.
Vivo NEX 3 delivers top-of-the-line performance when it comes to handling the most intensive apps. The Snapdragon 855+ provides you the processing power you need, whether you’re crunching emails or playing a competitive game with friends. And with 8GB of RAM to use, expect a smooth-sailing experience across multiple apps. But what makes the phone snappy at all times is the 128GB UFS 3.0 storage. The ability to read/write at incredible speeds makes the phone breeze through everything you throw at it.
Sophisticated and Industry-leading Design
Aside from being a powerful device, the Vivo NEX 3 also doesn’t skimp on looks. Vivo’s latest flagship phone is sleek thanks to its Waterfall FullView display that extends to the sides. With more screen real estate and the lack of notch or pinhole, it boasts a 99.6% screen-to-body ratio to allow for a more immersive experience. As much as we love the display, we also can’t help but praise the Glowing Night color on the back. It’s a refreshing sight to see sophistication in the sea of multicolored hues. Additionally, it’s covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 — the toughest built-in glass for smartphones.
Vivo has also mustered the courage to deliver a nearly buttonless phone, allowing you to interact more with the screen. Instead of physical buttons, accessing the volume rocker and power options are done through X-axis Haptic Vibration and Touch Sense technology. It’s a futuristic approach to interactivity that’s pioneered by the under-screen fingerprint scanner.
Super Clear and Versatile Cameras
Of course, the Vivo NEX 3 can’t be called a status symbol if it’s missing one of the main reasons why people purchase a smartphone. The cameras on the Vivo NEX 3 can take super clear image quality while offering versatility to users. A 64MP main sensor lets you shoot incredibly sharp photos in the day and bright photos in the night. There’s also a wider field-of-view to share thanks to the presence of a 13MP ultra-wide sensor. And if you want to get up close and personal, the other 13MP lens delivers telescopic capabilities.
As impressive as all three sounds, the selfie camera isn’t to be left behind. The Elevating Front Camera makes use of a 16MP sensor that not only paves the way for beautiful selfies but a notch-less FullView display as well.
From performance to design, the Vivo NEX 3 delivered. It’s a powerful mobile device that carries elegance through innovative efforts. With trend-setting features providing a glimpse into the future of smartphones, Vivo NEX 3 has become a symbol of luxurious innovation. The phone will be available in the Philippines starting November 9 at all authorized Vivo outlets.
