Update: Images of the handset went live just now and it looks like this is just another one of those budget phones in a long list of Vivo mid-range handsets. So, no, the model V1928A is not Vivo NEX 3. We’ll soon have more specifications which will give us a better idea of the possible identity of the device.
Vivo’s “Waterfall Display” smartphone with extreme curves is believed to be around the corner as evidenced by leaked screen protectors leaked last month in China. And speculation is rife that we will be seeing this cutting-edge full-screen design in the NEX series of Vivo. Speaking of which, a new model which could be the alleged Vivo NEX 3 has now been spotted on TENAA today with its partial specifications. We say this because the model number is V1928A which sounds like the next iteration of the V1821A which is designated to the Vivo NEX Dual Display Edition. The exact identity of the handset is not confirmed however we do have some of its specifications.
Coming to specifications, the Vivo V1928A dimensions are 159.43×76.77×8.92(mm) and it has a massive 4,880mAh battery. Also, the display size is mentioned as 6.35-inches. The listing is being populated right now so we don’t have more details at the moment. However, when we do have the images and detailed specifications, the exact identity of the device will be confirmed. Leaks doing the rounds in China also suggest another model number V1923A which is believed to be a toned-down model of the Vivo NEX 3 with Snapdragon 730.
The Vivo NEX 3 is rumoured to feature a screen-to-body ratio of above 100 percent, thanks to the steeply curved display. We’ve seen OPPO‘s prototype last month that gives us an idea of this super curved design. We’re also expecting Vivo to opt for an under-screen front camera to achieve a seamless notch-free all-screen design. It is also being rumoured that Vivo will get rid of all the ports and holes to achieve a truly seamless unibody design. Besides that, we can expect the phone to pack in top-notch internals such as the Snapdragon 855+, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and triple cameras on the rear. However, there’s no official word from Vivo as to its official launch date.
