Vivo finally launched the most awaited successor of the Vivo NEX. However, it is named as Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition and not Vivo NEX 2 as expected. The device’s USP is its dual displays which is completely different to the ones found in Yotaphone and Meizu Pro 7. Also another spectacular feature of the smartphone is its 3D TOF stereo camera.

Unlike its predecessor, the Vivo Nex Dual Edition doesn’t have a pop-up selfie camera.  The presence of the secondary display eliminates the need of the selfie camera. However, it doesn’t mean that the Chinese manufacturer have given up on that design style and we may see another model in first half of 2019 with pop-up camera design.

As for the specs, the primary display is a 6.39 inch Super AMOLED bezel-less screen with a resolution of HD+ (2340 x 1080 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19:5:9. It is almost devoid of bezels and comes with a high screen-to-body ratio of 91.63%. The secondary display is of 5.49 inch and is of Super AMOLED quality. It has a resolution of FHD (1920 x 1080 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 16:9. Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with 10GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
