In the past few months, the Vivo Nex 5 has been the talk of Twitter and Weibo. The social media community has been keen to notice all the signs of the upcoming Vivo device. From posters to listings, the community has been able to come up with specs and designs of the upcoming device. This has however been aided by the posters showing the camera of the Vivo Nex 5 with a Hexa-camera setup which also suggests it will be coming soon. However, this poster turned controversial as it was posted on April fools, which led to questions if the Vivo Nex 5 was really just a joke or it would come to see the light.
As of now, we can confirm that the Vivo Nex 5 will be coming to the market soon with the most likely date being around 6 months from now(H2). It is expected to bring new features which we haven’t yet seen in previously launched smartphones. The most outrageous and awaited features being the under-display selfie camera, quad-curve display design, and a Hexa-camera setup. If at all, Vivo manages to squeeze all these features and more on the Nex 5, it surely will be a marvel in the smartphone community.
From the posters to leaks posted on Twitter and Weibo, we’ve managed to come up with almost all the specs of the Nex 5. Here’s what you should expect.
Vivo Nex 5 Roumoured Specs
The Vivo Nex 5 is rumored to feature a 6.78 inches OLED quad-curve display. Hopefully, it will have a Full HD+ screen resolution and a high screen refresh rate (unconfirmed). The huge display is also expected to house a 32 MP under-display selfie camera which is a feature most people are waiting to see. Pretty sure even the company’s rivals are watching from afar waiting to see if it’s real.
The phone will be powered by what is currently the fastest processor in the Android ecosystem, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 5G. With the Snapdragon 888, you can expect to see features like Wi-Fi 6, Adreno 660 GPU, Quick Charge 5, 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, USB Type-C, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, and biometric authentication.
At the rear camera section, the Nex 5 will have a Samsung’s GN2 1/1.12″ main camera (unknown MP) and a 50 MP ultrawide sensor with ZEISS optics. At the time of writing this article the type and megapixel size of the other cameras have not yet been revealed/leaked.
For the battery, the phone is speculated to come with a 4500 mAh non-removable battery. It will support 66W wired fast charging and 40W wireless fast charging. However, some sources have also tipped that it might have 120W wired fast charging which seems like a more sensible choice for me. To add to all these, the phone has an IP68 rating which means water and dust resistance.
NOTE; These are just rumored specs, some might turn out correct but some might be wrong. However, we will update you once others have been leaked and most definitely when the device has officially been launched.
