After the X21 with an in-display fingerprint sensor, Chinese smartphone-maker Vivo has launched another innovative premium mobile in India. Say hello to Vivo Nex.

Debuting on July 19, new Vivo Nex is one of the very few phones in the market that can boast a true Ultra FullView screen, with 19.3:9 aspect ratio and no notch. It has a slightly thick bezel at the bottom, but everything else on the front panel is a fully functional display.

The credit goes to the Vivo engineers for pushing the boundaries in terms of mobile display development. In order to achieve an Ultra FullView screen, they have managed to incorporate motorized front-camera behind the screen.

When triggered for a selfie, it can pop up in less than a second and retract in no time.

Furthermore, the new flagship also comes with an in-display biometric sensor saving a good chunk of space on the front panel which is now completely dedicated to the screen.
