After a couple of generations of smartphones in which the race for the whole screen accelerated, thanks to the notch and then to the removable camera modules to ensure that all screen, Vivo Repeat attempt to take that screen-to-front percentage one step further.
He does it with him Vivo NEX 3, a smartphone in the highest range of devices that arrives, according to figures of the brand itself up to 99.6% of the front on the screen – in which there is probably a trick if you are taking into account the screen folded to the side -, which lengthens to nothing less than 6.9 inches diagonally.
Vivo NEX 3 5G, a return to the whole screen
The Vivo NEX 3 forget the second screen to leave the notch we saw in the NEX Dual Display presented now 9 months ago. It does so by retaking the well-known 'waterfall screen', which curves its edges at a much higher angle that ensures that even the edges are not visible from its front.
A screen like this is expected in the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, which is expected to be presented this week, so it could be the next manufacturers initiative to differentiate their models. Vivo adds 'Touch Sense', a more effective system to control and differentiate the gestures we make with our fingers with respect to the rest of phantom touches that we can do with the palms of the hand, which is also sensitive to the pressure on its sides, which Allows you to completely forget the side buttons.

This gigantic screen has OLED technology, although it still remains at a resolution that may not be as high. FullHD + or 1080p elongated for a panel that is very close to 7 inches It is more than likely that it will begin to show, as the Xiaomi Mi A3 already did, the characteristic defects of the PenTile matrix that it most likely incorporates.

The NEX 3 5G comes with the best processor that manufacturers can buy right now, the Snapdragon 855+. It turns out to be a slightly accelerated version on the reference model that achieves better performance in some aspects such as games.
There will be two versions of the terminal in terms of its amounts of memory. It will start from 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, rising to 12 GB and 256 GB respectively in its most ambitious version. In both cases, it will have the latest standard of UFS 3.0 storage, available only in Galaxy Note 10, OnePlus 7 Pro or Galaxy Fold.
Another trend of the still to present Mate 30 Pro is its round camera module, although in his favor he already made use of a similar system in the last edition. In it we find one of the first 64 MP cameras, being one of the first terminals to have this sensor, opening f / 1.8. A telephoto and a wide angle are added to complete the range of perspectives, both in 13 MP.
We also see a removable front camera, which remains at 16 MP due to the reduced space in this type of systems. It is a somewhat wider module than we have seen in others such as the Mi 9T or the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The terminal has 5G connectivity thanks to the Snapdragon X50 modem that we see in most terminals of this type, next to a huge 4,500 mAh battery to take care of that extra energy consumption that 5G still means. To compensate, it arrives with a fast charging system of up to 44 W.
