Chinese phone maker Vivo has been known to up the ante when it comes to smartphone designs, in the past few years.
Sometime last year, Vivo Nex popped up with a selfie camera slider that helped give the phone a bezel-free frontal design. The smartphone was a success given the presence of a unique design and premium specifications.
The company has since followed it up with the Vivo Nex Dual Display, which launched in China late last year. While the phone hasn't yet made its way into Indian shores, Killer Features got access to a unit and we decided to give you a closer look at how this unusual phone with two displays actually looks like.
For starters, the Vivo Nex Dual Display looks like a regular smartphone with the displays switched off. However, as soon as you turn on the primary 6.39-inch 19.5:9 display, you see that there is no notch and, thus, no selfie camera.
The need of a selfie camera is probably the biggest reason why Vivo put a second display on the back of this smartphone. It is a smaller 5.5-inch 16:9 panel which acts as a mirror to take selfie shots using the rear camera setup. Interesting, indeed!
Other than that, the second display seems quite redundant and 'extra', adding to the fact that it will end up consuming more battery than usual.
Vivo has not announced the pricing and availability details for India, because it is unlikely that they will launch the phone in the country. However, for reference, it is priced at CNY 4,998 or about Rs. 51,000 in China, and comes with 10GB of RAM.
