Vivo NEX 3 4G and Vivo NEX 3 5G are unveiled featuring a Waterfall DisplayAfter a ton of leaks and teasers, the Vivo NEX 3 5G has been officially unveiled together with its 4G sibling. The only difference between the two smartphones is that the 5G version arrives with a Snapdragon X50 modem for NSA 5G connectivity via two bands - n48 and n71. It also has a 5G logo on the back below the NEX logo. The Vivo NEX 3 4G lacks these two features and has a smaller capacity of built-in storage. All the rest is the same.

The smartphones arrive with a Snapdragon 855 Plus chipset paired to 8GB/12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for the 5G version and 8GB of RAM plus 128GB storage for the 4G version. Power is supplied by a 4500 mAh battery with a 44W fast charger. One of the most noteworthy features of the Vivo NEX 3 models is the 6.89-inch Waterfall Display with a Super AMOLED panel and an FHD+ resolution (1080 x 2256). These are some of the first smartphones to feature the 64MP Samsung S5KGW1 image sensor. On the Vivo NEX 3 devices, it is coupled with an f/1.8 lens. The main camera is accompanied by a 13MP wide shooter with an f/2.2 lens and a 13MP telephoto camera with an f/2.48 lens. An AK4377A audio chip makes sure users enjoy a quality audio experience.

Because the screen covers the sides of the handsets, the Vivo NEX 3 models do not have physical buttons but use Touch Sense instead. It mimics the touch of buttons providing haptic feedback that differs depending on the usage scenario.

Vivo NEX 3 5G costs CNY 5698 (8GB+256GB) while Vivo NEX 3 4G is priced at CNY 4998 (8GB+128GB). Both will go on sale on September 21st and currently, you can already pre-order them.Source
