We can also confirm that the Nex 3 will have capacitive buttons, i.e. buttons that don’t physically click when you press them. The power button on the right side of the phone is designated by a grooved surface and the volume buttons are above and below that button. There is also a second power button on the top for those times when you need a power button on the top, I suppose.
The Vivo Nex 3 seems like a new superphone with pretty much everything you could ever want all in one package.
Next to that top power button, the Vivo Nex 3 unboxing video confirms the device will have a headphone jack. There’s a single speaker on the bottom of the device next to the USB-C port.
The display is the real star of the show, though, with most of the video’s runtime spent talking about just how amazing it is. It truly does wrap around the sides of the device in a way that makes it seem like it just keeps going, and the top and bottom bezels are razor-thin, seemingly thinner than even the OnePlus 7 Pro. This is likely the closest we’ve gotten yet to a device that is quite literally all screen.
On the back, we see a triple-lens camera arranged in a circular cutout. Mr. Whose The Boss is unable to divulge any of the specs related to the camera (or the device in general — he can’t even tell us the device’s physical dimensions) but the images he captures seem to be pretty crisp.
Interestingly, Mr. Whose The Boss mentions the pop-up selfie cam at one point in the video but doesn’t actually talk about it. He says he’ll “come to it in a second,” but then never does. So the selfie cam is still a mystery, although you can clearly see it popped out at the end of the video. From what we can tell, it seems like there are two cameras or possibly one camera with another associated sensor included in the pop-out.
One would expect a Vivo Nex 3 unboxing video to also show the accessories included in the box (hence the term “unboxing”), but Mr. Whose The Boss doesn’t cover any of that. The box looks nice, though.
The Vivo Nex 3 does seem like the kind of smartphone that has zero compromises, as you’re going to get fast 5G connectivity, an unbelievably cool display, a pop-up selfie cam, a triple-lens rear camera, and a headphone jack all-in-one. Are you excited about this phone? Let us know in the comments.
