Vivo's latest flagship device called the Vivo NEX is going to be unveiled in China on 12 June.

Reports have also said that along with the Vivo NEX there is also going to be a toned down version of the phone called as the NEX S (or even the NEX A).
The images, by mysmartprice, reveal the near bezel-less design of the device. As a matter of fact, the Vivo NEX is the mass production variant of the concept Vivo APEX smartphone showcased at MWC 2018.
