Upcoming vivo NEX might cost over $1000

vivo is launching a retail version of its APEX Concept Phone on June 12. The phone will have almost 100% screen-to-body ratio with the selfie camera likely hidden in the top bezel, appearing like a periscope when the camera app is launched.

According to an image from a retail store in China, the phone is going to be powered by Snapdragon 845 and cost dearly – CNY6,998 or nearly $1100.

The hand-written board also says there will be a cheaper variant of the vivo NEX without the high-tech camera solution. It will cost CNY4,998 ($780) but will have the Snapdragon 710 chipset.

Keep in mind that a post of a hand-written message on a Chinese social media is not the most reliable source, so the final prices could be different.

The company is apparently ready for the launch of the phone, as it is already issuing advert posters around shopping malls in China. A photo revealed the new phone is likely to be out of this world and to have breakthrough technologies.

If the device is anything like the APEX Concept phone we saw back in Barcelona, it will also have an in-screen fingerprint scanner across the whole bottom half of the display and a dual camera setup on the back.
