Vivo Nex 2 Dual Screen Smartphone To Arrive Soon

  • Vivo has officially shown off the Vivo Nex 2 dual-screen smartphone.
  • The phone features a large primary screen, and a smaller screen on the back.
  • Vivo’s phone also offers a triple-camera setup on the back.

We came across purportedly leaked images of the Vivo Nex 2 a few days ago, showing us a phone with a peculiar dual-screen design. We didn’t have to wait long for official confirmation though, as Vivo has released an official image of the device in all its glory.

The rear of the Vivo Nex 2 features a triple-camera setup on the top bezel (along with a strange camera hump). We don’t see any cameras on the front of the device, so you’ll likely need to use the triple-camera trio and second screen for your selfies. Hopefully the company is going for the normal/wide/telephoto setup, as seen on the LG V40 and Huawei Mate 20 series.

We don’t know much else about this new device, but battery life is certainly a concern when we see dual-screen smartphones. Hopefully Vivo either delivers great power-saving features for the second screen, or the phone packs a big battery.

Vivo Nex could cost 849 euros, much more expensive than in China and India

This isn’t the first dual-screen smartphone of its type we’ve seen this year, as the Nubia X was launched last month. The Nubia device features a second display that camouflages into the phone’s rear cover, making for a rather striking effect. Going back even further, we’ve seen the YotaPhone and Hisense A2 series, offering e-ink displays on the back for reading and other tasks.

It seems like the current trend of dual-screen smartphones is yet another alternative to the divisive display notch. We’ve also seen slider phones this year, delivering notchless displays while hiding earpieces, sensors and cameras on the slider mechanism. How long until we get phones with selfie cameras beneath the display?

Tesla China sales plunge 70 percent in October


Tesla Inc’s vehicle sales in China sank 70 percent last month from a year ago, the country’s passenger car association told Reuters on Tuesday, underscoring how the Sino-U.S. trade war is hurting the U.S. electric carmaker.

An official from China Passenger Car Association said data from the industry body showed Tesla sold just 211 cars in the world’s largest auto market in October.

Tesla did not respond to repeated calls and written requests for comment on Tuesday.

The electric carmaker, which imports all the cars it sells in China, said in October that tariff hikes on auto imports were hammering its sales there. In July, Beijing raised tariffs on imports of U.S. autos to 40 percent amid a worsening trade standoff with the United States.



While so-called new-energy vehicle sales have continued to climb in China, wider auto sales have slowed sharply since the middle of the year, taking the market to the brink of its first annual sales contraction in almost three decades.

Tesla, led by billionaire CEO Elon Musk, said last week it was cutting the price of its Model X and Model S cars in China in a shift in strategy to make the cars “more affordable” and absorb more of the hit from higher tariffs.

Tesla recently secured the site for its first overseas factory in Shanghai that will help it avoid the steep tariffs.
