Vivo Nex is set to launch in India today. The smartphone that was recently launched in China as the world’s first phone to come with a motorised slide-out camera is now making its debut in the Indian markets. Vivo Nex is the rebranded version of the Vivo Nex S, which was launched alongside the Vivo Nex A. The smartphone features a pop-up selfie camera without taking any space on the front, therefore, allowing a bezel-less display without a notch.
