Oppo has officially launched the Oppo Find X in India on the 12th of July 2018, which is the first smartphone to launch in India with a popup camera and now, Vivo is all set for the launch of the Vivo NEX, the world's first smartphone with a popup camera in India. A leaked document (mostly with source code) confirms that the Vivo NEX will launch in India for less than the price of the Oppo Find X, which will also make the Vivo NEX, the most affordable smartphone with a popup camera in India.
According to the leak, the Vivo NEX is expected to cost Rs 48,990, which is almost Rs 11,000 less than the price of the Oppo Find X. Vivo does have an advantage over the Oppo Find X, as the Vivo NEX comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor and the Oppo Find X does not have a fingerprint sensor at all.
The leak also mentions that the Vivo NEX smartphone will be available exclusively on Amazon and the pre-order for the same will start from the 19th of July and the company will be launching the smartphone on the same day.
This is one of the best leaks that we have seen on any smartphone, as the leak does include the offers associated with the Vivo NEX smartphone.
