Vivo Nex Global Launch Confirmed

Vivo launched the highly anticipated Vivo Nex last month. It’s the company’s first device that features a motorized solution for the selfie camera.

The handset was initially made available in China for roughly $700 and the company has now confirmed that it’s going to be rolling out this handset globally.
