Vivo Nex 5 could be a first step towards democratizing under-display camera Vivo Nex

Vivo unlike many other Chinese brands rarely gets involved in over-the-top marketing. It, however, is credited with introducing and democratizing various features including the in-display fingerprint sensor and a pop-up selfie camera.

Both these features were first showcased on a Vivo Apex – concept phone that was never launched publicly. The company’s later Nex lineup borrowed the innovative features from the Apex lineup. These features would gradually make their way to mid-segment and even to affordable devices.
