The 5.99 inches screen is an IPS LCD full HD+ display with an 18:9 ratio. As the name suggests, it's the successor to Xiaomi's highly praised stock Android running device.

Riding on the success of the Mi A1 in India, the new phone also focuses on smooth software experience and camera prowess. It is powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset with an Adreno 512 GPU. The phone comes in two variants: NEX A and NEX S - we expect Vivo to only launch the topend NEX S in India because they're gunning for the premium market. It's 7.3mm thin and has a Mi A1 like aluminium chassis to assure a sturdy build. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The phone comes with Android One branding, meaning it will get updates frequently as compared to other Xiaomi smartphones. This places Xiaomi in a set of priority phones that receive the latest updates and security patches from Google.
