Alleged Vivo NEX 5 renders online leaks alongside the February announcement window

Alleged Vivo NEX 5: renders online leaks Rumors of a new live NEX device have been pretty sporadic, but they’ve also been on the rise lately, with some talk of the NEX 5 last month. the NEX 5 was supposed to have an under-display camera, like the APEX 2020 concept, a large 7-inches or 6.78-inches display with four curves and 40W or 50W wireless charging. A new leaked render has now surfaced online for what is claimed to be the Vivo NEX 5. To quote the leaker, it’s an “official first look”.

Sweetening the leak further, the image also mentions February 2022, presumably as a release window for the device. We’re willing to give the leak the benefit of the doubt, though we should note that the NEX 5 was supposed to release in the second half of 2021.

Either way, the rendering itself shows a clearly non-curved four-part design but has a more traditional screen curved on either side. The device pictured clearly has a traditional selfie camera rather than a selfie camera.

On the back, we can clearly see the text “50-megapixel GN1”, which is a reference to Samsung’s ISOCELL GN1 1.2μm 50-megapixel camera sensor. We can also see a periscope-style telephoto in the lower right corner. Previous leaks have suggested this will offer 5x optical zoom via the technology, courtesy of the joint effort between Vivo and Zeiss. A partnership was established in 2020.

There’s still no official mention of Vivo’s NEX 5, and we’re still a little clear on other hardware details as well.
