The dream of a mobile without frames. During the last few years we are seeing great strides in that direction. First came the screens, 18:9. After the arrival of the ‘notch’. The next step is now a little closer thanks to the new Live NEX. A terminal that it had already been filtering and provide us with a mobile large screen with mark ultra-small, without notch on the screen with the fingerprint reader built into the panel.
The Live NEX is not a small device, but your optimization is excellent. We have a ratio of the screen is theoretical, 91%, beating others such as the Galaxy S9 or the Essential Phone which until the date were the more compact devices to the screen that offered. Let’s see in detail what offers us this new Live-NEX, a device that will give much that to talk and we believe it may represent a turning point in this race by reducing the frames to the maximum.

The mobile ‘without frames’, without the ‘notch’ and with a fingerprint reader built into the display
The chinese manufacturer Vivo was already the first to offer a device with a fingerprint reader built into the display. It was the Live X20 UD and had the opportunity to try it out. With the new Live NEX presents to us a third generation of these fingerprint readers built in to the screen, with greater surface area and greater precision.
The Live NEX offers us a screen UltraView SuperAMOLED of 6,59 inches with FullHD resolution+ in a format 19.3:9. A panel surrounded with frames, but where the front camera is removable and does not occupy space in the front.
The ratio of screen theory Live NEX reaches 91% and the bottom frame occupies only 5 millimeters, although according to the estimates of their ratio, actual would be around 86%. That minimalist aspect is moved even the sound, where we find a technology to reproduce the sound via vibrations on the display screen. In this section, the Live NEX more powerful incorporates an amplifier SSM6322 to improve the fidelity of sound.
Up to 8GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 845
The Live NEX incorporates 8GB of RAM LPDDR4X along with the powerful processor Snapdragon 845, the same chipset that incorporate most of the ships badge in 2018. For the battery, Vivo adds 4.000 mAh with fast charging through the USB port type C.
I Live we offers two versions of the Live NEX. On the one hand we have a model with the Snapdragon chip 710 and 6GB of RAM, while the top-line will come with the Snapdragon 845, 8GB and models up to 256GB of storage, which can expand via microSD.
To improve performance in games, Live has teamed up with Tencent to offer its Live Game Engine. A mode of games to reinforce them that we have also seen in other devices and that in the case of Live also we will not lose coverage even if you are holding your mobile with two hands and get a 3D surround sound.
intelligent Assistant Jovi with physical button dedicated
FunTouch OS 4.0 is the version of software that comes on the Live NEX. A system based on Android 8.1 Oreo that comes with a new ui Energy UI and enters the intelligent assistant Jovi, able to recognize objects, to translate texts, recognition of scenes and the rest of the capabilities of artificial intelligence that we’ve seen in terminals as Samsung or Huawei.
The chinese manufacturer has placed much emphasis on the capabilities of your wizard Jovi to such an extent that the Live NEX features a dedicated button to activate it.
dual Camera rear and front camera drop-down
In the rear find a double chamber of 12+5-megapixel camera with a sensor IMX363, a lens of aperture f/1.8 pixel and 1.4 µm. In addition, we have auto-focus, dual flashLED and video recording 4K with optical image stabilization (OIS) of four axes. A section photo that will be powered by the artificial intelligence to identify scenes and apply effects such as the portrait mode.
But without doubt the most striking feature is its front camera. Not because of their characteristics, where we have a sensor of eight megapixels, but because of the way. The front camera will be hidden in the body of the device and we can roll it out to make the selfies. A mechanism that reminds us that we have already seen in the Bluboo S2, although in the case of the Live NEX seems much more advanced and accurate.
Versions and price of the Live NEX
The Live NEX will come in two versions, depending on its internal processor. Of time will only be on sale in China, although I Live is one of the sponsors of the World Russia 2018 and may want to take advantage of the pull-up for commercial distribution in most markets.
Its base price for the model with Snapdragon 710 is 3.898 Yuan, about 516 euros. Meanwhile, the model with the Snapdragon 845 will have a price of 4.498 Yuan, about 595 euros.
