vivo NEX 5 specs leaked, could have 5x optical zoom and 50W wireless charging


Back in October 2021, it was rumoured that vivo would finally unveil a successor to the vivo NEX 3 soon. The vivo NEX 5 is expected to launch within Q1 2022, but there hasn't been much news on the phone so far. Well, today we've got some tech specs to share.

Digital Chat Station seems to have gotten his hands on an engineering sample of the vivo NEX 5. According to the Chinese tipster, this device should come with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset. On top of that, it could be the first smartphone in 2022 to feature 5x optical zoom for its ultra-telephoto camera. It could also be a periscope camera.


In terms of features, the sample unit was allegedly waterproofed. It could also support 50W wireless charging, 80W wired fast charging, and an under-display fingerprint sensor. We also expect to see a 120Hz refresh rate Super AMOLED display, 32MP pop-up front camera, and 108MP main camera.

Mind you, the details above are unconfirmed, so take the news with a grain of salt. Having said that, what kind of improvements are you hoping to see in the vivo NEX 5? Let us know in the comments, and stay tuned to TechNave.
