Vivo NEX 2 comes with three primary cameras including a 12MP primary Sony IMX363-based sensor, a 2MP secondary sensor and a TOF (time of flight) 3D sensor with an f/1.3 aperture. According to the company, the TOF 3D camera adds point-to-point distance measuring and it also secures the facial recognition that used in unlocking the device. The camera also adds personalized beautification to Vivo NEX 3, which also has support for Portrait mode and AR experiences. Having three rear cameras at the back and a secondary display means that one can click selfies from the primary cameras itself.
Vivo NEX 2 mobile is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor clubbed with 10GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. These internals make it one among the most powerful Android smartphones that can be bought currently.
