After launching the Vivo Nex in China, the company had sent invites for the launch of its flagship device in India on July 19. Now, ahead of the launch, the device has been spotted on Amazon, revealing that it will be priced starting at Rs. 48,990 and will be sold as an Amazon exclusive in India.
The report by MySmartPrice has revealed that the company will launch the premium Nex S variant in India and not the Snapdragon 710 powered Nex A. Additionally, the device will be named as Vivo Nex, instead of Nex S.

Apart from revealing the price of the device, the leak has also revealed that the device will be available to pre-order on Amazon India starting on July 19 at 1 PM.
