The NEX is vivo‘s latest flagship smartphone to hit Malaysian shores and in addition to a bunch of high end specs, this handset also features an in-screen fingerprint scanner and a motorised selfie camera that pops up. Want to know what’s in the box? We find out.
UPDATE: The vivo NEX has officially arrived in Malaysia at RM2,799.
Earlier this week, OPPO had finally introduced the Find X in Malaysia that comes with a retail price tag of RM3,699. This is OPPO’s new flagship after a long time and it comes with a sliding mechanism that houses both the front and rear cameras.
If you’re looking for another flagship smartphone that offers an all-screen phone without notches, the vivo NEX price has been revealed and it’s RM900 cheaper than the Find X.
The OPPO Find X with its revolutionary sliding camera mechanism will be arriving in Malaysia next week and vivo isn’t going to sit quietly on the sidelines. vivo Malaysia has just announced that they will be bringing in their latest NEX smartphone into our market and it could go on sale within the next couple of months.
What a year it has been so far since the last time we published our best smartphones under RM1,200 (2018 edition). We changed governments in a historic election nobody saw coming, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) is now zero-rated and, of course, a whole bunch of brand new affordable smartphones launched.
We thought about a simple update to our original guide, but because so much has changed, we figured it would be a disservice for you to just add the couple of new phones to the end of that one. Instead, we decided that it would be better if we gave the whole guide a proper face-lift, featuring the new updated GST-less budget smartphones, several brand new handsets and a revised Editor’s Choice section.
Here’s our ultimate budget smartphone guide Part 2.

vivo has just revealed the Y81, a FullView smartphone that’s big on screen with a smaller price tag. If the current vivo V9 is way above your budget, this could be an affordable alternative.

Just last month, Lenovo had started teasing their very own all-screen smartphone that’s called the Lenovo Z5. A lot of people got excited when Lenovo released teasers of the phone that doesn’t come with a notch. Turns out, the Z5 was just another typical “FullView” smartphone with a notch and everyone was fooled, us included.
If you’re still searching for a truly all-screen experience, vivo probably has the device you’ve been looking for. They have announced the vivo NEX and this is probably the closest thing to an all-screen bezel-less smartphone.
The X21 has finally arrived in Malaysia. This is vivo’s premium selfie-centric smartphone lets you unlock the device by touching the screen.
If the RM1,399 vivo V9 is out of your budget, here comes a more affordable alternative. vivo Malaysia has just announced the Y85 which also comes with a FullView display and a dual-camera setup at the rear.
