Vivo NEX to be sold exclusively through Amazon in India, pre-orders start from July 19

Chinese smartphone brand Vivo launched the Vivo NEX S in China last month. And now, it’s all set to launch the Vivo NEX S in India on July 19. However, just like Vivo launched the X21 UD under the X21 moniker in India in late May, the NEX S will also be launched under a different moniker in India – it will simply be called NEX. The Vivo NEX will be sold online exclusively through Amazon in India, and, its pre-orders will commence from July 19 starting 1 pm.


The page for Vivo NEX on Amazon India is already live, and, it has details about the Vivo NEX as well as the offers available for the customers. The page also hints at the price of NEX being somewhere between ₹40,990 and ₹49,990, however, the India price of Vivo NEX already last week, which is ₹48,990.

The Vivo NEX comes in two storage options – 128 GB and 256 GB – and, according to the Amazon India page, the NEX will only be available in 128 GB storage option. The price that leaked last week is also for the 128 GB variant. However, Vivo might launch the 256 GB storage variant as well in the country, considering other brands have also launched 256 GB storage variants of their flagships.

The Vivo NEX can be pre-ordered through Amazon India from July 19 to July 25, which means the smartphone will go on sale in India from July 26. Having said that, apart from the usual offers, customers also have the chance to get a cashback of ₹1000 on their purchase of NEX along with a 6-month extended warranty.
