Meet the Vivo Nex Dual Display Edition, a phone designed with two screens in mind. The phones features two Super AMOLED displays, a 6.4-inch on the front, and a 5.5-inch on the back. There's no pop-up camera, instead, it has three cameras, a 12-megapixel, 2-megapixel and a time-of-flight shooter. It'll cost 4,998 yuan -- about $725, £575 or AU$1,000 -- and will be available from Dec. 29.

Because it has no notch, the phone has all about the full-screen experience.

Like the first Vivo Nex, the Dual Display Edition also features an in-screen fingerprint reader, only this time it's a lot quicker.

I tried out the Lunar Ring in the dark and it surprisingly does a good job of illuminating my face.

If you're trying to unlock the phone from the front though, you can only use the in-screen fingerprint sensor.

There are three cameras on this phone, a 12-megapixel, 2-megapixel and time-of-flight (TOF). The TOF camera is used for AR and measuring distances and for helping you get the perfect selfie, according to Vivo.

There are two side buttons that double up as a power button or Vivo's Jovi assistant button. Pressing both together flips the screen.
