Vivo is selling its flagship phone the Vivo Nex – which originally costs costing Rs 44,990 – at just Rs 1,947 through an online flash sale. The device normally sells at a price of Rs 47,990. Vivo V9, another popular phone by the Chinese company is also selling at the same price under the Freedom Carnival Sale. Vivo will also be offering free Bluetooth headphones with the NEX, X21 and V9 handsets. Additionally, Vivo’s range of accessories, including its range of earphones and USB cables, will sell for Rs 72.
Flash sales like these last only for a few seconds due to the limited number of devices the companies put up. To avoid feeling disheartened we would recommend you to just try your luck and not go in with the conviction of buying the device.

Vivo NEX Specifications
Being a flagship device, the Vivo NEX comes with top-of-the-line firepower and sports a 6.59-inch Super AMOLED display that offers a Full HD+ (2316x1080) resolution. It is powered by a 2.8 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor and carries an 8GB RAM coupled to 128GB of internal storage. The device runs the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system with FunTouch 4.0 on top. It is backed by a 4000 mAh battery.
In terms of optics, the Vivo NEX sports a dual rear camera setup with a 12-megapixel and a 5-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 and f/2.4 apertures respectively. At the front, the smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel selfie shooter that is housed in a pop-up mechanism and hence is not seen on the device until called for through the camera app. As a result, the device also skips on face unlock and instead uses Vivo's proprietary in-display fingerprint sensor for security.
Connectivity options on the device include dual (nano) SIM, Bluetooth 5, Wi-Fi, USB Type-C ad OTG support. The smartphone measures 162x77x7.98mm and weighs 199 grams.
