Besides the notch screen, there has been another trendy feature in the smartphone industry. Starting the beginning of this year, the gradient effect has become a mainstream for many top brands. However, not all smartphone vendors switch to it. Recently, we published an interesting article, comparing a few top-end smartphones with a gradient back panel. Among them, we can mention the Huawei P20 Pro that started this trend, the OPPO R15, the Honor 10, and the VIVO X21. Apart from these high-end smartphones, there are a few second-tier brands launched their own models – the Umidigi Z2 and the Elephone A4 Pro. Moreover, recently the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro was out, joining the party. But VIVO, which is among the top smartphone brands worldwide, doesn’t like to lay behind. So it decided to come in with a different approach. The VIVO NEX Star Trail Edition (simply, VIVO NEX Star Version) with a gradient body is already out. So we are offering to take a look at its amazing design and get acquainted with the key features. It’s priced at 3998 yuan ($583).
The VIVO NEX Star Trail Edition adopts a blue-violet gradient design. Actually, blue and purple have always been a symbol of fashion. Therefore, these colors are very popular among young users. Based on clear insights into current fashion trends, VIVO launched the NEX Star Trail Edition in a timely manner.
It is reported that the design of the VIVO NEX Star Trail Edition is inspired by the meteor shower at night. Using the holographic illusion technology and the nano-scale high-precision laser engraving process, the blue and purple are reflected in the tens of thousands of illusion diffractive units on the back, presenting a dreamlike blue on the back of the phone and providing a purple gradient effect.
At the same time, under the illumination of the light source, the blue and purple lines of the VIVO NEX Star Trail Edition flow from the upper right corner to the lower left, as if the continuous meteor shower has passed from the horizon.
