Camera experience on the Vivo Nex ₹ 33,371 S is also said to have improved through the new software update. The new update also adds support for a simultaneous connection between two Bluetooth devices. This means users would be able to use two Bluetooth speakers with the Nex S after updating to the latest software version.

To recall, the Vivo Nex S was launched in China alongside the Nex A back in June last year. The phone comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor and sports a pop-up selfie camera. It has been released as Vivo Nex in India and it is possible that the Android Pie update will soon reach here as well.
