A few weeks back, Vivo secretly took the covers off the Vivo S7t smartphone. The handset arrived as the first from the brand to feature the Snapdragon 820 processor.
Meanwhile, a recent report claims that Vivo would announce the S9 series as the successor of the Vivo S7 lineup.
The report mentions that the Chinese brand may unveil a Vivo S9e smartphone alongside the standard Vivo S9 on March 6.
It appears the Vivo S9e would arrive as the second smartphone from Vivo to feature the Dimensity 820 chip.
The tipster mentions that the upcoming Vivo S9e would sport a 6.44-inch AMOLED display from Samsung.
The screen has a waterdrop notch that houses a 32-megapixel Samsung GD1 selfie sensor. And it supports a 90Hz refresh rate.
The rear panel packs a triple camera setup that consists of a 64-megapixel primary lens and two other cameras.
According to the tipster, the Vivo S9e would ship with the Dimensity 820 SoC alongside 8GB of RAM. The handset would offer the user 128GB / 256GB of internal storage.
It appears that the handset would house a 4,400mAh battery that supports 33W flash charging technology.
Speculations say the Vivo S9e could be the Vivo V2048A that surfaced on Geekbench in January.
The Geekbenh listing of the V2048A mentioned that it would feature 8GB of RAM, Dimensity 820, and Android 11 OS.
On Geekbench, the Vivo V2048A gathered 652 points and 2525 points in the single and multi-core tests.
However, the brand is yet to confirm the arrival of the S9 lineup. It is likely the firm releases a statement regarding the launch of the S9 series this week.
