Vivo S5 is the beautiful midranger we have been waiting for

We have been expecting the vivo S5 for a while now, and the company has seen it fit to make the official announcement of a midrange unit which is just as great as they come.

Looking at the phone, one can see that the OEM went the way of design which they could have put on a flagship unit. Under the hood, though, using a Qualcomm SD 712 chipset proves that it is a midrange at heart. Coupled with that is 8GB of RAM on top of the Android Pie OS, featuring either 128GB or 256GB storage spaces for the user.

The build starts with a 6.44-inch bezel-less screen which uses a notch at the corner angle, much like we saw with the Galaxy S10e. This hole punch is home to the massive 32MP selfie snapper, promising some of the best front camera shots out there today.

The back of the vivo S5 is even more impressive, carrying four cameras in a diamond formation. A main 48MP snapper is followed by an 8MP shooter with a dedicated 5MP camera for depth. Rounding up the formation is a 2MP macro sensor for even better detailing.

Offered in colour options of Icelandic Blue, Phantom Blue and Star Black, a 4100mAh battery supported by 22.5W fast charging keeps the lights on.

Lest we forget, the phone will retail at around $385 for the 128GB unit, commanding an extra $42 for the 256GB pick.
