In March, Vivo announced the Vivo S6 5G smartphone. Now, reports have it that the company is planning to announce a smartphone to succeed the S6 5G.
The Vivo S-series is a quite popular smartphone in China for no other reason than its attractive design and its selfie-camera capability.
According to rumours, the smartphone Vivo has in works is to be named the Vivo S7 5G. It is expected to launch as a lightweight selfie flagship in its home country.
Recently, a leak revealed that the upcoming Vivo S7 5G smartphone would feature a thin selfie camera module. The lens will have the largest aperture when compared to other selfie-paramount phones.
On Weibo, a tipster shared some details about the Vivo S7 5G. He mentioned that the smartphone would feature a 44-megapixel dual selfie camera system and a 64-megapixel triple camera system on its rear side.
He further stated that the Vivo S7 5G is going to arrive with the same display as the OPPO Reno4. The Reno4 sports a 6.43-inch AMOLED display with an in-screen fingerprint sensor on its front-side. On the top left corner of the screen is a pill-shaped cutout for the dual selfie camera setup.
The dual selfie camera system on the Vivo S7 5G device will be led by Samsung’s GH1 44-megapixel sensor followed by an Hi846 super-wide 8-megapixel shooter.
The triple camera system on the phone’s backside is made up of a GW1 64-megapixel primary camera from Samsung, a Hynix Hi846 8-megapixel super-wide lens, and a 13-megapixel portrait camera.
The company is yet to disclose other details about the S7 5G. However, we expect the device to borrow some of the specs on the Vivo S6 5G.
The tipster also mentioned that the Vivo S7 5G will arrive in China in two storage variants;
- 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage – 2,998 Yuan (~$430)
