A stylish new mid-ranger has been launched, and it’s called vivo S5.
The vivo S5 is powered by the Snapdragon 712 SoC that’s paired with 8GB RAM. It boots Android Pie-based Funtouch OS 9.2 and comes in two storage options – 128GB and 256GB.
The S5 is built around a 6.44-inch 20:9 Super AMOLED display that promises a screen-to-body ratio of 91.38%. The display boasts a 2400×1080 pixel resolution and has a fingerprint reader underneath for biometric security.
The screen also has a punch hole in the upper-right corner for the 32MP selfie camera.
Moving on to the back, we get quad cameras arranged in a unique diamond formation. The setup is a combination of a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 5MP depth, and 2MP macro units.
The cameras on the S5 come with a super beauty algorithm and a poster correction feature which includes 144 poses to help you pose better in front of the camera.
The vivo S5 is offered in Icelandic Blue, Phantom Blue and Star Black colors, and packs a 4,100 mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging support.
