vivo has announced another 5G midrange smartphone called S6 5G. The handset brings an AMOLED screen, four cameras, dual-mode 5G connectivity and a 4,500 mAh battery alongside Samsung’s Exynos 980 chipset which it shares with the vivo X30 and X30 Pro.

The vivo S6 5G is built around a 6.44-inch AMOLED display of FHD+ resolution (2400 x 1080 pixels) with a waterdrop notch where we find the 32MP selfie cam. The panel comes with a tall 20:9 aspect ratio and features an in-display fingerprint reader.

Around the back, there’s a circular hump which houses 4 cameras. The 48MP main camera is paired with an 8MP ultrawide shooter, 2MP macro snapper and a 2MP depth helper.

The Exynos 980 chipset has 8GB RAM and 128/256GB storage. The battery has 4,500 mAh capacity and support for 18W fast charging. On the software front, we find vivo’s Funtouch OS 10 based on Android 10.
