vivo S12 launched with Dimensity 1100, Dual 44MP Cam

A more affordable vivo S12 was also unveiled with the launch event with a design quite similar to its Pro variant but with a twist – it not only ditches the curved screen but also comes with a much boxier design.

Its dimensions measure 157.20×72.42×7.39mm and its weight stands at 179g. The screen is a 6.44-inch 90Hz AMOLED with a 180Hz screen sampling rate.

The front cameras of the device are housed in a notch and come in a 44MP + 8MP setup. The rear cameras are near identical to the vivo S12 Pro, comprised of 108MP primary + 8MP ultra-wide + 2MP macro sensors.

A MediaTek Dimensity 1100 chip handles the processing needs of the device and it gets its juice from a 4200mAh battery, again with 44W fast charging support.
