Vivo S5 with Snapdragon 712 SoC, quad rear cameras goes official

14 November 2019 0

Vivo has launched the S5 smartphone with a decent set of specifications in China. Apart from the usual specifications, the device includes an unusual design, however, not too unusual to make a real difference. Vivo chose to put its quad cameras in a new type of module on the back. As evident, the three cameras reside inside that the diamond-shaped module and a fourth one is positioned outside the complete module. This is just another attempt by Vivo to distinguish the usual multi-cameras arrangement.

On the front, the Vivo S5 features a punch-hole which houses the selfie camera. The main highlight or indistinguishable attribute could be the small hole which is just 3mm in size. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner that reflects fingerprints in the same diamond shape available on the back. The Vivo S5 has a 3D glass back for a premium look and feel. The quad rear cameras include a 48MP primary camera along with an 8MP ultra-wide, 5MP portrait and a 2MP macro camera.

The Vivo S5 has a 4100mAH battery with 22.5W Vivo Flash Charge flash charging that lets you charge up the device to 50% in half an hour.
