Vivo held an online event in China yesterday, where it launched two devices under the S series. In this article, we will be discussing the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Vivo S15 and S15 Pro in Nepal.
Vivo S15 Pro Overview:
Design and Display
Let’s start with the elephant in the room, the Vivo S15 Pro. It sports a 6.56-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED screen with a center-aligned punch-hole. The bezels around the screen are minimum, and the screen is curved at 60-degrees, giving it a premium look.
Furthermore, the screen has all the bells and whistles you would expect from a premium phone. It refreshes at 120 times per second and boasts a 300Hz touch sampling rate. Likewise, it has DCI-P3 coverage and HDR10+ certification.
Vivo has used AG Glass for the rear panel, which is less prone to fingerprint marks and smudges than normal glass. Likewise, you can also notice the “Mirror Cloud Window” style camera bump. The phone is available in two color options: Gradient Blue and Matte Black.
Performance and Memory
Under the hood, Vivo S15 Pro is the company’s first phone powered by Dimensity 8100 chip. It is a brand-new chip from MediaTek built on top of TSMC’s N5 (5nm) class. Vivo has paired the chip with the Pixelworks X5 Plus game-enhancing chip that will help in maintaining high and stable frame rates while gaming.
As for photography, Vivo S15 Pro features a triple camera setup headlined by the 50MP Sony IMX766V. It is a custom chip developed specifically for Vivo. It is a 1/1.56-inch sensor with an f/1.9 aperture and support for Optical Image Stabilization.
Accompanying it is a 12MP ultra-wide camera that the users can use for macro photography, too. The third sensor is a 2MP depth camera. Upfront, there is a 32MP camera for selfies and a 32MP selfie camera.
Battery and Charging
Vivo S15 Pro packs a 4,500mAh dual-cell battery with support for 80W fast charging. A compatible adapter can charge the device up to 70% in just 18 minutes and 100% in 35 minutes.

Vivo S15 Overview:
The main talking point of the Vivo S15 is its processor. Here, Vivo has opted for a custom version of the Snapdragon 870 chip called the Peak Edition. It is based on the same node and architecture as the vanilla Snapdragon 870 but features an additional VMET chip developed by Vivo. As per the company, this component will make the chip even faster.
Moving on, Vivo S15 features a bigger 6.62-inch display. However, it is based on the older E5 AMOLED technology. Still, it retains the 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification and can hit peak brightness of up to 1,300 nits.
At the back, Vivo S15 replaces the custom primary sensor of the Pro model with a generic 64MP sensor. Then there is an 8MP ultrawide and a 2MP depth sensor. Over on the front, it has the same 32MP selfie camera as its Pro sibling.
Likewise, Vivo S15 is powered by the same 4,500mAh battery but can only hit charging speeds of up to 66W. Still, the phone can go from 0 to 50% in 18 minutes.
