Vivo, a BBK electronics subsidiary, recently launched the S18e alongside two of its more capable siblings: Vivo S18 and S18 Pro. This smartphone comes with a capable MediaTek processor and super fast charging among other things. In this article, we will discuss the Vivo S18e in greater detail, including its specifications, expected price in Nepal, and so on.

Vivo S18e Overview

Design and Display

While both the Vivo S18 and S18 Pro have the same design, the S18e is an outlier. This is probably a move to differentiate the affordable option from the series’ more premium offerings. It has a circular camera island with two cameras and flashlights each enclosed by a metallic ring. Additionally, the Vivo S18e weighs in at 193 grams and boasts an IP54 rating.

We have a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen acting as the face of the phone. It is a 120Hz screen with FHD+ (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) resolution. It also supports the DCI-P3 colour gamut and reaches 1,800 nits of peak brightness. In the meantime, the Vivo S18e comes in three different colour options: Cloud Shabai, Xiaguang Purple, and Starry Night Black.


Under the hood, we have the MediaTek Dimensity 7200 chipset coupled with the Mali G610 GPU. This SoC is a 4nm processor with eight cores clocking in at a maximum of 2.8 GHz. Moreover, it comes in two configurations: 12 GB + 256 GB, and 12 GB + 512 GB. Herein the RAM is a dual-channel LPDDR4X unit while the ROM is a UFS 2.2.

On the software side of things, the Vivo S18e ships with the Origin OS 4 based on Android 14 in China. It also comes with Jovi, which a Vivo’s answer to the likes of Siri and Bixby.

Camera and the rest

In the camera department, the Vivo S18e boasts a dual-camera setup on the rear that comprises a 50 MP Sony lens for the primary shooter. It is assisted by a 2 MP blur camera, or in other words, a depth sensor. Meanwhile, we have a 16 MP camera on the front sitting under the hole-punch camera cutout.

It offers dual SIM, dual 5G, WiFi 6, Bluetooth v5.3, as well as NFC support for wireless connectivity. On the contrary, it only supports wired connection via USB 2.0 Type-C for both charging and audio output. Additionally, it offers an under-display fingerprint sensor for added security.
