After Honor launched its new mid-range smartphone, Honor 30S 5G earlier this week, it was Vivo’s to make their move. And so they did. They have officially announced the new Vivo S6 5G. This device is the official successor to last year’s Vivo S5. The devices’ specs and features are quite comparable to that of the Honor 30S, thus, the price of Vivo S6 5G, if launched in Nepal, should be somewhat comparable too.
The Vivo S6 5G comes with a 6.44-inch AMOLED display panel with an FHD+ resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels. Going against the current trend, this device features the same old water-drop notch to house a 32MP selfie camera. With so many smartphone makers opting for a punch-hole display even in a mid-ranger, it would have been good to see the same on this one too. Nonetheless, we have to make do with the notch on the Vivo S6 5G. The display panel has a tall aspect ratio of 20:9 and as it has an AMOLED screen, it supports the in-display fingerprint sensor.
Moving on, the quad-camera on the back is arranged on a circular hump. Now, the design is akin to what we had seen on the Nokia 8.3 5G that launched last month. However, on this one, the cameras are arranged in a vertical alignment inside the circular hump. It consists of a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide shooter, 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor.
Under the hood, this device uses the Exynos 980 chipset similar to the likes of Vivo X30 and X30 Pro. You get a single RAM option of 8GB. However, the available storage options are 128GB and 256GB. The battery inside is a huge 4500mAh unit that supports 18W fast charging.
