After many leaks and rumors, Vivo is finally ready to introduce the Vivo S15 series in China. The new smartphones that are going to succeed in the Vivo S12 series are finally coming later this week. As usual, Vivo teases smartphones a few days before their release. Today, the latest teaser of the company comes to confirm the design of the upcoming smartphone. Vivo shared an “official render teaser image” today. Confirms that the upcoming Vivo S15 series will come with an aviation aluminum frame at the straight edge. In addition, the The tease emphasizes the design of the smartphone in blue.
In addition to the color and the aluminum frame, the company also confirms that the Vivo S15 series will have a curved screen on the front. Of course, we can not confirm whether this “premium design” will exist in both variants. But there is a good chance since the duo is advertised to have the same OLED screen. The panel has a screen with a curved edge of 60 degrees, while the corners are also more rounded.
Assumed Vivo S15 and Vivo S15 Pro specifications
According to previous leaks and TENAA listings, the base Vivo S15 will feature a 6.62-inch OLED display with Full HD + resolution. This panel will most likely have a refresh rate of 90 Hz or 120 Hz. Under the hood, performance will be more than adequate thanks to the still excellent Snapdragon 870 SoC. The phone will be accompanied by a 4,580 mAh battery with support for fast charging 80 W. The basic model will also have a thickness of 8.54 mm.
When it comes to the Vivo S15 Pro, this model will have a smaller 6.56-inch OLED screen with the same Full HD + resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. This device will be even thinner with a thickness of 7.99 mm. The Vivo S series always focuses on elegance and style, so it is not surprising to see the design of the device focus on thickness. The Vivo S15 Pro will come with a smaller 4,400 mAh battery with the same fast charge of 80 W. Honestly, we wonder what makes this device of the highest quality. The device is also rumored to come with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. So everything that “Pro” does is inside the camera section. According to reports, the Vivo S15 Pro has a Sony IMX766 50 MP sensor with optical image stabilization.
As mentioned above, the Vivo S15 series will be officially released later this week, more specifically on May 19th. The series will be released in the Chinese market, but we can see them reach the world markets very soon. However, they can become Vivo V25 series once they reach some markets like India.
The new smartphones will be available in blue, gold and black. They leave behind the wide notch solution in favor of a more fancy perforation. The duo of devices will be part of the Vivo S15e that packs the Exynos 1080 SoC.
