Vivo S5 launch set for November 14th, rumoured to feature 64MP quad-camera setup

On: November 1, 2019

Vivo has announced that it will be introducing its latest S series smartphone called the Vivo S5 at an event in its home market of China on November 14th. The company’s teaser for the phone hasn’t revealed anything about the specifications of the Vivo S5. However, the rumour mill suggests that the handset could arrive as a mid-range offering with a quad-camera setup at the rear. Notably, the Vivo S5 was recently spotted in the hands of Cal Xukun, the brand ambassador of the Vivo S series in China, which suggested towards the presence of four primary cameras on the back of the handset.

Vivo S5 specifications and features

The Vivo S5 is rumoured to come with a 64-megapixel primary camera setup at the rear. The main sensor is said to be paired with three more lenses – an ultra-wide-angle lens, a telephoto shooter, and a depth sensor. These cameras are expected to be placed in a diamond-shaped module. Keeping up with the industry trend, the brand could utilise Samsung’s Bright GW1 64MP ISOCELL sensor on the Vivo S5. As far as selfies and video-calling are concerned, the device could offer a 32-megapixel camera on the front.

The Vivo S5 is said to come with a hole in the screen to house the selfie camera. The phone in the photo shared by Cal Xukun didn’t seem to have a fingerprint sensor at the rear, so its quite possible that the sensor will be placed under the screen of the smartphone. The handset is expected to feature a gradient finish at the rear, just like most of the recently launched smartphones from the brand. Unfortunately, there’s no word on the other specs or pricing details of the Vivo S5 at the moment.

In related news, before the Vivo S5, the company is reportedly planning to launch the Vivo X30 5G smartphone at an event in China on November 7th. Vivo and Samsung allegedly have a joint 5G AI media conference, where the Vivo X30 5G is said to be announced. The reports suggest that the X30 5G could be the first phone to sport Samsung’s Exynos 980 chipset with an integrated 5G modem.
