In March, Vivo announced the Vivo S6 5G, a lightweight selfie-centric phone with 5G support in China. Today, the company has taken the covers off the Vivo S7 5G in China. The device comes in as the successor to the Vivo S6 5G.

Vivo S7 5G specifications and features
The Vivo S7 5G features a glass back panel and has a thickness of 7.39mm. While most phones launched with dual selfie cameras this year have sported punch-hole displays, the Vivo S7 5G stands out from the crowd since it features a wider notch on its 6.44-inch AMOLED display to house the two front-facing cameras.
