Well, they can, when they want. Short, easy to remember name. And a smartphone that is not a copy of any of the previously released ones.
Vivo has introduced the Vivo S7 smartphone to the Chinese market. Solid middle class with support for 5G networks, curious cameras and even with an NFC module.
Iron is not top-end, but decent. Chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, which I once called “pre-flagship”. 8GB LPDDR4X RAM, 128GB or 256GB UFS2.1 persistent memory. There is no memory card support.
Large 6.44 ″ AMOLED screen. The resolution is high, 1080 × 2400 (409 ppi). There is no increased refresh rate, only the standard 60 Hz. At the top, there is a large cutout for a dual front camera. Looks unusual, like the fashion of previous generations.
Medium battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, moderately fast fast charging - 33 W.
Curious front camera. 44 MP main module (with autofocus) and 8 MP wide-angle.
The main camera is triple. 64 + 8 + 2 MP. Main module, wide-angle (combined with macro) and traditional depth sensor. The first two cameras have autofocus.
Despite the fact that now the smartphone is presented only in China, it has an NFC module. But what is missing is a standard audio output and support for some “our” LTE frequencies (7 and 20 bands).
Price. ¥ 2798 for the 8 + 128 GB version and ¥ 3098 for the 8 + 256 GB version. We are waiting on Aliexpress in the coming days.
