Unlike older brother, Vivo V25 is presentedsomehow sloppy. It is not on the official website. And English-language news sites refer to the fact that they received a press release from Vivo. I didn't receive any press releases. So I refer to English-language news sites. Well, plus the Vivo V25 has already been issued to several reviewers, so there are already a couple of video reviewers.

Vivo V25 is interesting in that it focuses on the photo part. Well, emphasis. Such a small stick. Those. not a photo flagship, but significantly better than the average for the hospital.
If we forget about the cameras, then we have enoughtrivial, although in some places a cool average (watch the first of the video reviews - it's a little lower - where its author amusingly “paints” the smartphone case with a special flashlight).

Impressive front. Not only does it have a resolution of 50 MP, but it also has autofocus. It's a pity there is no information about the sensor used there.

There are three rear cameras, 64 + 8 + 2 MP. In essence, only the first one is interesting, because it is equipped with optical stabilization. The other two are trivial wide and macro.

The chipset is last year's MediaTek Dimensity 900, so we expect 400-450 thousand points in AnTuTu. You can’t attribute it to the tops, but the result is worthy.

There is a lot of memory. 8 or 12 GB of RAM, 128 or 256 GB of storage. There is no memory card support.

The screen is AMOLED, but pretty basic. Diagonal 6.44″ (100 cm²), resolution 1080×2404 (409 ppi). Slightly increased - up to 90 Hz - refresh rate.

Medium capacity battery - 4500 mAh. Charging is fast, although not a record - 44 watts.

What about the NFC-module is unclear. Most likely, it will, but not in all countries. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. There is no standard audio output.

Information about the cost of the device is not yet available.

Didn't mention "close relatives". Gemini at Vivo V25. Closest to him, perhaps
OPPO Find X5 Lite and OPPO Reno7 5G Global. They do not have optical stabilization, simpler front cameras, another cutout in the screen. But charging is faster.
