Today, Vivo officially released the latest news regarding the upcoming Vivo S6 5G smartphone. According to the company, this smartphone will come with an ultra-thin design. The company has previously revealed that this smartphone will support a dual-mode 5G chip as well as the night view selfie function. In the video, we can see feathers and a balloon floating in the air, and the text is “unexpectedly light?” and “1__g body, beyond imagination”. This indicates that the Vivo S6 body will use a slim design and the weight will be 100+ g (certainly not up to 200g).
At present, most 5G phones in the market weigh more than 200g. This is because the high power consumption of 5G requires larger batteries which obviously increases the weight. Considering that Vivo regards weight as a prominent selling point, Vivo S6 should not sacrifice battery capacity in exchange for weight advantages.
Since 2019, Vivo has released a number of new 5G products. The company now has the likes of iQOO Pro 5G, NEX 3 5G, Vivo X30 Pro, NEX 3S, etc. According to recent rumors, Vivo will release this smartphone “soon”. However, we do not have an idea of the official launch date or month for now.
Vivo S6 previous speculations
Just like any other Chinese smartphone maker, Vivo teased the announcement of Vivo S6 on microblogging site Weibo. As per the teaser, the phone will have support for 5G network, unlike its predecessor which only had support for 4G. Although the brand did not mention anything, we can expect the phone to work on both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-standalone) 5G network. Hopefully, the company drops more teasers revealing the features of the device ahead of its unveiling day. Obviously, this is confirmed to support 5G network. Its recent 3c certification listing shows that it also supports 18W fast charge.
In case you do not know or have forgotten, the Vivo S5, the forerunner of the upcoming Vivo S6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 paired with up 8GB RAM and up to 256GB ROM. It features 6.44-inches FHD+ Super AMOLED punch-hole display, in-screen fingerprint sensor, 48MP (primary) + 8MP (ultra-wide) + 2MP (macro) + 5MP (depth) quad-camera setup, 32MP selfie camera, 4100 mAh battery, 22.5W fast charging, and Android 9.0 Pie operating system.
