Vivo has announced its new S series generation, which are said to be two of the best selfie snappers out there: Vivo S12 and S12 Pro.
Alongside them, Vivo will also launch its second smartwatch, the Vivo Watch 2.
The Vivo S12 Pro is, without a doubt, the most interesting of the two. It comes with a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate, 240 Hz touch sampling rate and HDR10 +. Under the hood, it hosts a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset and a 4,300mAh battery with 44W fast charging support.
On the back, we’ll find a 108MP main camera, an 8MP and a 2MP sensor. However, it’s the front camera department that is actually the star of the show: there, we’ll find a 50MP + 8MP camera combination that also comes along with a dual LED flash, wide angle and many AI-based shooting modes (AR, sport, double exposure, double-shot video and more. ).
Overall, the device has a thickness of 7.36 mm and weighs 171 grams.
The vanilla version of the Vivo S12 on the other hand, has a 6.44-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. It comes with a MediaTek Dimensity 1100 chipset and a 4,200mAh battery with 44W fast charging.
The camera module on the back is identical to the Pro variant but the front features a 44MP and 8MP camera combination instead.
The Vivo S12 is 7.38mm thick and weighs 179 grams.
Both devices are marketed in China in China in 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB configurations, with prices starting at roughly around $470 and $580
The S series devices have never been, generally speaking, expensive, so the features we mentioned above are pretty amazing when we consider the quality/price ratio.
However, we don’t know if the phones will become available globally, in select markets or if they will even leave China to begin with.
