New Delhi: Vivo launched the Vivo S16 series in China on Thursday. The series consists of three phones, all of which are classified in the mid-range segment. The phones include Vivo S16, Vivo S16 Pro and Vivo S16e.
The phones run on the latest Android 13 OS out of the box and come with a mix of Snapdragon, Dimensity and Exynos chips.
Vivo S16 Pro
The Vivo S16 and S16 Pro share a similar spec sheet, while the S16e has its own set of features. However, all the phones boast a similar design and get a ring-shaped flagship, which could be useful for those who create short videos or content in general.
The S16 and S16 Pro feature a 6.78-inch curved AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The S16e will get a smaller 6.62-inch flat screen with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Trio has FHD+ resolution and comes with a trio of cameras on the back.
The S16 has a 64MP main lens, an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor. The S16 Pro comes with a 50MP main lens with OIS support, a 12MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor. The S16e, on the other hand, has a weaker setup with a 50MP main lens and two sensors for depth and macro shots.
The S16 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. The S16 Pro is powered by the Dimensity 8200 SoC and the S16e has an Exynos 1080 chipset.
The trio includes a 4,600mAh battery with support for 66W fast charging. The series launches on Android 13 out of the box with the OriginOS Forest skin.
