Photo Announcement. Vivo S16e is a fast mid-range smartphone

Vivo unveiled a trio of smartphones from the S16 series in China today. This news is about the younger model, about Vivo S16e. About the older brothers Vivo S16 and Vivo S16 Pro you can read here.

The guys from Vivo suddenly remembered the existence of the Exynos 1080 chipset born in 2020. Curious iron. Formally, if Exynos means Samsung. But other manufacturers except Vivo have never used this chip. For its time, the chipset could generally be considered a flagship. For 600 thousand points in AnTuTu. Those. performance is more than decentand by modern standards.

Memory. 8 or 12 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. Apparently, there is no support for memory cards.

The screen is smaller than that of older brothers. AMOLED, diagonal 6.62 "(106 cm²). Standard good resolution 1080x2400 (398 ppi). Refresh rate - up to 120 Hz.

Battery of the same capacity as relatives, 4600 mAh. Charging is fast - 66 W.

The front camera is unremarkable. 16 megapixels.

The set of rear cameras is also quite trivial - 50 + 2 + 2 MP - but the main camera is equipped with optical stabilization. Judging by the fact that the nameThe sensor of the main camera is not named, there is no reason to hope for something decent... But you can enjoy a beautiful ring flash.

Other. There is support for 5G networks, there is an NFC module, Type-C and a sixth Wi-Fi. The fingerprint scanner is hidden under the screen.

LTE frequencies are categorically not for you and me. There is no seventh or twentieth range.

Vivo S16e will cost ¥2099 (₽21200, $300), ¥2299 (₽23200, $329) and ¥2499 (₽25200, $357) at launch for version 8+128, 8 +256 and 12+256 GB respectively.
