Photo Announcement. Vivo V25e is a good mid-range smartphone without 5G support

Vivo overclocked as it should. Model follows model. Meet the smartphone Vivo V25e. Quite an interesting smartphone without support for 5G networks.

For the sake of variety, he doesn't have twins yet. Closest to Vivo V25e, perhaps, is its "namesake" Vivo V25 5G. Clearly, the chipsets are different (Vivo V25 5G a little more powerful). The front and other secondary cameras differ. But the screens, batteries and main cameras are identical. And the case, apparently, is exactly the same.

The chipset is still rare. MediaTek Helio G99. And Vivo V25e isThis is the second smartphone based on this chip (the first is Infinix Note 12 Pro 4G).

The chip was made using 6 nm technology. Apparently, this is a copy of the MediaTek Dimensity 810 chip, but with cut off support for 5G networks. We can also recall two more close chips - this is MediaTek Helio G96 (12 nm, no 5G) and MediaTek Dimensity 700 (7 nm, there is 5G). There are no performance statistics yet. But, if you look at related chips, then in AnTuTu you can expect 300-350 thousand points. Quite a reasonable average.

(The "namesake" Vivo V25 5G uses the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, i.e. AnTuTu will have 400-450 thousand points).

Memory was not spared. 8 GB operational, 128 or 256 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards.

AMOLED screen, but pretty basic. Diagonal 6.44" (100 cm²), resolution 1080x2404 (409 ppi). Slightly increased - up to 90 Hz - refresh rate.

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

Cameras. A rather serious front-facing camera, its resolution is 32 MP (however, Vivo V25 5G has an even more serious one - 50 MP and even with autofocus).

There are three rear cameras, 64 + 2 + 2 MP. In essence, only the first one is interesting, because it is equipped with an optical stub.ilization. The other two are trivial macro and depth sensor. (Vivo V25 5G has a wide-angle camera instead of a depth sensor).

It's not clear what happened to the NFC module. Mentioned on one of the slides, but not in the specification. The fingerprint scanner is built into the screen. There seems to be no standard audio output.

The body of the yellow variety can change color under the influence of sunlight.

Announced Vivo V25e "globally". So it is possible that it will reach us.

So far I know the price only for Malaysia. 1399 ringgit (₽18900, $314) for version 8+256 GB.
