A 4,700 mAh battery keeps the lights on with support for 66W fast charging. According to vivo, it should take no more than 18 minutes to charge the handset from flat to 50%.
It’s a hectic day at vivo. Not only the X80 and X80 Pro were revealed, but also the S15e, a mid-range smartphone. The vivo S15e is a smartphone with an Exynos 1080 SoC, a 50-megapixel camera, and a 6.44-inch OLED display. The Exynos 1080 chipset, which is developed on Samsung’s contemporary 5nm manufacturing technique, is arguably the most exciting component of the vivo S15e. A 6.44-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ (1080 x 2404px) resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate is also included in the handset. There are three memory configurations available: 8GB/128GB, 8GB/256GB, and 12GB/256GB.
Interestingly, the vivo S15e is launching with OriginOS based on Android 11, not Android 12. The starting price of the handset is CNY 1,999 ($305) while the two 256GB options ask CNY 2,299 ($350) and CNY 2,499 ($380). Pre-orders are open while actual sales will commence on April 30 and you have a choice between three options – Black, Blue and some sort of Rose Gold-like paint job.
