Apart from launching the Vivo X80 series in China today, Vivo has also launched its Vivo S15e mid-ranger in its home market. The device comes with a 90Hz display, a Samsung Exynos chipset, 66W fast charging, and more. Let’s take a look at all the details below.
Vivo S15e: Specs and Features
The Vivo S15e comes as a powerful yet affordable smartphone in China. It sports a 6.44-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with support for a 90Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ technology. It has a pixel density of 441ppi and a 20:9 aspect ratio.
There is also a 16MP selfie shooter, housed inside the teardrop notch (which makes the phone look rather old, though!) at the front. At the back, the device features a triple-camera setup, including a 50MP primary lens, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro lens. The Vivo S15e can record videos at up to 4K 30FPS and supports features like Night Portrait, AI skin texture algorithm, front portrait HD, Micro-Video 2.0, and more.
Under the hood, the Vivo S15e packs the 5nm Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset, which launched back in 2020. It is an octa-core SoC, containing 4x ARM Cortex-A78 cores and 4x ARM Cortex-A55 cores. The processor is coupled with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and up to 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. Furthermore, the device comes with a dynamic RAM feature that expands the RAM by up to 4GB.
There is also a 4,700mAh battery with support for 66W fast charging. Other than these, the Vivo S15e comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication and support for Wi-Fi 802.11 ac and Bluetooth version 5.2. It also has a USB-C port at the bottom for charging and data transfer.
The Vivo S15e runs the Android 12-based OriginOS Ocean in China and comes in three color options – Fluorite Black, Ice Crystal Blue, and Rime Gold. However, unlike the black and blue variants, the Rime Gold model has a patterned back panel. Additionally, the Vivo S15e gets a VC cooling system, support for multi-antenna switching tech, Multi-Turbo 6.0, 5G support, and more.
