In the official renders released over on Weibo, we can finally have a look at real design of the device. The Vivo S5 comes with a OLED display and a camera hole in upper right corner. We see these two technologies together for the first time on a Chinese phone. The only other devices with this tech are indeed the Samsung S10 and Note 10 series.

The render also confirms a very talked about aspect of the phone: its camera configuration. The Vivo S5 does indeed appear to feature a diamond-shaped camera setup. In particular, we see three cameras in the diamond at the center and a flash, plus an additional one just below.
