VIVO S5 Announced: Comes With Industry’s Smallest Perforated Screen Hole


VIVO’s new product launch conference has ended a few minutes ago. And now we know everything about this much-talked smartphone. Of course, it’s not an annual flagship. But the VIVO S5 has a couple of outstanding features.

VIVO S5 Key Specs

The VIVO S5 has a screen size of 6.44 inches, a screen ratio of 20:9, and a resolution of 1080P. As the company’s executive said, the phone adopts the industry’s smallest perforated AMOLED screen with a hole size of 2.98mm. This makes the screen ratio reached 91.38%.


In addition, the screen’s peak brightness can reach 1200 nits. Thus, it can display any content under strong light. At the same time, under low brightness, the VIVO S5 adopts the optimized Dimlayer masking algorithm to adjust the brightness of the screen through the jitter difference. This effectively reduces blue light radiation.

The VIVO S5 is available in three colors: Icelandic Love Song, Phantom Blue, and Phantom Black. However, the former differs from the other two. In this color variant, the designers brought a unique gradient effect with three colors of the aurora, blue, and pink. In the rear quad-camera layout, VIVO uses a diamond-shaped structure.

In terms of configuration, the VIVO S5 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 octa-core processor with a maximum clock speed of 2.3GHz.
