The vivo S7 5G is now official with a Snapdragon 765G chipset, 64 MP rear and 44 MP front cameras. Those aren’t the only cams on the phone, in fact photography and video capture are a focus for this device.
But let’s start with the 6.44” AMOLED display. It has a 1,080 x 2,400 px resolution (20:9) and it boasts HDR support along with 98.5% NTSC color coverage. The refresh rate is only 60 Hz, however. There’s a fingerprint reader built into the display.
Notched into the display are two cameras. The main shooter has a 44 MP sensor and an autofocus lens with f/2.0 aperture. It’s capable of recording 4K video at 60 fps. Next to it is a 105° ultra wide-angle camera with an 8 MP sensor.
Around the back we find the main 64 MP camera. It, like the front cams, supports electronic video stabilization plus the latest Super Night modes from vivo. You can shoot video with the front and rear cameras simultaneously (split-screen).
Next up is the 8 MP ultra wide camera on the rear, which also doubles as a macro cam. Finally, there’s a 2 MP depth sensor. For zooming, the phone relies on the high resolution main sensor.
The vivo S7 is powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset, paired with 8 GB of RAM (LPDDR4X, dual channel). The base storage is 128 GB but you can get 256 GB instead (both UFS 2.1). There’s no place for a microSD card on the dual SIM slot.
The 4,000 mAh battery supports 33 W flash charging with the 11V/3A charger that is bundled in the box. There’s no 3.5 mm headphone jack, but Hi-Res Audio is supported if you use a USB-C headset.
Wireless connectivity is pretty solid thanks to the Snapdragon chipset. 5G (SA/NSA), of course, plus dual-band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1 with aptX HD and LDAC, plus NFC.
The S7 is available in three colors, the most interesting of which is the Monet option. Layers of blue and purple mix in a way inspired by the Impressionist painter. The phone is thin and fairly light, measuring 7.39 mm and weighing 170 g (note: the Monet color is a tenth of a millimeter thicker).
The vivo S7 can be pre-ordered in China today, the first units will ship on August 8. The 128 GB model will cost you CNY 2,800 ($400/€340) while the 256 GB one is CNY 3,100 (the 256 GB option will come later, however).
