Is diamond the new circle?
vivo is set to go against the current norm of circular camera modules, opting for a diamond-shaped one for two of its upcoming phones. The first one spotted to have this module design is the V17, which was leaked by Russian tech media. The non-pro variant still hs a quad-rear camera setup, though it is rearranged differently due to the new module design. One of the four cameras is confirmed to be a 48-megapixel snapper, and our guess is that the other three cameras is similar to the Philippine variant of the V17 Pro.
Over in China, official renders of the S5 have surfaced. While it has the same diamond-shaped module, the S5’s camera arrangement is slightly different from the V17. The quad-rear setup consists of a 48-megapixel main camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and 2-megapixel macro camera.
Up front, you have a 6.44-inch display with a punch hole that is home to a 32-megapixel selfie snapper. For the internals, the S5 is rumored to have a Snapdragon 712 processor paired, 8GB RAM, up to 256GB internal storage, and a 4100mAh battery.
We expect vivo to reveal more details about both phones in the coming weeks.
