Even though the whole world is under threat due to COVID-19, smartphone companies like Vivo are unstoppable. The company has unveiled Vivo S6 with 5G support alongside a 4500mAh battery with 18W fast charging technology.
The smartphone also includes a traditional headphone port using which you can listen to the audio. The in-screen fingerprint sensor helps you to unlock the device quickly. The display includes a waterdrop-style notch, where the selfie sensor is hidden.
The Vivo S6 5G ships with advanced technologies such as CPU Turbo, AI Turbo, Net Turbo, Cool Turbo, Game Turbo, and ART++ Turbo respectively.
According to Vivo, the Cool Turbo module is capable of reducing heat by 10 percent during both normal and extreme gaming usage.
Vivo S6 Specifications and Features
The Vivo S6 flaunts a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080×2400 pixels. With a 20:9 aspect ratio, the smartphone comes with a 90.1 percent screen-to-body ratio coupled with 408 PPI pixel density. The handset works with the help of the Exynos 980 processor running at 2.26GHz. The octa-core chipset helps you to play games effectively.
On the storage front, the Vivo S6 offers up to 256GB paired with 8GB RAM. You can opt for either 128GB or 256GB depending upon your requirements. The device is preloaded with FunTouch OS 10 based on Android 10.
In terms of optics, the Vivo S6 features quad-camera comprising of a 48MP (f/1.79) Primary camera, an 8MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle shooter, a 2MP (f/2.4) macro camera and a 2MP (f/2.4) depth sensors respectively.
The selfie snapper offers a 32MP sensor with an f/2.08 aperture. In addition to 4K video shooting capability, the Vivo S6 also provides support for a night scene, portrait, panorama, dynamic photo, AU cute shoot, short video, professional video, slow motion, and time-lapse photography.
The battery segment is a bit disappointing because of the 18W fast charging instead of the 22.5W in the previous counterpart. However, the 4500mAh battery rating with USB Type-C port helps the device to deliver a standby time of over 4 days upon normal usage.
The addition of 5G, Bluetooth 5.1 and Face Unlock support is a big move by Vivo. The latest Bluetooth technology enables the phone to consume fewer resources.
