As predicted, the Vivo S16, S16 Pro, and S16e phones have debuted in China. The phones have a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera in the centre, an in-display fingerprint reader for security, three cameras on the back organised in a rectangle, and USB Type-C audio because there is no 3.5mm audio connection. With the smoked sapphire pattern on the purple glass and photochromic technology, the Vivo S16 Pro’s green colour choice transitions from light green to dark green. The business sells an LED ring that it calls Aura light.
The Vivo S16 series has a 4600mAh battery with 66W fast charging compatibility, an AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, Android 13 OS, and an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. Look at the lineup’s pricing and characteristics.
