Right on cue, vivo launched its S10 series in China. The two midrangers come with impressive specs and slim and flat designs measuring at just 7.29mm and weighing 173 grams. The pair also bring photochromic backs that react to changes in light offering a unique-looking appearance. Both models come with 6.44-inch 90Hz Super AMOLEDs, 44MP selfie cams, Dimensity 1100 chipsets and 4,000 mAh batteries with 44W wired charging.
The S10 Pro has the upper hand in the camera department with its 1/1.52-inch 108MP ISOCELL HM2 sensor with 9:1-pixel binning. The vanilla model opts for a 64MP main shooter instead. There’s also an 8MP ultrawide and 2MP macro cam shared across both models.
The front-facing cameras include a main 44MP selfie shooter with autofocus that captures HDR content and up to 4K resolution video. There’s real-time background blur effects as well as portrait mode. You also get an 8MP ultrawide snapper which helps you fit more content in shots. The top bezel also houses dual-LED flashes that can brighten even the dimmest of shots.
