Vivo is set to expand its extensive lineup of mid-range smartphones once again with the launch of the Vivo S5 in China on November 14. Just a day ahead of the smartphone’s formal debut in China, it has popped up on the popular Geekbench benchmark database. The latest leak corroborates some of the information that was revealed by the phone’s listing on the TENAA website recently.
The Vivo V1932A listing on Geekbench reveals the smartphone will be powered by a Snapdragon 700-series chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM. Even though the motherboard is listed as “sdm710”, the phone will likely have the newer Snapdragon 712 chipset inside, similar to a few other mid-range phones that Vivo has launched recently. As for the benchmarking scores, the Vivo S5 achieved 1,884 points in the single-core test and 6,069 points in the multi-core test. In terms of software, the Geekbench listing suggests the S5 will debut with Android 9 Pie out of the box and not the latest Android 10.
Several renders of the S5 had been leaked recently, pretty much confirming all key design highlights. The smartphone will have a hole-punch cutout on the top-right edge of the display. At the rear, the S5 will have a diamond-shaped quad-camera module. As mentioned earlier, the Vivo S5 has been certified by TENAA already, so most of its key hardware specs have also been revealed.
The Vivo S5 will arrive with a 6.44-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display, paired with up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB internal storage. The quad-camera setup at the rear will have a 48-megapixel main sensor, while on the front will be a 32MP selfie camera. Keeping the lights on will be a 4010mAh capacity battery.
