According to Gizmocchina, Vivo and its subsidiary brand iQOO are preparing to introduce new smartphones in China. Vivo is expected to announce the release date of its S12 series smartphones soon, and on the other hand, iQOO will probably unveil Neo brand devices soon. The latest Weibo post (a Chinese microblogging site similar to Twitter) by the well-known whistleblower, Digital Chat Station, indicates that these smartphones will probably be available in the Chinese market soon.
According to reports, the Vivo S12 and Vivo S12 Pro will be equipped with the Snapdragon 778G chip, and these devices will support 44-watt fast charge. It is believed that Vivo handsets with the model numbers V2162A and V2163A, which have recently been approved by the 3C and TENAA certified websites, will probably be available under the names S12 and S12 Pro. Note that previous models, the Vivo S10 and S10 Pro, used a 1100 dimensional chip and supported 44-watt fast charge.
According to previous reports, the S12 Pro will be equipped with an AMOLED display with FHD + resolution, high refresh rate and a fingerprint sensor under the display. The S12 Pro’s screen will have curved edges, while the S12 will probably have a flat screen. The S12 is expected to feature a 50-megapixel dual camera on the back panel and an 8-megapixel camera on the front panel for selfies. The Pro model will also host a 108-megapixel triple camera. The new S series will likely run with the latest OriginOS Ocean user interface.
Future iQOO handsets are named Neo5 SE and Neo5s. It looks like these devices will likely come with the 1200 Density chip and the Snapdragon 888 chip, respectively, and both models may support 66-watt fast charge. The new Vivo and iQOO handsets are expected to have the latest OriginOS Ocean user interface by default.
