Vivo S7 is all set to launch in China on August 3, and the company is rolling out teasers ahead of launch. Fresh renders have been posted by the company, revealing design details of the phone. The back of the Vivo S7 can be seen in two renders, confirming a triple rear camera setup. The Vivo S7 rear camera setup resides on the top left corner of the back panel, and it houses a large primary sensor alongside the two auxiliary sensors.
The company has taken to Weibo to post two new official renders of the Vivo S7 ahead of the phone’s launch next week. Both the renders show the back panel design of the device, and it is seen sporting a gradient panel with multiple colours reflecting from the surface. OEMs have been releasing such gradient panel options more often, of late, and Vivo is looking to continue on the same path. This could be the White option that reflects varied colours from different angles, or it could just be a multi hued design by Vivo, just for the Vivo S7 range.
As mentioned, there is a triple camera setup seen at the back of the phone, and the setup looks very similar to the Vivo X50 Pro, minus the periscope lens placed at the bottom. There is a large primary camera on top, and two accomplices sitting below it. There is no rear fingerprint sensor seen at the back of the phone, hinting at probably an in-display sensor. We can spot the power button and the volume rockers sitting on the right spine. The bottom edge is seen to house a USB Type-C port and a speaker grille as well.
There is a video teaser that has also been posted on Vivo’s official account and it hints at a new Sunny mode for the selfie camera. The Vivo S7 is also teased to come with a new Smooth mode as well. A previous render leak suggests that there are dual selfie cameras inside a display notch that is placed in the top centre. The phone is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC.
