vivo teases a smartphone with diamond-shaped camera

Yordan, 23 October 2019

Another week, another new vivo smartphone is on its way. This time the company celebrity ambassador and influencer Cai Xukun spoke in an interview for Esquire Fine, holding a new phone with unusual diamond-shaped camera setup and at least three shooters.

Sources from China claim the name will be vivo S5 despite the lack of phones in the S lineup since S1 and S1 pro.

The leader of the Nine Percent k-pop boy band, better known as Kun actually interviewed himself. In his role as an interviewer, Kun appears to be reading fashion-related questions from the alleged vivo S5.

Albeit hidden in the better part of the video, there is one scene around the 18-second mark, where you can spot the whole back panel of the device, revealing the camera setup.

Some might say this is a toy, posing for a smartphone, the Weibo post begins with a rhombus/diamond emoji and is said to be posted from a vivo device with Android. It is obvious vivo is leaving some breadcrumbs to lead us to an eventual smartphone launch. However, we are yet to see any specific certifications that suggest an imminent device arrival.
