Looking for a cheaper alternative to the Vivo V25 and V25 Pro? The company has a new model for you and it’s called the Vivo V25e.
Lacking 5G connectivity, the Vivo V25e is powered by the gaming-centric MediaTek Helio G99 octa-core processor and only comes with a single RAM and storage configuration: 8GB/256GB.
The front is populated by the colorful 6.44-inch AMOLED panel, paired with a speedy 90Hz refresh rate, and a peak brightness of 1,300 nits.
There’s a teardrop notch on top for the sharp 32-megapixel selfie camera, while at the bottom there’s the under-display fingerprint scanner.
Another highlight of this device is the Sunshine Gold variant, which boasts the brand’s color-changing technology as it reacts to sunlight or UV.
At the top left, there’s an island that holds the triple camera lenses with two large circles that mimics large lenses. They hold the pixel-packed 64-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization, as well as two 2-megapixel sensors for macro and depth sensing.
To achieve its impressive 7.79mm thinness, the V25e only has a 4,500mAh battery instead of the usual 5,000mAh. It is paired with a 44W adapter for charging.
Vivo also rigged it with NFC for cashless payments, 4G game vibration for a more tactile experience, as well as IP54 certification to keep it safe from accidental water splashes.
The Vivo V25e has a price of MYR1,399 (around Php17,500) and is now up for pre-order in Malaysia. Release details in the Philippines and other markets are yet to be known.
