Vivo is gearing to launch the Vivo S5 phone in China on November 14. Ahead of D-day, the company has shared the first official render of the phone in question on Weibo leaving nothing to the imagination. The render confirms that the Vivo S5 will come with a punch-hole display like the Vivo Z1 Pro and 48MP quad rear cameras. The Vivo S5 will also come with an in-display fingerprint scanner which invariably means that it would use an OLED panel.
