Vivo is set to launch a new smartphone at an event in China May 24, as confirmed by a post in the company’s official Weibo account.

The new device is called the Vivo Z5x, and it will be the company’s first phone with a hole-punch design similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10e. The front-facing camera of the Z5x, however, will be located on the upper-left corner of the screen.

Word has it that the handset will sport a 6.53-inch display with minimal bezels and a 5,000mAh battery to match its sizable front real estate, which is bigger than the V15 Pro’s.

Around back, the Vivo Z5x gets a fingerprint reader and a triple-camera system, with one of the lenses likely donning an ultra-wide-angle lens.

A live image of the phone courtesy of a Vivo product manager, meanwhile, suggests a long battery life that can handle 14 hours of gaming throughout a two-day period with 13 percent of power left to spare. For charging, the Z5x will ship with an 18-watt fast charger, based on information from a certification agency in China.

Naturally, it will come with Android 9.0 Pie-based Funtouch OS 9 out of the box. The prices are still unknown, but the Z5x is already available for preorder on Vivo’s official Chinese website in 4GB/64GB, 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 8GB/128GB memory configurations.
