The module will be equally divided into two segments. Only the top part will include the camera sensors. Whereas, a soft LED light will run along with borders of the bottom part along with a standard dual-tone LED flashlight inside.
The phones will have a feather-like pattern on their rear panels and will be available in four colors, such as purple, green, red, and black.
On the other hand, the Vivo S18e will feature a circular camera module and a flat frame design. It will also arrive in three colors, such as white, black, and violet.
