At 2.98mm, Vivo S5 has the smallest hole-punch on any phone



Just when we thought the trend of hole-punch displays is over, we have started getting more & more phones with hole-punch displays. In fact, next year’s flagships from OnePlus are also most likely coming with hole-punch screens if we believe the leaks. Today, Vivo launched its new mid-range phone in China named Vivo S5 & one interesting thing about this phone is that it has the smallest hole-punch on any phone at 2.98mm.

Not just the front, but the design on the rear is also interesting as there is a unique diamond-shaped camera module that has three cameras & the LED flash. The fourth camera is placed outside this module. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner & if you can notice in the image above, the design of the fingerprint on the lock screen is similar to the design of the rear camera module. So that’s a nice touch.
