In fact, although we have a camera bumper very similar to the Neo 6 series of iQOO (i.e. very generous), they find different frames to compose the frame: the basic model finds the square edges of S12/V23, while the Pro model maintains more rounded lines due to curved display. In any case, the look does not differ too much from what has already been seen with the "small" of the range, vivo S15e, launched in April also Global under other names.
