Vkworld S8 has been in the news for quite some time now and is going to be released right after Chinese National Day. The S8 will be the first 18:9 phone to feature a battery of 5500mAh while the display bezels are extremely thin and the screen-to-body ratio is almost 91%. The top bezel is only 3mm thin and contains the earpiece, light sensor, and proximity sensor.

    They didn’t get enough from copying the name “S8” they even copied the fingerprint position! lmao

    I bet the battery longevity is worse than 3000mAh phones.

      Actually the Vkworld Mix Plus which has a 2850 mAh is better then the Leagoo Kiicaa Mix with a 3000 mAh i have both.

    Another P25, I suppose? I’ve had enough of low-key Chinese brands, they aren’t worth the money.

    • Josef Izchaki

      What’s wrong with the P25?

    Kali mera Dimitris, I wonder why in none of the review is mentioned if the VKWorld S8 has a notification led or not. Not even in the manufacturers homepage is a hint.
    Kind regards Michael
