The tri-bezel-less Vkworld S8 is now available for pre-order. The full-screen phone not only boasts an 18:9 display, but also has a titanium frame and a massive 5,500mAh battery.
The Vkworld S8 is supposed to sell for $229.99 but for the duration of the pre-order, it will sell for $169.99. The pre-order promo runs from today (31st of October) till 9th of November.
For $169.99, you get a phone with a 5.99” FHD+ screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and on the rear. MediaTek’s MT6750T is the chipset of choice and there is 4GB of RAM on board. You get 64GB of built-in storage with the option to add up to an additional 128GB.
The Vkworld not only has a bezel-less display, it also has dual rear cameras. One is a 16MP sensor and it is paired with a 5MP sensor. For the front camera, you have a 13MP sensor that sits at the bottom right corner of the chin. The manufacturer says most of its components are from Samsung and Sony, so these sensors should be from either one of the two manufacturers.
The S8 doesn’t end there. There is support for 18W fast charging via MediaTek’s PumpExpress, allowing you charge the 5500mAh battery in just 110 minutes.
Other features include a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, AAC speaker, dual SIM slot (nano + nano/MicroSD card slot), USB-C (charging and audio) and Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
The VKworld is available for pre-order on Tomtop in blue and black, and comes with a screen protector, silicon case, and a type-c to 3.5mm adapter. More info on the phone is available on the Vkworld official website.
