Kun, who is the leader of the Nine Percent k-pop boy band, actually interviewed himself. According to media reports, Kun reads fashion-related questions from the alleged Vivo S5 while donning the hat of an interviewer. In one of the scenes from the interview, one can see the whole back panel of the device. It is evident that this is an upcoming smartphone with diamond-shaped camera array.

One might even argue that this is a dummy device posing as an upcoming smartphone. However, it is clear that Vivo is teasing the smartphone and leading us to eventual launch in the coming weeks. The Weibo post associated with the device begins with a rhombus/diamond emoji. It is posted from a Vivo device running Android. At this moment, there is no specific certification associated with the device. There is also no word on the expected features or specifications of the smartphone.

Vivo is maintaining its position in the global and Indian smartphone market despite strong competition. According to Counterpoint, it maintained third place in Indian smartphone market. For the Chinese smartphone maker Vivo S1 and Y17 reportedly performed well in the market. Its increased focus towards online segment and demand for S series suggests Vivo S5 will come to India as well. We should see more leaks around the device in the next few days and Vivo might actually announce the device itself.
