Design inspiration draws from vocal melody, romantic color matching re-introduces new trends in technology and aesthetics
From the full-scale zero-screen of the vivo S1 series to the geometric diamond ID of the vivo S5, constantly exploring new aesthetic directions is a unique feature of the vivo S series. This time, the designers of the vivo S6 series took inspiration from classic music melody, refined the wonderful musical charm into dynamic and emotional colors, and created three new romantic colors for Swan Lake, Danube River, and Jazz Black. Enjoy with new visual feelings and soul. With a round retro record camera design with a special light and shadow pattern and an approximately 181 grams, 8.6 mm body, the vivo S6 series of mobile phones seems to dance lightly in bright sunlight.
The three new color schemes of the vivo S6 series use complex manufacturing processes. The Danube and Jazz Black both use high-molecular material manufacturing technology to maintain a glass-like transparent light feeling and glare effect. The Danube's gradient color is also incorporated into the fading plating process. On the basis of the blue and purple gradients, a layer of silver coating is added to make the mysterious dark flowing silver between the blue and purple gradients faintly visible. Swan Lake, as a color exclusively created by women of the vivo S6 series, has a more dreamy, romantic and agile overall performance. The color matching of Swan Lake uses the production process of injection molding film. The visual effect on the back of the fuselage is not only transparent, but also the effect of changing light is more outstanding under the sunlight. In order to make its color performance more textured, the vivo S6 series Swan Lake color matching adds frosted texture on top of the body color coating, and the visual effect is excellent. Under the designer's careful color adjustment, the beauty of visual vocal music is elegantly displayed on the back of the vivo S6 series.
