Vivo India is preparing for the launch of a new mid-range Android smartphone named Vivo S1 in the country. But before you get too excited, it is worth mentioning that this is not the Chinese variant that was unveiled earlier this year. Instead, it is a completely different phone with a distinguished set of specifications but exactly the same name.
The Vivo S1 is claimed to sport a 6.38-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with a dewdrop-styled notch. Under the hood, it will have an octa-core MediaTek Helio P65 processor which will be a first for any smartphone in the country. It will be accompanied by 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage which seems to be the only configuration variant.
There will be a triple rear camera setup featuring a 16-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel secondary wide-angle sensor, and a 2-megapixel tertiary sensor. On the front, there is a 32-megapixel snapper for taking selfies and video calling purposes. The whole package is powered by a 4500mAh battery with Dual Engine fast charging support. It will be running Android 9 Pie out of the box and also has an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The leak is accompanied by a bunch of Vivo S1 hands-on images showing the phone with the gradient Blue finish. It is not confirmed if it will be the only color variant or there will be more options. One of the images also shows the retail packaging which happens to be quite simplistic. There are no words on the pricing and availability details yet.
