The Chinese smartphone giant Vivo has now unveiled the all-new Vivo S1 Pro in the Indian market. For starters, the phone flaunts a quad rear camera module, followed by a Super AMOLED display, and a massive 4,500mAh battery with fast charging as its main highlights. Let’s have a detailed look at its specs, features, price, and availability in India.
Vivo S1 Pro Specs, Features
The Vivo S1 Pro is apparently a toned-down version of Vivo V17 that was unveiled sometime back in the country. It comes with a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
There’s also an in-display fingerprint scanner, accompanied by the support for Always-on display feature. Thanks to the water-drop notch, the device touts an impressive screen to body ratio of 90%. Screen protection is handled by tough Schott Xensation 3D glass.
Powering the phone at its core is the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 SoC, coupled with Adreno 610 GPU. This is the same processor that we’ve seen previously on Mi A3 (review), Vivo U10 (review) and Redmi Note 8 (review). The phone is available in a single variant with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
For photography, there’s a diamond-shaped quad-camera module at the rear. It comprises of a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, EIS and an 8-megapixel wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture. Furthermore, there’s a dual 2MP f/2.4 setup for depth and macro photography. For selfies, the phone houses a 32-megapixel front camera, housed in the waterdrop notch.
The phone runs Android 9 Pie with Funtouch OS 9.2 on top. All of this is backed by a 4,500mAh battery that supports Vivo’s 18W dual-engine fast charging. Connectivity options on board include 4G VoLTE, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, and a USB Type-C port.
