Just few days ahead of schedule, Vivo unveiled the Vivo S1 Pro in the Philippines. The phone does not come with a pop-up selfie camera like most of us do expect, but it comes with features that are a little bit closer (bit not identical) with that of the Vivo S5 from the outside. Read on, to see the Vivo S1 Pro full specification, price and availability.
Vivo S1 Pro Features
The new Vivo S1 Pro comes with a 6.38 Super AMOLED display with 1080p+ resolution and a teardrop notch (which houses the 32MP selfie camera). There is also an in-display fingerprint reader at the front.
At the back, you will find a quad camera setup which is made up of a 48MP main camera (1/2” GM1 sensor, f/1.8 aperture), an 8MP ultrawide angle shooter (108°), a dedicated 2MP macro camera (4cm focus distance) and a 2MP depth sensor. The quartet will be placed on a diamond-shaped camera island, just like on the S5.
The Vivo S1 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 665 chipset, which is lesser than both the original S1 Pro (Snapdragon 675) and the S5 (Snapdragon 712). The phone will be configured with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage and will run Funtouch OS 9.2 out of the box (based on Android 9 Pie).
On the plus side, the Vivo S1 Pro comes with a larger battery than both – a 4500mAh capacity. The USB-C port supports fast charging at 18W (9V and 2A). There’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack on top.
Vivo S1 Pro Price and Availability
The Vivo S1 Pro price in the Philippines is PHP16,000 (which is roughly $315), and it should be available for pre-order in the country in no distant time. It comes in a two colours – Fancy Sky (a mostly-white phone with a rainbow effect) and Knight Black (more subtle, but still has a slight gradient to it).
There are no extra words about the markets that will be receiving the new S1 Pro, but chances are that they will not overlap with the other S1 Pro.
