Last week we came across a report which claimed that the vivo S1 Pro will be launched in India next month. We didn’t have a specific date then, but now we know it’s January 4.
vivo India has updated the header image of its official Twitter account and also set up a promotional page on its official site to reveal the launch date.
Initially, we thought vivo will launch the Chinese version of the S1 Pro in India which is powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC and comes with a notchless screen and triple rear cameras. But turns out vivo will bring the global version instead that has a Snapdragon 665 SoC at the helm and features a 6.38″ FHD+ Super AMOLED notched display with quad cameras on the back arranged in a diamond formation.
This setup is a combination of a 48MP main, 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensor modules. For selfies and video calls, you get a 32MP camera on the front and there’s also a fingerprint scanner underneath the display for biometric authentication.
The vivo S1 Pro boots to Android Pie-based Funtouch OS 9.2 and has 8GB RAM and 128GB storage onboard. But it does come with a microSD card slot, allowing storage expansion by up to 256GB.
Fueling the entire package is a 4,500 mAh battery that charges through a USB-C port and supports 18W fast charging.
The S1 Pro is available in the Philippines in Fancy Sky and Knight Black colors, but vivo India’s official Twitter handle and website reveal the smartphone will arrive in India in Fancy Sky and Blue colors.
We don’t know the India price of the vivo S1 Pro yet, but we do know that it will be sold through Amazon.in.
