Vivo S1 has made its international debut. Almost four months after introducing the smartphone in its home market, Vivo is now ready to bring it other markets. There are, however, a few differences between the China variant and the global variant, and the most notable ones include different battery, processor, display size, and camera. The Vivo S1 global variant is now up for pre-order in Indonesia, and it includes a MediaTek Helio P65 SoC, a 16-megapixel primary sensor on a triple rear camera setup, and a 4,500mAh battery. The China variant has a pop-up selfie shooter, while the global variant sports a waterdrop-style notch.
In Indonesia, the Vivo S1 has been priced at IDR 35,99,000 (roughly Rs. 17,700). It is up for pre-order on Shopee Mall in Cosmic Green and Skyline Blue colour options, and is set to go on sale from July 23. This variant is expected to launch in India soon.
The Vivo S1 global variant runs on Funtouch OS 9, based on Android 9 Pie. The dual-SIM (Nano) Vivo S1 also features a 6.38-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop-style notch. It is powered by octa-core MediaTek Helio P65 SoC coupled with 4GB of RAM.
In terms of the imaging capabilities, Vivo has included a triple rear camera setup in the global variant as well, but it houses a 16-megapixel primary sensor with an f/1.78 lens, 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.2 wide-angle lens, and a third 2-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 lens. There is also a 32-megapixel front shooter onboard with an f/2.0 lens.
Additionally, the Vivo smartphone packs 128GB of onboard. On the connectivity front, the Vivo S1 includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth v5, USB-OTG, Micro USB, and GPS. The company has also added a 4,500mAh battery and an in-display fingerprint sensor in the smartphone. Vivo S1 measures 159.53×75.23×8.13mm and weighs 179.5 grams.
