VIVO had announced S1 Pro smartphone back in May. Now, company has announced new version of VIVO S1 Pro in Philippines.
The hardware and design is totally different from what it used to be in original S1 Pro. And let me tell you, it is surely going to lead to a lot of confusion.
For starters, it has 6.38-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and Snapdragon 665 SoC opposed to 6.3-inch AMOLED screen and Snapdragon 675 SoC in original model. The battery in new VIVO S1 Pro is of 4500mAh capacity (opposed to 3700 in S1 Pro variant launched back in May).
The VIVO S1 Pro Philippines variant boots on Funtouch OS 9.2. It has Dual SIM slots and supports Dual 4G VoLTE. It houses an in-display fingerprint sensor for secure unlocking. A quad camera setup of 48MP + 8MP + 2MP + 2MP shooters sits at the back while the front side houses a 32MP selfie shooter placed inside notch (not in popup module).
