A few weeks ago, the Chinese manufacturer Vivo, introduced the Vivo S1, a device that came with hardware driven by the MediaTek Helio P70 processor and a front camera of 24.8 megapixels. Now, the manufacturer has announced a new variant, the Vivo S1 Pro that has more upgraded specifications.
This device has a very striking and interesting design because its screen is complete and its frames are almost non-existent. Of course, it has no notch, instead, it has mounted on the top a sliding front camera that is activated automatically just by entering the camera application.
In the back, we find a triple camera placed vertically along with an LED flash, as you can see, there is nothing more than the photographic section. This is because the fingerprint reader has been integrated below the screen, so the appearance of the device is now cleaner as well as elegant.
As for the performance of the Vivo S1 Pro, we find an AMOLED screen of 6.39 inches with Full HD + resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. Additionally, the team has a screen-to-body ratio of 91.64 per cent, which leads to a clean panel.
Under the hood, the hardware is powered by a mid-range processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 that comes with 6 GB of RAM with 256 GB of storage, while the other model offers 8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage.
On the other hand, in the photography, the phone mounts three cameras in the back with a 48-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle and a 5-megapixel telephoto. The front camera is 32 megapixels that is fully retractable.
Other features of the new Vivo phone are that it has a dedicated button on the left side to invoke AI Jovi, the company’s voice assistant. In addition, it incorporates a 3,700 mAh battery, a micro USB port and runs Android 9.0 Pie as the default operating system with the Funtouch interface in its version number 9.
The Vivo S1 Pro will be available in China from next May 9 in blue and red colors. As for prices, they will start at CNY 2,698. It is expected that in the coming weeks, the manufacturer will provide full information about the cost of the other variants of the smartphone.
