Vivo has launched a new mid-ranger called Vivo S1. This is coming after the release of the latest Vivo V15 Android smartphone with a pop-up camera. For those that can’t afford the V15 or V15 Pro version and still want to get a feel of a smartphone with a pop-up shooter, Vivo S1 is budget-friendly and comes with some awesome specifications, which includes a pop-up so yo keep up with the groove. Let’s look at some of the features that come with this latest smartphone from Vivo.
Design and Display
For those that have seen the pictures or reviews on the trending Vivo V15, you’ll agree with me that the latest Vivo S1 has a similar design and look with the V15. The major difference between the two Android smartphones is the lower pop-up selfie camera resolution and bigger internal storage. The smartphone looks sleek and trendy, with two color variants (Ice lake Blue and Pet Pink) to choose from.
In terms of display, Vivo S1 rocks a 6.53-inch Full HD+ display which offers a resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels. The Android smartphone also features a 90.95% screen-to-body with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
Camera and Battery
Good cameras have been one of the major selling points of Vivo smartphones. Vivo S1, as a budget Android smartphone rocks triple camera setup on the rear, which contains a 12-megapixel primary sensor that has an f/1.78 lens, 8-megapixel secondary sensor with an f/2.2, and a 5-megapixel tertiary sensor with an f/2.4 lens for good photographs. On the front, this smartphone is armed with a 24.8-megapixel selfie camera.
When it comes to the battery capacity, Vivo S1 is powered by a 3900mAh battery that can last up a day of fair usage. The battery also hosts a dual-engine fast charging technology.
