Vivo S1 launch in India is taking place on August 7, the Chinese company confirmed by sending a ‘Block Your Calendar’ invite to the media. The latest Vivo S-series phone that was launched in Indonesia earlier this month has been teased in the Indian market for the past few days. It features a full-HD+ Super AMOLED display and carries a triple rear camera setup. Other highlights of the Vivo S1 include an octa-core MediaTek Helio P65 SoC, 128GB of onboard storage, and a 4,500mAh battery.
The formal invite doesn’t reveal any details about the price and availability of the Vivo S1. However, it confirms that the company is set to bring the new S-series smartphone on August 7.
The past teasers that have been posted through the social media channels of Vivo India showcased some of the key features of the Vivo S1. The company has also roped Bollywood actress Sara Ali Khan to kick off the promotional campaigns of the new offering in the country.
Vivo S1 price in India (expected)
The Vivo S1 price in India hasn’t yet been announced officially. However, it is expected to be similar to what was announced in Indonesia.
