Vivo S1 Pro is coming soon to Pakistan, Launch set for January next year

Launched back in November, the global variant of Vivo S1 Pro will soon be making a debut in other Asian markets, including Pakistan. The scoop comes from an exclusive WhatMobile source, which reports that Vivo will be launching Vivo S1 Pro in January next year in Pakistan. The global variant features a dew-drop notch for the selfie camera and a novel diamond-shaped camera housing.


We’re looking at a Super AMOLED display that measures 6.38 inches and produces an FHD+ resolution. The selfie camera housed inside the notch allows for a respectable 90 % screen-to-body ratio. The bezels are thin and the chin is fairly light. The display also houses an in-display fingerprint reader.

The rear-panel on S1 pro is offered in refreshing Fancy Sky, Nebula Blue, and Knight Black hues feature a subtle gradient-look. The panel also embeds a glossy housing for the quad-camera system – three of which occupy the center, while the fourth one is pushed to the side. You’ll also find an accent line in the center, which makes the module’s design pop.


The 48-megapixel sensor on the back is paired with a megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter and a pair of 2-megapixel depth and macro sensors. For snapping selfies, the Vivo S1 Pro packs a decent 32-megapixel shooter.

If you go by the spec sheet, the S1 Pro should offer flagship-tier performance with its Snapdragon 665 chipset, which is combined with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage. Note that there’s no 8 GB/ 256 GB variant, but you can get a 256 GB storage version with six gigs of memory. The one with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage is expected to arrive in Pakistan at the Vivo price tag mentioned below.

At any rate, you can expand this storage up to 256 GB, thanks to microSD card support. The power cell is a major upgrade from the May variant. This time you get 4,500 mAh of power with support for dual-engine 18W fast-charging. The hardware runs on FunTouch OS 9.2 (which is based on Android P) and has a built-in system-wide dark mode. WhatMobile expects it to retail for somewhere around 48,999 PKR once it hits Pakistani markets.
