Chinese handset maker and India’s third-largest smartphone brand, Vivo, today introduced the Vivo S series in the sub-continent. The first smartphone under the new series is the Vivo S1 which boasts of an impressive gradient finish aimed at the youth. The Vivo S1 is the first phone in India to launch with the MediaTek Helio P65 chipset- the successor to the successful Helio P60 SoC. Unlike the Vivo Z1 Pro, which is an online-only phone, the Vivo S1 is a smartphone focussed for the offline market.

The Vivo S1 comes in three variants with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage and the phone offers three cameras on the rear side alongside a 32MP front-facing camera. Read onto know more regarding the Vivo S1 and its pricing in India.

The phone is constructed out of plastic, much like other Vivo phones available in the market right now.
