The Chinese smartphone brand, Vivo, is all set to launch a new series of smartphones in India, and it is the Vivo S series. To recall, the people came to know about the launch of the Vivo S series in India only a few weeks back, and Vivo announced that it would be bringing the Vivo S1 into the Indian market. Now the Vivo S1 is a no new contender in the tech industry as the phone has already seen the light of the day in other international markets and now it is going to make its way to India as well. If you are wondering that the international variant of the Vivo S1 would be all that different from the Indian variant, that is also not going to be the case.
