Notably, the Vivo S1 Pro was launched in other countries like China and the Philippines a few weeks ago, and the company is expected to bring the same version to the Indian market as well. The Vivo S1 Pro will be a successor to the Vivo S1 which made its debut in India in August 2019. That said, the Vivo S1 Pro will be the second smartphone in Vivo 'S' series.
