Vivo S1 to launch in India on 7 August, expected to come with a Helio P70 SoC

Vivo S1 is expected to feature a triple rear camera setup that will include 12 MP + 8 MP + 8 MP sensors.


Vivo is all geared up to launch its S-series in India, beginning with Vivo S1, which was already launched in China back in March. This smartphone was launched at a price of CNY  2,298 (roughly Rs 23,540) in China. Looking at this China pricing, we can expect Vivo S1 to cost somewhere near Rs 20,000, same as Vivo V15 (Review).

Now as per the invite that we have got, it is confirmed that Vivo S1 will be launching on 7 August in India.
