Vivo S1 Android Smartphone with AI Triple Rear Cameras, Arriving Soon in the Philippines

Chinese tech giant Vivo Mobile is slated to release a new Android smartphone in our country, which is targeted towards young consumers who see their handsets as a reliable companion be at school, in the office, or on hangouts with friends.

The first model in company's all-new S-Series, the Vivo S1 comes with a slew of exciting and features that will delight students and young professionals who demand a lot from their smartphones.

Looking at these initial lifestyle photos of the device released by Vivo Mobile Philippines, it's clear that design is one of the strongest suits of the Vivo S1.

Available in Skyline Blue, Cosmic Green, and Diamond Black, Vivo S1 flaunts a high-gloss overall finish along with under-glass, gleaming diamond pattern on the back plate. This high-end look will definitely make a few heads turn when you take this model out of your pocket, bag, or purse.

Vivo S1 is also big on imaging capabilities.

At the back, it has three AI cameras comprising of a 16 MegaPixel f/1.8 primary shooter that should perform well even in low light, an 8 MegaPixel secondary camera with ultra-wide angle lens for capturing landscape and group shots, and a tertiary 2 MP Depth Sensor enabling Bokeh Effect when snapping portraits of your barkada.

In front, the device sports a high-resolution 32 MegaPixel f/2.0 snapper that's powered by the company's AI Beauty software, delivering selfies and groufies that are instantly ready for sharing on Facebook or Instagram.

Good enough for gaming and performing day-to-day mobile tasks, Vivo S1 runs its Funtouch 9 skinned Android 9.0 Pie operating system with an energy-efficient 12nm Octa Core MediaTek Helio P65 AI processor that's complemented by either 4GB or 8GB of RAM as well as 128GB of internal storage that can be augmented using the dedicated microSD card slot. Yup, no need to sacrifice Dual SIM capability to get more space for your large files.

Another highlight of this device would have to be its ultra-large 4,500 mAh battery pack that should deliver more than a whole day of uptime - easily - with regular use. What's even better is that this smartphone supports 18W fast charging which greatly cuts the amount of time that it takes to charge the handset from 0 to 100%.

For privacy and security, Vivo S1 has an In-Display Fingerprint Scanner and Face Unlock technology. These two features add a veritable layer of protection against those who want to check your phone's content without your consent.

So how much will it be and when will be launched in the Philippines? As yet, Vivo Mobile PH hasn't disclosed the official release details of this model. However, Vivo S1 4GB RAM version dons a price of INR 17,990 in India so I guess that variant should have price tag of less than PHP 15,000 when it lands here - most likely - before August 2019 ends.
