Vivo S1 Pro: better cameras, more RAM, Snapdragon 675 and periscope

ByLinky Johnson 2019-05-07 1258

If a few weeks ago we knew a live S1 that reminded us a lot of the live V15, it was clear that it would soon arrive the new live S1 Pro, something like the Chinese version of the live V15 Pro, which ironically was official before the normal version.

Vivo S1 Pro

The Vivo S1 Pro is very similar to the Vivo S1 visually, although there are some important changes inside. For starters, it includes Snapdragon 675, while the normal S1 Vivo was riding the helium P70 from MediaTek.

Vivo S1 Pro triple camera and retractable front camera

In the photo section, yes, the retractable front camera is maintained, although it raises the bet to 32 megapixels. Similarly, the rear camera is still triple, although the lenses have been improved.

Triple camera of 48 MP

It is the same configuration (and aperture), but the main camera doubles its pixels reaching 48 MP. By default, it gathers four pixels to one for better clarity and luminosity, resulting in a 12 MP photo, but if you want you can also use all 48 MP raw. The other two cameras, the 8 MP F\/2.2 Wide angle and the 5 MP F\/2.4 depth lens remain the same.

It also repeats the large screen that is not interrupted by any notch, hole in the screen or edge too pronounced, except the chin. On paper it looks identical to that of Vivo S1, although it is a bit smaller.

Also Super AMOLED and with the same resolution, the screen of Vivo S1 Pro is 6.39" instead of 6.53" of Vivo S1, and the result is seen in the final size of the device, which is smaller and thinner.

Vivo S1 Pro processor and storage

The most relevant change of the Vivo S1 Pro is in the processor. The jump is from MediaTek to Qualcomm, from which borrows the Snapdragon 675 AIE. AIE stands for artificial intelligence engine, or artificial intelligence engine of Qualcomm.

In terms of memory and storage, this version also goes a step further than its predecessor. It reaches up to 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage, although not both at the same time. There is a version with 6 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage and another of 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage. You can not have it all.

Vivo S1 Pro Versions and prices

This Vivo S1 Pro is for sale in China in two colors: blue and red and in two versions, with 6 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage and with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of storage. Both cost exactly the same: 2,698 yuan equivalent to about 357 euros. It is not known if they will be sold in other regions or if they will be sold under another name.
