An unannounced Vivo smartphone with the S1 moniker had been leaked online earlier this month. Rumors had suggested the smartphone would be launched alongside the X27 and X27 Pro smartphones on March 19. Unfortunately, however, that did not happen. The Vivo S1 has now popped up on Google’s Android Enterprise catalog.
Vivo S1 to Feature a 6.3-inch Display?
Previous leaks had suggested the Vivo S1 will sport a 6.53-inch IPS display with 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The smartphone’s Android Enterprise listing, on the other hand, claims the device has a 6.3-inch sized display. So far, it was believed that the S1 could just be a rebranded V15 for the Chinese market. If the Android Enterprise listing is accurate, this would mean that the S1 is actually not a rebranded V15.
Apart from the display size, Vivo S1 Android Enterprise listing tells us the smartphone packs 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Unsurprisingly, the smartphone comes with a fingerprint sensor and runs on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system. Just like the recently launched Vivo X27 and X27 Pro smartphones, you can expect the S1 to run Vivo’s custom Funtouch OS 9.0 layer on top of Android Pie.
The Vivo S1 is rumored to be powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 octa-core chipset clocked at up to 2.1 GHz with a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. At the rear, it is tipped to have a triple-lens camera system with a 12MP primary sensor, 8MP secondary sensor, and a 5MP tertiary depth sensor. It is expected to feature a pop-up selfie camera module with a 24.8MP resolution sensor instead of the 16MP sensor on the Vivo X27. Since the smartphone’s Android Enterprise listing contradicts the previously rumored display size, we cannot be sure if the rest of the smartphone’s rumored specifications will turn out to be accurate.
