Vivo has been fairly successful in India, with it’s latest V series device, the V19 being one of the most sold devices of Q2. Today, the company has launched a device that is part of it’s S series of devices, the Vivo S1 Prime in Malaysia. This device seems quite similar to the S1 Pro with some minute differences. What are those differences and what are the specifications of the device? Let us discuss the same in brief.
Vivo S1 Prime Specifications
The Vivo S1 Prime features a 6.38-inch display which is an AMOLED panel, with a resolution of FHD+ (1080*2340 pixels).

In terms of performance, the device is equipped with the Snapdragon 665 processor with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage.
When it comes to the optics, the device features a quad camera setup, in the iconic S series diamond-shaped module, with a primary 48-megapixel sensor paired with an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 2-megapixel depth sensor and a final 2-megapixel macro lens for macro or close-up photography. In terms of the selfie snapper, the device houses a 16-megapixel selfie camera. As for the battery, the device is equipped with an adequately sized 4500 mAh battery with support for 18W fast charging via the Type-C Port.
