Do you remember the VIVO S1 which was launched around 4 months ago? Well, that VIVO S1 was the beginning of the VIVO S series. After that, VIVO launched one more variant of the S series; VIVO S5. And, guess what? VIVO has just added another member to the S1 series, the VIVO S1 Pro.
VIVO S1 Pro is now available for pre-order on daraz at a 5% discounted price of Rs. 34,990. The original Vivo S1 Pro price in Nepal is set Rs. 36,790. It’s available in two colors: Jazzy Blue and Mystic Black. And the delivery is set to start from 29th December.
VIVO S1 Pro Overview
The VIVO S1 Pro has a pretty stylish design. The front is not flashy at all; it just has the plain water-drop notch with a teeny tiny notch. The rear, on the other hand, is rather flamboyant. Especially the diamond-shaped cut-out for the quad-camera array is quite eye-catching.
It’s not just the design that’s appealing about the device. The phone’s 6.38” FHD+ AMOLED screen is quite a sight for the eye as well. One of the major perks of having the AMOLED screen is the in-display fingerprint sensor. By itself, the sensor looks quite fast and smooth as well. The animation produced on unlocking the phone by fingerprint sensor seems neat too.
Under the hood, the phone features a Snapdragon 665 SoC. The processor is coupled with an 8/128GB internals. The processor is quite alright and there’s no flexibility in the storage section, which is a slight bummer, in my opinion. On the surface, the phone runs on Android 9 with Funtouch 9.2 on top.
Moving on to the quad-camera array, the rear setup is entirely centered around the 48MP primary sensor. Aside from the 48MP, the array consists of an 8MP ultrawide, a 2MP depth sensor and a 2MP dedicated macro camera. Hiding in the water-drop notch is a 32MP selfie camera as well.
Finally, we have a huge 4500mAh battery life that powers the device easily for a day. In addition, we also have the 18W fast charge which can get the phone charged up in no time at all.

Vivo S1 Pro Price in Nepal, Avaibility and Impression
The VIVO S1 Pro considering every specification is more or less a complete phone. Whether it’s in terms of display or battery, I believe VIVO S1 Pro has considered each and every aspect. The slightly outdated processor and no flexibility in storage are a little disappointing but it is not enough to stay away from this device.
The phone is now available for pre-order on daraz and it costs Rs. 34,990. Snapdragon 665 for 34k seems overpriced but then again it does have an AMOLED display and in-screen fingerprint sensor. Thus it is a good alternative to Samsung A50s but it won’t compete against the likes of Redmi Note 8 Pro.
Well, that’s all about the VIVO S1 Pro. So, what do you think about the device? Do let us know in the comments down below.
