Today, Chinese phone maker Vivo announced that the previously launched Vivo S1 is now officially on sale at the price of 2298 Yuan ($340).
The vivo S1 adopts a “zero-screen full-screen” design. Basically meaning there are no notches, whether wide or water drop, and no holes for cameras either. This allows the 6.53 inches big screen to bring a screen to body ratio of 90.95%, meanwhile resolution is 2340×1080.
In order to achieve the full-screen design with no cuts on the display, the Vivo S1 uses a lift-type front camera solution, just like on the NEX. So, when you want to snap a selfie, the camera will automatically pop-up.
According to Vivo, all the components used to light the camera are made with an advanced physical vapor deposition (PVD) coloring technology to create a harmonious beauty whether it is raised or hidden.
In addition to that, the camera on Vivo’s S1 has a resolution of 24.8MP. Vivo says that this allows the sensor to identify 103 basic feature points of a face and then make it look “nicer” with AI beautify algorithms. You’ll be able to thin your face, rhinoplasty, modify the chin and so on. It can also be combined with a variety of studio-level lighting effects, so that you look like a real star.
Hardware wise, the Vivo S1 is equipped with a MediaTek Helio P70 processor, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Main rear cameras on the phone has a resolution of 12MP, the secondary with a wide angle lens is 8MP meanwhile the third is 5MP of resolution and is used to create the bokeh effect.
Finally, the smartphone comes with a 3940mAh capacity battery and runs Funtouch OS 9 out of the box.
