Chinese phone maker VIVO had earlier this year announced the VIVO S1 with a pop-up camera in its home market. The brand earlier this week announced a fresh mid-range smartphone with the same VIVO S1 moniker in Indonesia, and other international markets, albeit with a different design, and internals. Now, the brand has now announced the same international version of the S1 in its home market under a fresh moniker – the VIVO Y7s, given that it already has a device with the S1 moniker in the country.
So for peeps in China, the Indonesian version of the VIVO S1 has landed in China as the VIVO Y7s. It is exactly the same device launched in Indonesia yesterday, but you get more RAM on the Vivo Y7s and a 16MP selfie camera.
The device is available in either Sea Wind Blue with a pink gradient or Wave Blue with a near-black finish. Flash sale will be held in China on July 20 €230/$260.
