Safely unlock S1 with the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning

Since launching its In-Display Fingerprint Scanning technology, Vivo has been leading the industry in bringing consumers a better unlocking experience. With just a single touch on the S1 display, the screen can be instantly unlocked thanks to this technology. The higher fingerprint pixel density and more sophisticated algorithm means a more secure and intuitive way to access the S1. A variety of animation effects are also available to make unlocking the phone easy and fun.

Capture clearer selfies with the 32MP Front Camera on the Halo FullView™ Display

S1 features an industry-leading 32MP Front Camera placed on the Halo FullView™ Display. The 32MP Front Camera also comes with the Ultra HD Resolution feature, which allows users to capture their best selfies with high clarity and precise details. The S1 also makes selfie-taking even more enjoyable and fun thanks to multiple tailoring and enhancing selfie modes, such as AI Face Beauty, Selfie Frontlight, AR Stickers and AI Filter.

The Halo FullView™ Display also provides a fantastic visual impact. Its perfect symmetry provides an uninterrupted viewing experience not only for those amazing selfies, but also for video and gaming. A 6.38-inch* Super AMOLED Display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and the screen-to-body ratio of 90% allow users to enjoy a full view without boundaries and immerse themselves in the ultimate mobile experience.

Get a Taste of Professional Photography with the AI Triple Camera

Professional photography is made easy with the AI Triple Camera. The triple rear camera with the Sony IMX499 Camera Sensor is powered with AI, ensuring professional-grade photos can be taken with ease. The AI Portrait Framing feature also help users form better composition for a perfect shot – the ideal way to capture that key life moment.

To broaden photography horizons, the S1 expands the user’s viewing angle to 120? with the AI Super Wide-Angle Camera. Beyond a great landscape shot, the camera automatically switches to Super Wide-Angle mode when a group shot is detected to ensure it captures all details within the frame.

Powerful, yet long-lasting performance made possible with AI

S1’s powerful octa-core processor, which has clock speeds of up to 2.0GHz, is supported by 6GB RAM and 128GB usable space to ensure fast and smooth performance to meet the user’s multi-tasking and gaming needs. When it comes to speed for gaming, the Ultra Game Mode ensures that gamers can react to every moment of the action by reducing frame-drop by 300%. The newly added Game Countdown even shows the remaining time before a game starts, so that users make better use of their time while waiting for the action.

Vivo’s AI has made another leap forward, with a more powerful Jovi, the dedicated personal assistant that understands user’s needs. With the Smart Button feature, users can access Google Assistant with just one press, and a double press activates the Jovi Image Recognizer. With Jovi Image Recognizer users can access almost a hundred mainstream e-commerce platforms to search through a database of over half a billion products. This is the future of AI shopping.  

The performance lasts thanks to a large 4,500mAh battery and Vivo’s unique Dual-Engine Fast Charging. Now users can leave their power bank at home and focus on making the most of their day. S1 comes in two glamorous colour variants, namely Diamond Black and Skyline Blue.
