An unannounced Vivo mid-range smartphone with V1831A and V1831T variants had been certified by TENAA in China a few days back. The images and specifications listed on the TENAA website suggested the smartphone may be the Vivo V15 that was launched in Thailand recently. According to a few Chinese leaksters, however, the smartphone will be launched in China as the Vivo S1, which would make it the company’s first S-series device. Ahead of its launch in China, the V1831A variant of the smartphone has popped up on Geekbench.

The Vivo V1831A Geekbench listing confirms the smartphone will be powered by a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset under the hood, clubbed with 6GB of RAM. As for the benchmark scores, the smartphone managed to score 1,539 in the single-core test and 5,813 in the multi-core test. In terms of software, the listing confirms the S1 will be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box.
As confirmed by the smartphone’s TENAA listing recently, the Vivo S1 will be more or less similar to the V15 in most areas. The S1 will feature a 6.59-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. On the back of the phone will be a triple-camera setup with a 12MP primary sensor, 8MP secondary sensor, and a 5MP sensor. Unlike the Vivo V15, the TENAA listings revealed the S1 will come with a less impressive 24.8-megapixel pop-up selfie camera. The fingerprint sensor will be mounted on the back of the handset. Fueling the internals of the phone will be a 4000mAh capacity battery with fast charging support. According to rumors, the Vivo S1 may be priced at somewhere around 2,000 yuan ($298) in China at launch. In terms of design, the Vivo S1 will be identical to the Vivo V15 sold in Thailand.
