Vivo has launched the Vivo S1 smartphone in Indonesia, Pakistan and is now prepping up to launch in India on August 7. Vivo is well known for confusing the buyers by naming the same smartphone with different monikers in different countries and sometimes launching the smartphone with different specs under the same name. The Vivo S1 was initially launched in China as a rebranded Vivo V15 that was launched in India a few months ago. The Vivo S1 Chinese variant and global variants are both different in terms of specs and features. Now, adding more confusion, the company is preparing to launch the Vivo S1 (Indian variant) in Russia. The device will go on preorders from August 1 as well in Russia. We at IndiaShopps has exclusively obtained the official teaser of the Vivo V17 Neo that is going to launch in Russia very soon.
