Interestingly, Samsung is set to launch its Galaxy Note 10 on the same date during an Unpacked event that will take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The S series launch date has been confirmed just days after the company had released a teaser of the same on its YouTube channel and other social media platforms.
"All new S series coming soon," the video had said, with revealing any details about the series. To recall, the Vivo S1 was originally launched in China in March, alongside the Vivo S1 Pro. The smartphone was later introduced in Indonesia with few modifications. It was launched in two distinct colour options: Cosmic Green and Skyline Blue. Even though the video doesn't confirm if the same model will be launched in the Indian market or not. This would be Vivo's second smartphone in the country in a gap of one month with Vivo Z1Pro launched on July 3.
