Vivo Y1s is set to launch in India soon according to a report. The new smartphone, which is already available in some global markets, will be the company’s latest model in the Vivo Y series that is targeted at young smartphone customers. The Vivo Y1s comes with a MediaTek Helio P35 SoC and features a waterdrop-style display notch. The Vivo phone also packs a 4,030mAh battery. Unlike some of the recent smartphones by the company, including the Vivo V20 and V20 SE, that come with compelling specifications and are available in mid-range segment, the Vivo Y1s is likely to come as a budget option with an entry-level hardware.

Gadgets 360 has reached out to Vivo for clarity on the launch and will update this space when the company responds.
