Vivo has slashed the price of the S1 Pro by Rs. 1,000 in the Indian market. The device is now available for purchase at Rs. 19,990. The phone was launched back in January this year and was made available in three color shades.
The Vivo S1 Pro received a price hike due to new GST norms and was retailing at Rs. 20,990. Now, it will again be selling at its initial launch price of Rs. 19,990. It looks like the price cut is also valid at the offline stores and is already reflecting on platforms like Amazon and Flipkart as well. This update has been tipped by the Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom via a tweet.
Do note that, the price of the handset did go down in March and it was selling at Rs. 18,990 and it went up again post the offer period. The Vivo S1 Pro is available in Mystic Black, Jazzy Blue, and Dreamy White color variants.
