Vivo is bringing the S1 Pro to Southeast Asia, but it has little in common with the original Vivo S1 Pro launched in China back in May.

With a quad-camera setup on the back and a water drop notch on the front, the new Vivo S1 Pro looks more similar to the recently unveiled Vivo S5. The mid-range device targets the fashion-seeking youth market segment. It was released in the Philippines on Wednesday and will later roll out to Indonesia and Malaysia.

The Southeast Asian S1 Pro runs on a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 665. The four cameras on the back include a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultrawide angle shooter, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. There’s also a 32MP selfie camera on the front. The 6.38-inch screen uses a 1080p Super AMOLED display and an in-display fingerprint sensor. The new S1 Pro starts at about US$314.
