Vivo S1 update brings improved fingerprint recognition and camera performance

“The Vivo S1 update also brings fixes for abnormal power consumption caused by third-party apps

Vivo S1 is now receiving version PD1913F_EX_A_1.6.17 update, which comes as the handset’s first major software update since its launch earlier this month. With the updated FunTouch OS version 1.6.17, the brand claims the Vivo S1 fingerprint recognition logic has been improved; in simple terms, the smartphone should be able to recognise fingerprints faster and ease up the authentication process for users. The download size for the new Vivo S1 update sits at around 350MB and the brand is said to be rolling out the update in a phased manner.

Apart from improved fingerprint recognition, the new software update has also been claimed to fix the abnormal power consumption caused by third-party apps. The update changelog also mentions it should optimise the compatibility of the Wi-Fi networks as well. It also mentions, “Improved camera functions for a better photo and video shooting experience.” However, there is no mention of the exact changes that the update brings to the camera app.
