Last week, Thai certification agency had certified Vivo’s upcoming V15 Pro smartphone, confirming its marketing name. The NBTC has now certified the vanilla V15, which is expected to share at least a few key features in common with the Pro version. Both the V15 and V15 Pro smartphones are expected to be launched in India on February 20, just a few days before MWC 2019 begins in Barcelona.
Vivo V15 Expected to Sport the Same 32MP Selfie Camera as the V15 Pro
The Vivo 1819 NBTC certification confirms the smartphone will be launched as the Vivo V15. Apart from the name of the handset, the NBTC certification includes no other information regarding the vanilla V15. Based on previous leaks, we expect the Vivo V15 to be nearly identical to the V15 Pro in the design department. Both smartphones are likely to feature the same 32MP pop-up selfie camera with a host of AI-powered enhancements. The rest of the smartphone’s hardware specifications, however, are yet to be confirmed. Similar to the current V11 and V11 Pro, there is a good chance that the V15 and V15 Pro will have a few major differences.
The Vivo V15 Pro will sport a 6.39-inch Full HD+ Ultra FullView Super AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and an In-display fingerprint sensor. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor under the hood, a significant upgrade compared to the aging Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset that powers the current V11 Pro. The V15 Pro will only be offered in a single memory configuration in India with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Just like the V15 Pro, you can expect to see a microSD card slot for further expansion up to 256GB. On the back of the handset will be an impressive 48MP + 8MP + 5MP triple-camera setup at the rear. For selfies, as mentioned earlier, the smartphone will have a 32MP pop-up camera. Keeping the lights on will be a 3700mAh capacity non-removable battery with Vivo’s Dual Engine fast charging technology. The V15 Pro is likely to be priced under INR 30,000 in India. The V15, on the other hand, is expected to be priced under INR 25,000.
