Vivo 1814 Images Leaked Via NCC Listing, Reveal a Waterdrop Notch and Rear-Mounted Fingerprint Sensor

A new Vivo smartphone has been spotted on TENAA. This device bears the model number ‘V1814A’. The TENAA listing just reveals a few details of the smartphone and we’re likely to see it launch by the end of the year.


It seems like Vivo is on a roll as the company appears to have quite a few smartphones ready for launch. The company garnered a lot of attention thanks to its implementation of an in-display fingerprint technology, forcing other companies like OnePlus 6 to do the same with their upcoming OnePlus 6T. After the 1814A variant making an apperance on the TENAA website last month, the Vivo 1814 has now been certified by Taiwanese NCC certification agency.

Vivo 1814 Passes NCC Certification

Unlike the 1814A TENAA listing, Vivo 1814 NCC listing shows the smartphone from various angles. As confirmed by the images uploaded by TENAA previously, the V1814 sports a dual-camera setup at the rear with both the sensors stacked vertically. While the V1814A did not have a fingerprint sensor at the rear, the V1814 does come with a fingerprint sensor on the back. We can also see that the smartphone has a waterdrop notch at the top of the display. The NCC images also confirm the lack of fast charging support, which suggests the V1814 variant could be a more budget-friendly device. Vivo 1814A, on the other hand, could be a more expensive device thanks to the in-display fingerprint sensor.


Vivo V1814A Images Revealed Via TENAA, Launch Imminent?

The images revealed by the TENAA listing show the upcoming V1814A sports a design similar to other mid-range smartphones released by Vivo recently. It sports a notched display on the front, while at the rear we find two vertically-stacked camera sensors. There is no fingerprint sensor at the rear, which hints at the presence of an in-display fingerprint sensor. Very little information is currently available on the new Vivo V1814A smartphone. Unfortunately, neither the 3C nor does the MIIT certification give up any leaks. The Vivo V1814A still remains a mystery. The TENAA certification just reveals a few things about the upcoming smartphone. However, those details are pretty common and are expected to be seen on almost any smartphone in 2018. The TENAA listing mentions the networks and connections supported by the V1814A, that it has Dual-SIM slots and runs on the Android operating system.Vivo V1814A TENAA

Perhaps the Dual-SIM thing is something to mention considering Apple was flaunting it for its phones at the launch event of its three new smartphones for 2018. The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) body has also certified the V1814 but like most of the other certifications, it too fails to mention any of the crucial specifications of the smartphone.

In all probability, the company will launch this smartphone in the last month of the year. What we do know is the Vivo is holding a launch event on the 17th of October, where it is expected to announce an upcoming smartphone. Could it be the Vivo Z3?
