Yesterday, we published a story that talked about the imminent launch of the new Vivo V19 in India. Back then, only 91Mobiles and popular leakster Ishan Agarwal had posted details about this new mid-range device from Vivo. Hours after we filed that story, Vivo India confirmed the existence and the imminent launch of the handset via their Twitter account. While the official account did not tweet anything about the device, they did update the Twitter profile header image in which some of the key features of the Vivo V19 have been revealed.
Vivo V19 Official Image, Key Specs Revealed
The header image clearly shows that the India-bound Vivo V19 is different from another model of the V19 that was recently launched in Indonesia. The Indian version gets dual punch-hole cameras at the front instead of the single punch hole camera that the other version gets. Vivo also seems pretty clear about the V19’s positioning as a camera-centric device with almost all the highlighted features on the promotional image talking about the camera alone. The poster talks about the phone’s Super Night Selfie, Aura Screen Light, and Super Wide Angle imaging capabilities.
Vivo V19 Specifications, Expected Price in India
As outlined in our earlier articles, the India-bound Vivo V19 will use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC instead of the SD 675 chipset used on the Indonesian version. The phone will be offered in 8GB RAM options in two storage capacities — 128GB and 256GB. Users also get the option to expand the memory using microSD cards. And yes, there is a triple slot so that consumers will be able to use the phone in dual SIM mode and also take advantage of additional storage.
The Vivo V19 will also feature a 6.44-inch AMOLED panel. Apart from boasting of FHD+ resolution, the display is also taller than standard displays thanks t the 20:9 aspect ratio. The display also houses the in-display fingerprint scanner. The phone will be offered in two color options Mystic Silver and Piano Black, and both the variants get glass-clad, curved rear panels.
The Vivo V19 gets a formidable quad-camera setup at the rear consisting of a 32MP primary, and an 8MP ultrawide angle camera. The two other cameras are used for macro shots and depth sensing. At the front, nestled inside the dual punch holes are two cameras — the first with a 32MP sensor and the second one with an 8MP sensor mated to a super wide-angle lens.
With its large 4,500 mAh battery, the phone should easily last you a day even with heavy usage. It is also notable that the phone supports 33W Vivo Flash Charge 2.0. The phone is based on Android 10 and runs Vivo’s own FunTouch OS. Vivo is yet to indicate the pricing of this handset, but current expectations are that the phone will at least be priced around the Rs 25,000 mark at launch, which is expected to happen by the first week of April.
