It’s not been too long since you last read about the Vivo V19 here on Gear. In fact, the previous article around this new mid-range smartphone was posted just a few hours ago on this website. Anyway, the reason we are publishing yet another piece around the V19 is that Vivo India’s Twitter account recently announced the India launch date for the phone, and no one seems to have noticed. The company which usually sends out press releases announcing major launches apparently did not send any release announcing the imminent launch of this new mid-range device. The tweet announcing the launch date was sent out by Vivo a few hours after we reported about the company officially acknowledging the existence of an India-specific version of the V19. This, as you might now know, was revealed when they updated their Twitter header image with an image of the V19.
Anyway, let us get back to the topic at hand.
Vivo V19 India Launch Date
March 26 is the date on which Vivo will introduce the new V19 Pro in India. It remains unclear at this time if this will be an online-only launch event because of the ongoing Coronavirus scare. However, with the launch less than ten days away, we have reasons to believe that it would indeed by an online event streamed live. That being said, there has not been any official confirmation from Vivo about this as yet.
