A tweet from Paras reveals that Vivo will launch the Vivo V29 5G smartphone in the global markets by mid-August. Once launched in the global markets, Vivo will later launch the smartphone in India by early September. The tipster didn’t reveal any explicit launch date of the smartphone in India. Previously, the smartphone was tipped to launch in June 2023. However, the launch got delayed for multiple unknown reasons. The tipster is yet to reveal the price range of the upcoming device in India.
A recent report from tipster Sudhanshu revealed that Vivo might price the device around CZK 11,990 in Czech. The pricing converts to approximately EUR 500 or Rs 45,300.
