[Exclusive] Vivo X70 Series to Launch in India on September 30, Only Two Models Expected

Vivo might skip the vanilla X70 variant in India and launch the two other phones in the series instead.


Vivo launched the Vivo X70 series on September 9 in China with the Vivo X70, X70 Pro and X70 Pro Plus, and Vivo’s flagship series is arriving very soon in India. While Vivo has not confirmed the launch of Vivo X70 series in India officially, tipster Yogesh suggest the flagship series will be unveiled in India on September 30.

However, the lineup will only include two models which according to a report, will be the Vivo X70 Pro and the X70 Pro+. That means the vanilla Vivo X70 could be skipped for the Indian market or might be launched at a later date.

All three phones come with some key upgrades, especially in the camera department.

Vivo X70 Series Launch Date in India Tipped

Vivo X60 pro Plus

As per tipster Yogesh, Vivo will launch the Vivo X70 Series in India on September 30. Yogesh further tipped that Vivo will launch only two models from the X70 series in India and as per the MoneyControl report, they’re the X70 Pro and Pro+. It’s likely that the vanilla X70 is being skipped because both the X70 and X70 Pro share similar specs. The only difference between the X70 and X70 Pro is that the latter has a curved display and a different camera setup.

The Vivo X70 series was already expected to launch by September end. Yogesh further states that the pricing will be similar to the X60 series launched in India earlier this year. As mentioned earlier, Vivo is yet to announce the official launch date for the Indian market.

We had previously reported that the Vivo X70 Pro model could launch with a starting price tag of Rs 49,990 and the X70 Pro Plus at Rs 69,990. As these are the rumoured prices, we would advise our readers to take the leaked information with a pinch of salt.
