Vivo V19 and Vivo V19 pro Scheduled to Go Official Soon; Might Launch Next Month
Vivo India’s online store is going to be taking pre-orders for the upcoming Vivo V19 by the end of February, and as per the source, Vivo V19 should hit the store shelves in March in India which usually means it’ll head straight to Pakistan right after. The Vivo V19 and V19 Pro duo is supposed to lop off the pop-camera module in favor of a dual-punch hole cutout — making it the first Vivo phone to feature this design.
Now, if you go by Vivo’s previous release schedule, the launch event mentioned above will unveil the ‘Pro’ variant, and the base variant will follow it.
The report doesn’t detail any additional key specifications for the Vivo V19 Pro, but it does speculate that the secondary lens could either be a depth sensor or an ultrawide lens. Its predecessor, Vivo V17 Pro debuted with an ultrawide-angle shooter (but it was mounted on a pop-up module), and Vivo V19 could carry over that exact lens.
The launch event is meant for the Indian market, and rumor has it that the Chinese manufacturer will be sponsoring the popular cricket event, the Indian Premier League. So it stands to reason that Vivo will be unveiling its next sub-flagship lineup around the IPL 2020 season, which starts from March 23. Finally, the ‘Pro’ and standard editions are expected to retail for the starting price of 78,999 PKR and 29,999 PKR.
To recall, the Vivo V17 Pro rocks a 32-megapixel selfie shooter alongside an 8-megapixel ultrawide angle lens. On the back, you’re looking at a 48MP AI quad-camera stacked vertically with an LED flash sandwiched between the lenses.
The rear-shell offers a ‘glass slab’ look in Glacier Ice and Midnight Ocean colors. The Pro variant of the Vivo V17 runs on a Snapdragon 675 chipset, with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory baked into it. It is powered by a 4100 mAh battery supported by Dual-Engine Fast-charging.
