According to some reports the Chinese smartphone company has postponed the launch of Vivo V19 in India to April 3. Earlier the device was scheduled to launch in the country on March 26 but in view of the ongoing crisis, the company has decided to push the launch date a few days further. The handset is an update to the Vivo V17 that was launched in the country last year. V19 is also supposed to be a redesigned variant of the model which was launched in Indonesia earlier this month. However, there are going to be slight changes in the design factor as well as specifications.
First reported by 91Mobiles, the new launch date for Vivo V19 is April 3. However, the company has not officially confirmed the new launch date but it has removed the old poster which mentioned the March 26th unveiling. On the same day, its Chinese counterpart Realme has also announced to launch Realme Narzo 10 series in India that is March 26.
The upcoming Vivo’s smartphone is a rebranded variant of the smartphone recently launched in Indonesia. But the Indian variant will have some changes as per some reports.
Reportedly the Indian variant of Vivo V19 will arrive with a 6.44-inch FHD+ Dual iView E3 Super AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and 409ppi. Under the hood, there will be 2.3GHz octa-core Snapdragon 712 SoC paired with 8GB of RAM and two storage variants – 128GB and 256GB. Whereas the Indonesian variant comes with Snapdragon 675 chipset.
It will go with an all-glass body rather than a plastic body. It will be available in two colour options Mystic Silver and Piano Black. The display is expected to have support for an in-display fingerprint sensor. It will run on FunTouch OS 10 based on the top of Android 10.
In terms of cameras, Vivo V19 will be featuring an L shaped camera module consisting of four rear cameras. The camera set up will include a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP super wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens and a 2MP depth sensor. In addition to this, the Indian variant will come with an additional selfie camera. Instead of a single front camera, there is going to be a dual punch-hole selfie camera that is going to include a 32MP main sensor and an 8MP wide-angle lens.
It is likely to come with a 4,500mAh battery with a 33W Vivo Flash Charge 2.0 support instead of an 18W fast charger that bundles with the Indonesian model.
In terms of connectivity, it will include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G and Type-C port. It is expected to measure 159.64×75.04×8.5mm and weigh 186.5 grams.
