Chinese smartphone brand Vivo last year launched its NEX smartphone that comes with a pop-up selfie camera. And now, a report has surfaced online that suggests that the company will be getting this feature in a mid-premium V series smartphone that it is set to launch next month. According to BGR.in, Vivo will be launching the successor of its V11 Pro smartphone next month in India and the upcoming device will sport a pop-up selfie camera.
When the company got in this technology with its Vivo NEX smartphone last year, it was really appreciated as it added on to the futuristic look and feel of the smartphone. Also, because the Vivo NEX had a pop-up selfie camera, it could offer its users a full-screen experience.
Although the report says that the technology will now be seen in Vivo V11 Pro‘s successor, it added that the marketing name of the device has not been finalised yet. We should mention that Nipun Marya, Vivo India’s Director for Brand Strategy had previously said that the Chinese smartphone brand will be launching the Vivo V11 Pro successor in the first half of 2019.
The report also added that according to people who are familiar with the matter, the device will be launching in India next month. However, much like the marketing name of Vivo V11 Pro’s successor, the launch details and the specifications of the smartphone are not known as of now.
To recall, Vivo V11 Pro was launched in India in September 2018 at a price tag of Rs 25,990. Although the marketing name of the upcoming smartphone has not been disclosed yet, we should point out that Vivo usually goes for odd numbers when it comes to smartphone names. So, while reports suggest that Vivo would be naming the device as V12 Pro, we would not be surprised to see it being named as V13 Pro or V15 Pro. It is also worth noticing that Vivo launched the V9 mobile in the first half of 2018 and the V11 Pro in the second half of the year.
A previous report also suggested that Vivo V11 Pro’s successor will be priced between Rs 20,000 and Rs 30,000 in India and will be available via online as well as offline channels.
