While everyone is talking about how the Xiaomi Mi 10 5G is overpriced for the Indian market, Vivo comes out of nowhere and launches a phone priced at Rs 27,990 that comes with the same SOC that powered last year’s Vivo Z1 Pro (the first Snapdragon 712-powered phone in India).
Well, Vivo is very popular in the Indian offline market, and so there is no doubt the company will be able to sell quite a lot of units of this device. Still, when we compare it to the phones priced similar to it, there is no doubt that it is a very overpriced phone from the brand.
VIVO V19 – DESIGN & SPECIFICATIONS
The phone comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on the front & the back. There is a punch-hole design on the front where the dual selfie cameras are placed in a pill-shaped cutout. The Quad camera setup is placed on the rear in a rectangular camera module. The fingerprint scanner is under the display & the phone has the USB Type-C port on the bottom alongside the headphone jack.
There is a 6.44-inch E3 Super AMOLED display on the front with Full-HD+ resolution. Snapdragon 712 SOC powers this device & there is 8GB RAM along with 128/256GB storage. Vivo V19 comes with a 4,500mAh battery & supports 33W Fast Charging via the Type-C port. Android 10 runs out of the box with FunTouch OS 10 on top.
There is a Quad camera setup on the back that includes a primary 48 Megapixel camera, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2 Megapixel depth sensor, and a 2 Megapixel Macro camera. There are dual cameras on the front that include a primary 32 Megapixel camera and secondary 8 Megapixel wide-angle camera.
