Vivo V19 launched at Rs 27,990, comes with Snapdragon 712
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.
