In August, Vivo V29e was launched in the Indian market, featuring a 50MP selfie camera with Eye AF. Today, Vivo launched two new phones under the V29 series, completing the lineup. The Vivo V29 & V29 Pro were launched in India today, the successors of the Vivo V27 & V27 Pro.
The design language is almost similar to the V27 series, with slight changes here and there. The V29 starts at ₹32,999, and the V29 Pro at ₹39,999.
Vivo V29 has a glass back and comes in three color options – Himalayan Blue, Majestic Red, and Space Black. The Majestic Red option has a color-changing back panel. The phone weighs 186g, and the thickness is 0.746cm or 7.46mm. There is a mono speaker, so that’s disappointing at this price. The fingerprint sensor is placed under the display.
The display is a 6.78-inch 10-bit AMOLED (BOE Q9) with a 1.5K resolution (2800 × 1260 pixels), HDR10+, and 120Hz refresh rate. The peak brightness is 1300 nits, and there is 2,160Hz PWM dimming. The chip is the Snapdragon 778G, compared to the Dimensity 7200 in the Vivo V27. There is 8GB or 12GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage.
The battery size is 4,600mAh, and the phone supports 80W fast charging.
Speaking of cameras, the Vivo V29 has three on the rear. The primary camera has a 50MP sensor with OIS support. The second camera is for ultrawide shots and has an 8MP OV08D1 sensor. The third camera has a 2MP depth sensor. The phone has a 50MP Samsung JN1 sensor with Eye AF for selfies.
Finally, Funtouch OS 13 runs out of the box, based on Android 13.
Here is the pricing for the Indian market –
8GB + 128GB – ₹32,999
12GB + 256GB – ₹36,999
VIVO V29 PRO
Design-wise, the Vivo V29 Pro is identical to the V29. The weight is slightly more at 188g, but the thickness is the same. The display is the same, and so is the battery and charging speed. The camera setup is almost identical, except the Vivo V29 Pro has a 12MP 2X Telephoto camera with a Sony IMX663 sensor instead of the 2MP depth sensor.
The performance is better on the Pro, thanks to the MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chipset. Interestingly, this is the same chip that powers the Vivo V27 Pro.
And well, that’s all about the V29 Pro. There isn’t much difference between the vanilla and the Pro model.
