Vivo launched a new mid-range smartphone in India today, the Vivo V29e. The “V” series from the brand is known for offering some of the best camera phones in their respective price segments, and the V29e is no exception. In India, the phone starts at ₹26,999, and for the price, it does sound overpriced, considering the processor it comes with.

The design is one of the highlights of this phone. It features a curved display, and the brand claims it is the segment’s slimmest 3D curved display. The side frame is just 0.757cm, and the back is glass. The back has a two-tone design, with one half having a matte finish, whereas the other has a glossy finish with a unique pattern that changes color when light falls on it from different angles. The phone has two large circles on the rear, each having a camera sensor.

The fingerprint scanner sits under the display, but what’s disappointing is the lack of stereo speakers. The phone has a single speaker on the bottom.

Coming to the specifications, Vivo V29e has a 6.78-inch Full-HD+ 120Hz 10-bit AMOLED display with 1300 nits peak brightness.

The chip is the Snapdragon 695, perhaps this phone’s biggest con. Snapdragon 695 is not a chip we expect in a mid-range phone priced above 25,000 in India. In fact, at this point, even at 20K, Snapdragon 695 does not sound like a big deal because there are phones with better chipsets available at this price.

The chip has 8GB RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage. The battery size is 5,000mAh, and the phone supports 44W fast charging.

As for the cameras, Vivo V29e has a dual camera setup on the rear. The primary camera has a 64MP sensor with OIS support. The secondary camera is for ultrawide photos & has an 8MP sensor. The selfie camera has a 50MP sensor with Eye AutoFocus, ensuring sharp images even in low-light scenarios.

Finally, the phone runs on Android 13 with Funtouch OS 13. The phone will get two Android OS updates.

Vivo V29e comes in two colors – Artistic Red & Artistic Blue. Here is the pricing for the Indian market –

  • 8GB + 128GB – ₹26,999
  • 8GB + 256GB – ₹28,999

The open sale starts on September 7.
