Vivo India has teased a new product that is expected to launch at the Mobile World Congress on February 20. The company on Tuesday sent ‘Block Your Calendar‘ invites of its February 20 MWC event. Since multiple reports have claimed that the Chinese brand will be debuting the Vivo 15 series by the end of next month, we expect the rumoured V15 and V15 Pro handsets on the said date.
The launch teaser did not reveal the name or specs about the upcoming handset. However, it hinted that the upcoming smartphone will be equipped with a pop-up selfie camera, similar to last year’s Vivo Apex and the rebranded Vivo NEX. The tagline “There’s a new pop-star in Town’ confirms that. There are already rumours that the Vivo V15 and Vivo V15 Pro will feature pop-up selfie shooters.
The Vivo V15 and the Vivo V15 Pro are expected to sport notch-less AMOLED display with in-screen fingerprint sensor. The Vivo V15 Pro is speculated to feature a triple camera setup while the primary sensor of both the phones is expected to be a 32MP sensor. The smartphones will also retain the old 3.5 mm headphone jack.
In comparison, the Vivo V11 Pro features a 6.41 inch FHD+ Halo FullView display with in-display fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, it is powered by a SD 660 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage. It has a 12MP + 5MP rear camera configuration and comes with AI Backlight HDR, AI Portrait framing, AI Scene recognition and AI low light. On the front it has a 25MP front camera with Face Access with Infrared. It is backed by a 3,400 mAh battery with Vivo dual engine fast charging. The Vivo V15 series may also feature similar specifications with improvement in display and battery capacity.
In India, the Vivo V15 is expected to be priced around Rs 25,000 ($ 351 approx) while the higher Vivo V15 may be priced around Rs 30,000 ($421 approx) considering its predecessor was announced at Rs 25,999 and was devoid of the Pop-up selfie camera.
