Vivo V19 was set to launch in India on 26th March. But the ongoing lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic saw the company postpone the event. In an unexpected turn of events, Vivo V19 has quietly made its global debut today and is listed on the official website. It features a dual selfie-camera punch-hole, Snapdragon 712 SoC, and 33W super-fast charging among other things.

Vivo V19: Specs and Features

Starting off with the design, Vivo V19 features a 3D curved glass back with a subtle gradient finish. The back panel looks elegant and clean with the aligned rectangular camera bump and Vivo brand placement. The fingerprint sensor here sits under the display.

The display is a 6.44-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED panel with a dual selfie-camera punch-hole at the top-right edge. It boasts 2400×1080p resolution, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut support, and Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.

In line with the rumors, it’s the Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 chipset that runs the show under the hood here. The chipset is coupled with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage (can expandable via the dedicated microSD card slot). It runs Android 10-based FunTouchOS 10 out-of-the-box.

The Vivo V19 includes a quad-camera setup on the rear. It’s a primary 48MP (f/1.79) sensor, along with an 8MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP macro lens, and 2MP depth sensor. The camera supports a myriad of camera features like Super night mode, Ultra stable video, portrait video, and more.

As for the dual-camera punch-hole on the front, Vivo has packed a 32MP primary lens and an 8MP ultra-wide lens to make it easier to capture group selfies.

Finally, Vivo V19 comes equipped with a 4,500mAh battery and 33W Flash Charge 2.0 support. This technology is capable of juicing up about 50% of the phone’s battery in 30 minutes. You will find connectivity options such as WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB Type-C in tow as well.

Price and Availability

There is currently no word on the pricing and availability details for the Vivo V19 but the company should launch this smartphone in India after the ongoing lockdown. The Vivo V19 will be available in two attractive colors, namely Sleek Silver and Gleam Black.

Update 1 (12/05/2020 12:12 pm)

After multiple delays due to the nationwide lockdown, Vivo V19 has finally made its India debut today. The specs sheet remains the same as the global variant, so let’s quickly take a look at the India prices of the Vivo V19:

  • 8GB + 128GB variant – Rs. 27,990
  • 8GB + 256GB variant – Rs. 31,990

If you want a modern-looking mid-ranger, Vivo V19 looks like a decent pick but by spending a few thousand bucks more, you can get the best flagship phones such as Realme X50 Pro, OnePlus 8, and the upcoming Poco F2 Pro.
