After launching the V15 Pro last month, Vivo has launched a toned down variant of the device today. The V15 comes with identical specs in a few aspects compared to the Pro variant. Let’s find out what this device offers out of the box:
On the display front, the Vivo V15 sports a slightly larger screen measuring 6.53-inches. It bears full HD+ resolution but lacks the Super AMOLED panel as seen on the Pro model. The display is shielded by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 against accidental damage. Design-wise, the V15 looks similar to the Pro variant except that it features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of an in-display scanner. The smartphone ships in three colour variants i.e. Frozen Black, Royal Blue, and Glamour Red.
In the optics department, the Vivo V15 sports a triple camera setup comprising of a 12MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture. It is accompanied by an 8MP wide angle lens and a 5MP depth sensor. Upfront, the device is fitted with a 32MP pop-up snapper for clicking selfies. The camera software is backed by various AI features and modes for enhancing the images.
On the hardware front, the Vivo V15 is driven by a MediaTek P70 chipset. It is paired with 6GB RAM and offers 64GB internal memory. The storage is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. The Vivo V15 draws its power from a 4,000mAh battery unit, which is slightly larger than the Pro model. It supports Vivo’s proprietary Dual-Engine fast charging.
On the software front, the Vivo V15 Pro runs the latest Android 9 Pie with the brand’s custom Funtouch 9 skinned on the top. Connectivity-wise, the V15 offers dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, micro-USB and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
