In December 2019, a report by 91mobiles had revealed that Vivo India will be launching the V19 and V19 Pro smartphones in India by March end. The company is expected to promote the Vivo V19 series during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 cricket tournament in India that will begin from March 23rd. While Vivo is yet to confirm the existence of the Vivo V19 series, a fresh report by the same publication claims that pre-orders of the V19 and V19 Pro will begin in India from end-February.
The report claims that the Vivo V19 and V19 Pro could be priced between Rs. 20,000 and Rs. 30,000. The V19 duo is expected to be available for purchase through online and offline channels in the country. It has further stated that the Vivo V19 Pro could be arriving in India first while the standard V19 may release at a later date.
The probable reason why Vivo V19 smartphone could be arriving later is that it’s been only two months since the launch of the Vivo V17. Hence, the V19 could be heading to India in March. At present, there is no information available on the specifications of the Vivo V19 and V19 Pro smartphones.
The Vivo V19 Pro will be arriving as a successor for the Vivo V17 Pro phone that was unveiled in October 2019. The V17 Pro is still listed on Vivo India website with a reduced price tag of Rs. 27,999. It was introduced with a pricing of Rs. 29,990. There is a possibility that the Vivo V19 Pro may arrive in India with similar pricing.
