At the beginning of this week, Vivo had introduced the Vivo Y19 smartphone in Thailand. A fresh report on 91mobiles quoting an unnamed Vivo representative states that the Vivo Y19 mid-range phone will be coming soon to India. Its arrival may result in the discontinuation of the Vivo Y17 smartphone. The report further states that the Vivo Y19 may hit the Indian markets with a pricing of around Rs 20,000. The Vivo Y17 is currently selling for Rs 13,990 in the country.
