Vivo V19 global variant has been officially unveiled, weeks after the company postponed its official launch. Vivo V19 was originally supposed to debut in India on March 26, but the launch was delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus situation. From the information available on the official website, Vivo V19 will be offered in Gleam Black and Sleek Silver colour options, as well as two storage options. The new variant is different from the V19 model released in Indonesia earlier.
As mentioned earlier, Vivo has not specified the price of the new Vivo V19 smartphone. As per the information available on the website, Vivo V19 will come with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/ 256GB storage options. "Details may vary by region. Please visit the local official website for more information," the company added.
Vivo India, on the other hand, lists the phone as an upcoming handset on their portal. Through its Twitter account, Vivo India said that the company will reveal more information about the smartphone once the coronavirus situation in the country improves.
Last month, Vivo launched V19 in Indonesia with a different set of specifications.
