After being delayed in India and Malaysia in face of COVID-19 crisis, Vivo has finally revealed the global Vivo V19. Take in mind, that this device is different from the V19 that was revealed in Indonesia last month. It’s an upper mid-range smartphone with some interesting features in the camera department. Worth noting that this is the first Vivo smartphone to go official with a pill-shaped punch hole for two selfie snappers.
Vivo V19 specifications
Under the hood, the Vivo V19 boasts the Snapdragon 712 chipset that comes paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB internal storage. Unlike the Vivo Y50 released earlier today, this phone does not sport microSD card expansion. These specifications are built around a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. As we said before, this display sports a dual punch-hole solution and a fingerprint scanner are placed underneath.
The camera department is composed of four rear cameras placed on a rectangular island. There we have a 48MP main camera, 8MP ultrawide angle lens, 2MP macro shooter and 2MP depth helper. There are some advanced features for photography such as Vivo’s Super Night Mode. Moving around to the front, we have a main 32MP selfie snapper and an 8MP ultrawide unit. As a result, you can expect some advanced and high-quality shots to be taken with the front-facing setup as well.
The V19 draws power from a 4,500mAh battery with 33W FlashCharge 2.0 fast-charging via a USB-C port. Vivo decided to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack that comes along with Bluetooth 5.0 support.
Interestingly enough, the company also is teasing some gaming capabilities on this handset. It boasts Vivo’s Multi Turbo 3.0 set of gaming improvements including optimized touch controls and a 78.05% increase in FPS stability.
There are several shortcuts to help you during long-gaming sessions via the “Ultra Game Mode”. Among them, we have a shortcut for fast-screen capture and screen recording. Based on this we can conclude that Vivo wants to offer the V19 has a jack of all trades. It offers decent performance, good camera capabilities and deep optimizations for games.
Price and availability.
Unfortunately, the company is yet to give details about the pricing and availability of this smartphone. As we said before, its original launch in India was postponed due to the lockdown in the country. Now we have to wait for more details about the phone’s arrival in the emerging market. The V19 will be offered in Sleek Silver and Gleam Black color options.
