Just a day after posting the first teaser image, Vivo has confirmed the launch date of its next smartphone — Vivo V19 — in India. The company, just yesterday, had updated its Twitter account with an image that shows the upcoming handset from both front and back, however it did not include a launch date as the image simply says “coming soon.”
Now, the Vivo India Twitter account has confirmed the launch date via a tweet.

As per the tweet, Vivo will launch the device in India on March 26. Given how events are being cancelled/postponed, the launch is expected to be an online-only event.
The image that comes with today’s post doesn’t show anything but the dual front selfie camera in a punch hole camera design. Far more design details were revealed yesterday in the cover image of Vivo India’s Twitter account.
Yesterday’s image of the Vivo V19 shows that the handset sports an L-shaped rear camera setup in a rectangular encasement on the top left corner. There is a Vivo branding at the bottom on that side only. On the front, besides the dual punch hole camera setup, the Vivo V19 has an in-display fingerprint sensor at the bottom. The handset is showcased in two colour options that appear to be Black and gradient White-Blue.
The upcoming Vivo handset has been in news since the last couple of weeks as the alleged specs of the Vivo V19 have been reported in multiple reports.
As per online reports, the Vivo V19 comes powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 SoC, paired with an 8GB RAM paired with 128GB and 256GB internal storage options. It is said to sport a 6.44-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display and offers an aspect ratio of 20:9.
In the camera department, the Vivo V19 is rumoured to offer a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor. The front is likely to house a 32MP main sensor coupled with 8MP wide-angle-camera. Said to be backed by a 4500mAh battery, Vivo V19 is likely to offer 33W Vivo Flash Charge 2.0.
