The Vivo V19 has been finally made official. And it’s poised to be one of its most popular midrange releases for the year, just like its predecessors.
Nope, this is not the rebranded V17 that we saw last month. This Vivo V19 is an entirely new device, and we might actually see it arriving in more countries, including here in the Philippines.
One of the key highlights of this midrange handset, of course, is its cameras. On the front, we have a large punch-hole on the top right of the screen fro the 32-megapixel selfie camera.
We also have an accompanying 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens for group shots — more useful than having a depth sensor.
Speaking of the screen, what we have here is a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED panel with a FHD+ resolution. The fingerprint scanner was built underneath for a cleaner look.
We have the usual suspects on the back. There’s your 48-megapixel main camera, another 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and two 2-megapixel sensors for macro and depth-sensing.
Under the hood, the Vivo V19 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 712. It’s bundled with a generous 8GB of RAM, which we’re starting to see in more midrange devices today. You can then pick between 128GB or 256GB of expandable storage.
Vivo V19 also comes with a 4,500mAh battery, which is bigger than the 4,000mAh capacity that most competing devices come with. A 33W fast charger is also included so you can top it up in under two hours.
