In September this year, Vivo launched V7 Plus smartphone in the Indian market, which was powered by Snapdragon 450 processor. The phone was touted as the world’s first device to be powered by SD 450 SoC. Now, the company is all set to launch another smartphone powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 450 processor.
Vivo is holding a press event on November 20 where the company will launch Vivo V7 — the younger sibling of the V7+ with marginally smaller display. The media invite had a smartphone with a single rear camera and a fingerprint scanner. Before the official launch in India, Vivo will launch the smartphone in Indonesia on November 16.
The Vivo V7 will come with a FullView display. The smartphone is expected to feature a 5.7-inch HD+ display as opposed to the 6-inch display on the V7 Plus. Under the hood, it will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, along with 4GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Vivo has been known for focusing on the camera department and the V7 will not be an exception. The smartphone retains the same 24MP selfie camera which was the highlight of the V7+. The device will also come with a 16MP front-facing camera.
It will run on Android Nougat operating system based FunTouch OS 3.2 and will be powered by a 3,000mAh battery. The dual SIM smartphone will also support 4G VoLTE connectivity along with the usual set of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.
The Vivo V7+ is priced at Rs. 21,990 in India. With the upcoming V7 being a watered down version, we expect the phone’s pricing to be around Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 18,000. It is expected to be available in two colours — Black and Gold. However, we’ll have to wait for the official launch for the confirmation about pricing and availability.
