The vivo V15 series is announced very soon and its official global launch will be taking place in India next week. vivo Malaysia invited fellow media to have a quick preview of the vivo V15 Pro and we manage to get a review unit to share it with you guys.
Unfortunately, there’s an embargo date that we have to honour, we are unable to disclosed the full specifications of the device but we are allowed to share the design and our first impressions of it.
Here’s a quick hands-on video that uploaded onto our YouTube channel where you can watch it now;
A quick glance you will notice the V15 Pro share the same design language with the vivo NEX. It has an Ultra FullView stretches edge-to-edge AMOLED display without a notch as it features a pop-up selfie camera. This gave an immersive viewing experience although it has a slightly noticeable chin bezel. An in-display fingerprint scanner is present on the V15 Pro.
The V15 Pro that we received is the Topaz Blue that comes with a dark-purple to blue gradient and some wavy fine lines that create a unique reflective effect.
On the rear are triple camera setup that powered by A.I. features with a slight bump aligned with the pop-up selfie camera. The selfie camera uses a motorized pop-up mechanism just like the vivo NEX. The selfie camera has bumped up to 32-megapixels sensor which we believe vivo uses 8-megapixels pixel binning technic to achieve effective 32-megapixels sensor.
At the bottom is dual nano-SIM tray, microphone, microUSB port instead of USB Type-C and single down firing speaker.
It also gets a dedicated microSD card tray for storage expansion.
vivo Malaysia has yet to reveal the pricing for both vivo V15 and V15 Pro as the local launch should be taking place a week after the global announcement in India on 20th February 2019.
The V15 and V15 Pro would likely be priced under RM 2,000 and should be very close to the vivo V11 and V11i price which are RM 1,699 and RM 1,299 respectively.
Our unboxing video and comprehensive review will be online on the 27th of February 2018. We will be sharing more photos taken with the vivo V15 Pro in coming days on Instagram platform, so do follow us on Instagram @theidealmobile
