Vivo is gearing up to launch its brand new device, Vivo V15 Pro in India. The leaked image was shared by 91mobiles.com on Twitter a few days ago.

So let’s take a look at the specifications of Vivo V15 Pro in detail.

Pricing and Availability
According to an article by 91Mobiles.com, pre-bookings for the device will start on February 15th. The official date of release being February 20th. There’s no official word on pricing yet. But when it comes to Vivo, don’t expect it to be around the ₹20K mark. As for the availability, the device will be available for purchase on Vivo India Website and via offline sellers. As that’s where most of its sales are generated from.
Vivo and Oppo, both the Chinese companies have their own user base in the Indian market. Generally, these devices are marketed towards users looking for a device with the latest features and good cameras. They don’t really care as much about the internals as we nerds do. Pricing has always been the issue with these brands as they charge exorbitant prices for mediocre specs. If the upcoming Vivo V15 Pro is anywhere near the 20K mark, then it can give tough competition to big players like Xiaomi & Nokia.
