“The Vivo iQOO with the Snapdragon 855 SoC will go against the likes of the upcoming OnePlus 7”
The Indian mobile market has seen a lot of product launches in the past few weeks from several brands. To recap, Samsung recently released its Galaxy A and M series phones. To counter Samsung and others, the Chinese tech giant Vivo is all set to launch a bunch of devices in the country. 91mobiles has exclusively learned that Vivo is all set to revamp its product roadmap in India with the launch of a few new Y, S, Z, and iQOO series smartphones.
According to a Vivo executive who wishes to remain anonymous, the phone maker is planning to introduce the new Y series phones called the Y3 and Y5 in India very soon. As per the source, the new Vivo Y series handsets will be available exclusively in offline stores. The Y3 will be priced between Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000, while the Y5 will be available for Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000. While the exact specs of these phones are not confirmed, they are expected to arrive with three cameras at the rear.
The Vivo S1 is expected to be launched in China soon. The phone will arrive as a variant of the Vivo V15, which is currently available to pre-order through the offline stores in India. The device will be released as an online-exclusive product in India soon after the unveiling in China later this week. The smartphone is expected to be offered in India in the Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000 price segment. The Vivo S1 will be an interesting offering from the company in this price segment with a triple rear camera setup and a notch-free display.
Talking about the Vivo iQOO, the gaming smartphone from the manufacturer will be released in India in late May or early June. The phone will be offered in the premium segment and will be priced between Rs 30,000 and Rs 60,000. It will be competing against the likes of the OnePlus, Samsung, and more in this price bracket.
