- Vivo T1 5G India launch date is February 9th.
- The handset will be sold exclusively on Flipkart and should come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset.

We had exclusively revealed earlier that Vivo India will soon replace its Y-series of phones with the T series. Now, the company has officially confirmed the launch of the Vivo T1 5G, the first phone in the T series, in India. We have the exact launch date of the first phone via a Flipkart listing. The smartphone is set to launch in the country on February 9th and it should be an online-only event. The e-commerce listing has revealed some key features of the phone. Flipkart reveals it will be the fastest phone in the segment and there will be ‘Turbo Cooling’ for gaming. Flipkart says the listing will be updated with more details like the display, camera, turbo design, and more starting between February 3rd to 7th.
The listing also teases the chipset powering the phone. In a question about the processor, the options include Snapdragon 680, Snapdragon 695, Dimensity 700 and Helio G96. Since the former and latter are 4G SoCs, there are chances it could be powered either by the Snapdragon 695 or Dimensity 700. Considering the latter is an older 5G chipset, there are high chances the Vivo T1 could be powered by the Snapdragon 695. To recall, Chinese model came with the Snapdragon 778G SoC. The phone will come in two variants in India: 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB.
The Flipkart listing hints us on what to expect from the phone. We can see the rear panel with a unique gradient design and it seems to have triple camera sensors on the back but details should be revealed on February 7th. It will arrive with ‘Turbo Cooling’ for heat dissipation during gaming.
