Vivo was the first smartphone maker to banish the awful notch trend that surfaced last year by creating the Vivo NEX with a pop-up selfie camera. It followed that recently with Vivo NEX Dual Display edition, swapping out the pop-up camera for a secondary rear display designed take selfies with the higher quality rear cameras. Now its back with a more affordable model launching in India with the same all-screen pop-up selfie approach of the original Vivo NEX.

The new Vivo V15 Pro brings many of the high-end features of the NEX to a wider audience including a fifth-gen in-display fingerprint sensor as well as a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a FHD+ resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. Helping to bring the price down, it is fitted with a Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor. That said, it still sports 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB expandable on board storage. It also packs a hefty 3,700 mAh battery and is fitted with a 32MP front-facing camera as well as triple rear camera arrangement featuring a 48 MP main camera that is joined by an 8 MP sensor and 5 MP sensor.

The dual-SIM phone also picks up Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi, and fast-charging. Curiously, another cost-cutting measure sees the inclusion of a USB 2.0 micro-USB port instead of the more typical USB-C port we see on new devices. It is available for pre-order now for the equivalent of US$400 and comes in Topaz Blue and Ruby Red. Another tick in the plus column is that it ships with Android 9 Pie out of the box, albeit with Vivo’s custom Funtouch OS 9 skin.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
