vivo V19 Launches in Kenya for KES 41,000


vivo entered the Kenyan market very many months ago. The company has been releasing a bunch of very good smartphones, and the latest entrant is the V19, which talked about a couple of weeks ago.

vivo Kenya then announced that customers who wanted to snag the device could pre-order, and the session lasted for three weeks.

Today, the V19 goes on sale officially. It is one of the few devices with a dual punch-hole selfie camera, meaning you have two selfie snappers for a variety of shots.

It also starts at KES 41000, making it a direct competitor to two or more devices that we can think of at the moment.

About that dual selfie camera, it is a 32 MP sensor that is complemented by an 8 MP wide-angle lens. This comes in handy when you want to include as many people as you want in a selfie, and there aren’t many phones around that can do that. There are multiple scenarios where this setup is key including vlogging.

Right on the back are other four cameras: 48 MP main, 8 MP wide-angle, a 2 MP for portrait shots, and another 2 MP for macro shots.

Powering the handheld is Snapdragon 712, 8 GB of RAM and a healthy 128 GB of internal storage.

Other perks include very fast charging at 33W, meaning you can juice the smartphone from dead to 54% in 30 minutes.

The rest of the specs are here:
