V15 Pro upgrade!

First, the main new feature of this device that you will surely notice first its dual-selfie camera. It uses a 32MP f/2.0 Samsung ISOCELL GD1 sensor for clarity paired with an 8MP f/2.2 105-degree ultra wide-angle secondary camera.

The cool thing about its selfie cams is it now has a Super Night Selfie to allow users take better selfies in the dark.

Second, it now has four cameras at the back. Coming from the V15 Pro, it now uses a 48MP f/1.78 Sony IMX582 main sensor instead of the lower-end Samsung 48MP camera.

It is paired with a 13MP f/2.5 2x telephoto primary sensor, an 8MP f/2.2 120-degree ultra-wide-angle camera with 2.5cm Super Macro mode, and a 2MP f/2.4 depth camera for bokeh effect.

There is an LED flash for low light snaps as well.

Third, the phone now has a larger 
6.44-inch AMOLED display from just 6.39-inch. The cool new thing about it is it has a taller 20:9 screen aspect ratio from 19:5:9.

Lastly, it now has 4,100mAh battery with USB-C 18W Dual Engine fast charging from 3,700mAh with micro USB Dual Engine fast charging.

The rest of the specs are similar to the V15 Pro.

I like the overall upgrades of the phone, except for the chipset part. It still loads with the same  2.0GHz 64-bit Snapdragon 675 AIE octa-core processor.

While the 11nm Snapdragon 675 is still quite capable, I would have liked it better if Vivo used the faster SD712 or SD730 instead.

In India, it is priced at just INR 29,990 or around PHP 22K. It is now available for pre-order and will go on sale on September 27.
