Both the devices have been our star performers and have been doing very well in the Indian market. V15 Pro defines Vivo's' ‘innovation lead’ brand proposition in the sub-30k segment. V15Pro also hit the milestone of the fastest selling smartphone in Vivo's history, receiving an overwhelming response from consumers in March this year. Owing to this great success, we recently rolled out new variants for V15 and V15Pro offering our customers more choice in this series. An updated 8GB RAM memory variant for V15Pro and Aqua Blue color variant for V15 was introduced. Not only that, we are working on a daily basis to make the existing product portfolio even more efficient by rolling out timely updates for enhanced consumer experience.

We wish to uphold the faith that our consumers have placed in us and aim to serve them better with our ever-growing and sustained product portfolio.”
