The display will offer 480ppi pixel density. Further, the device is running on Android 11 OS on top of Vivo’s Fun Touch OS which is a good sign.

While there is no detail on the exact model name of the device yet, going by the model number, we can expect the device to come under the popular V-series mid-range phones. The current-gen Vivo V series mid-range consists of three devices in India - the Vivo V20, Vivo V20 SE, and Vivo V20 Pro. The device spotted on the Google Play listings could be the successor to the Vivo V20 series.

During the launch of MediaTek Dimensity 1200 and Dimensity 1100 SoC, MediaTek said phones with the new SoCs will launch at the end of Q1, 2021 and beginning of Q2, 2021. So, we can expect the launch towards the end of March. This is all we know about the Vivo device for now. Once the leaks and rumours start pouring, we will get more details on the same.
