Owing to the lockdown imposed by the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in India, several smartphone OEMs had previously postponed new smartphone launches in the country. But with the recent lockdown relaxation, manufacturers have once again started launching new devices in the market. In the past few weeks, we’ve seen several new devices hit the market, including the OnePlus 8 series, Xiaomi Mi 10, and the Realme Narzo series. Adding on to the list, Chinese OEM Vivo has now launched the Snapdragon 712-powered Vivo V19 in India.
