Vivo, the tech company owned by BBK Electronics that also owns Oppo, Realme, and OnePlus, has initially planned to release its Vivo V19 smartphone in Asia on March 26th of this year. However, because of the crisis created by the pandemic, the company has decided to delay the launch of the upcoming Vivo V19.
A previous rumor many fans relied on was that the launch across Asia would take place on April 3rd, but again, they were disappointed. However, the tech giant has now announced a release date for the Vivo V19 release as the lockdown restrictions are lifted: May 12th.
