We recently saw Vivo releasing the Vivo V15 Pro in Nepal. It was priced right for its features and we liked what the phone had to offer. Today, we are hearing that Vivo is thinking of bringing the Vivo V15 into Nepal too; possibly within two weeks.
Vivo V15 is, as the name suggests, a toned down version of the Vivo V15 Pro. One example of its inferiority would be the IPS LCD display instead of the AMOLED one found on the Pro. You’ll have to say goodbye to punchy colors and deep blacks. But the resolution is still FHD+, so the texts and images still look sharp. Don’t get me wrong, this display is not a bad panel. It’s only that V15 Pro has a better one.
Vivo V15 Pro & Vivo V15The next thing you might notice is that the V15 uses a MediaTek processor. The processor inside is the Mediatek Helio P70 processor. Its performance is similar to that of the Snapdragon 660 found on phones like the Xiaomi Mi A2.
So, I don’t have many qualms about the performance on this phone. Everyday tasks will run smoothly; you may even be able to game a little. Multitasking won’t be a problem with the 6GB RAM onboard. Vivo is also generous with its internal storage which is 128GB.

Vivo V15 Price in Nepal: Rs. TBD
Vivo V15, like the V15 Pro, has a triple camera setup. But it does not consist of the same sensors used in the V15 Pro. There’s no 48MP sensor anywhere. Instead, Vivo 15 has a 12MP+8MP+5MP camera setup. We will have to test it ourselves to give you a verdict on how this setup performs. Don’t assume outright that it won’t be as good as the V15 Pro.

However, for all the subtractions, Vivo V15 retains the motorized 32MP pop-up selfie camera. This gives the phone that edge to edge screen look that we all like. But, the fingerprint sensor is not under the screen; it’s at the back. That’s a bummer but they had to cut corners somewhere to make the phone less pricey.
Talking about the price, we don’t know yet how much Vivo will charge the Nepali customers for this phone. But, they may bring this phone below 38k. This would be a unique phone in that price range and its originality may attract buyers away from competitors.
