The Vivo V15 series will soon be discontinued in the Indian market, a report quoted retail sources on Friday. The two Vivo V series smartphones – Vivo V15 and Vivo V15 Pro – were launched earlier this year in February. Both these phones will reportedly be available until stock lasts.
According to 91mobiles, sources in retail have suggested that Vivo is currently clearing out stock of the Vivo V15 and Vivo 15 Pro. The company is said to discontinue the phone before the launch of Vivo S1. It is expected that the Vivo S1 will launch next month on August 15. Vivo responded with a statement as follows.
“The speculation suggesting the discontinuation of vivo V15 and V15Pro from the Indian market are not true and the production of both the devices will continue at our manufacturing facility. 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,” Vivo said in a statement.
“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,” the company added
