Vivo V15 and V15 Pro have no-notch full screens, triple rear cameras, and pop-up selfie cam

The Vivo V15 series has everything 2019 upper midrange smartphones should have – notchless full-screen displays, triple rear cameras (for low light, wide angle, bokeh), at least 6GB RAM, massive 128GB expandable storage, and a stylish design. Both the V15 and V15 Pro have a 32MP pop-up selfie cam (no notch or cut-out), which makes their displays everything you see when you hold them.

The V15 Pro (PH23,999) is the better spec’d model, with an in-display fingerprint sensor (versus rear sensor in the V15), an AMOLED display (versus IPS), more RAM (8GB versus 6GB), a faster processor (Snapdragon 675 AIE versus Helio P70), and a higher resolution main camera (48MP versus 12MP). That said, the V15 (PH17,999) has a bigger screen, a bigger battery, and is more affordable.
