Vivo‘s latest V series midrange smartphone is now more affordable than ever after a recent price cut. In a move that perhaps hints at the arrival of a successor, Vivo Philippines has adjusted the price of the Vivo V19 Neo effective today, September 11.

Released in the country mid-June, the Android smartphone drops to P15,999 (around $330 converted) from its local launch price of P17,999 ($370). The new price is already reflected at Vivo’s official store on Lazada and Shopee.

In our review of the Vivo V19 Neo, we described the phone as a “reliable, midrange device with a long-lasting battery and decent cameras.” The Vivo V19‘s cheaper, lower-specced sibling features a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED screen with full-HD resolution and a tiny punch hole for the 32-megapixel front camera. The quad setup on the back includes a 48-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide option, and a pair of 2-megapixel sensors for portrait and macro.

Powering the V19 Neo is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage, while a 4,500mAh battery that supports 18-watt fast charging keeps the lights on. As expected, it runs Funtouch OS 10 based on Android 10 out of the box.

The launch of the Vivo V20 series is set for September 24 in Malaysia. The phones will also become available in Indonesia — and likely in the Philippines. Judging from the price cut on the Vivo V19 Neo, it’s reasonable to think that the Vivo V20 — likely a global version of the Blackpink Lisa-endorsed Vivo S7 5G — and Vivo V20 SE could be on their way here soon.
