Vivo Y15 to challenge Redmi Note 7 Pro with triple cameras, India launch soon

The Chinese giant Vivo will soon be launching a new mid-range smartphone in India. Dubbed as Vivo Y15, the phone will offer triple rear cameras, just like the recently launched Vivo Y17.

According to the report by 91Mobiles, the Vivo Y15 will be priced between Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 and will be launching very soon in the country. At this price, the phone will be competing with smartphones like Redmi Note 7 Pro and Realme 3 Pro. However, the exact launch date is yet to be revealed. The report didn’t reveal specifications either, except for the fact that the device will bear three cameras at the back.

Given that Y15 will be a younger sibling to the Y17, we can expect it to be a toned-down version of the same. Previously, a report claimed that Vivo India would soon release a smartphone named as Vivo Y3. However, now it seems that the rumoured handset is Y15 and not Y3.
