"It gives me immense pleasure to announce the launch of our innovation, the V3 and V3Max for the Indian market. The V series designed with creativity and equipped with state of art technology will be a landmark for Vivo India," Alex Feng, CEO of Vivo India, said in a statement.

The V3 and V3Max offer an unbeatable proposition of cutting edge technology, impressive looks and Hi-Fi music quality in the industry," Feng added.
