After weeks of teasing, Vivo finally unveiled the new camera-centric phone V15 Pro in New Delhi on February 20.

The new Vivo V15 Pro is the successor of the V11 Pro (review) and comes with a big upgrade in terms of design, processor and most importantly the photography hardware.

I have been using the V15 Pro for a few days and have to tell, I am impressed with the camera, the exterior design and more.

 Here's my first impression of the Vivo V15 Pro:

It sports an eye-catching glossy shell on the back and my review unit looks great in the blue shade. On the front, it flaunts true 6.39-inch FullView full HD+ screen with no notch offering rich viewing experience. I had a good time watching the videos on the V15 Pro.

Under-the-hood, it comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage backed by Android Pie OS and 3,700mAh battery with fast charging capability. In a brief time, I have spent with V15 Pro, there was no sign of lag-ness during the launching of an app, switching multiple apps and even when taking photos. But, I need time to run through its pace to fully judge the phone's performance.

As far as photography is concerned, Vivo has done a commendable job. The Vivo V15 Pro comes with a triple camera module (48MP + 8MP +5MP) on the back. It took some amazing portrait mode pictures and also HDR images in the natural light conditions, but I will be able to give the final verdict when I see night shots and low-light environment.

Even the front pop-up 32MP camera opens up really fast and most importantly takes stunning selfies. It also works as Face scanner for protection, in addition, the in-screen finger sensor.

The new Vivo V15 Pro will be available for pre-order on authorised stores from Febraury 20 onward. It will go on sale on March 6 for Rs 28,999. As part of the launch offer, Vivo is offering 5-percent discount to HDFC card holders, also one-time screen replacement voucher and more.

Going by the features and capabilities, Vivo V15 Pro justifies the price it commands. Stay tuned for the full review later this month.
