“We usually launch V series flagship products twice a year, one in the first half and one in the second half. In 2018, V9 was launched in the first half of the year, while the V11 Pro was brought to India in the second half. This time also, we will be launching something in the first half of 2019 and it will be the successor of the V11 Pro,” Marya told the publication. There is no confirmed name for the Vivo V11 Pro successor, but it is only the assumption that Vivo will continue with the series numbering and may call it V12 Pro.

This new variant has joined the other two color options of the Vivo V11 Pro, called Dazzling Gold and Starry Night.
