Vivo is gearing up for a launch event later this week, where it is expected to take the wraps off its APEX 2019 smartphone. In the meantime though, the company has rather quietly unveiled a new smartphone. Called Vivo Y89, the smartphone is listed on the company’s China website, and on sale via Aliexpress.
Vivo Y89 price
The new Vivo smartphone is listed on Aliexpress with a price tag of around $266 (approximately Rs 19,000). Buyers will be able to choose between color options like black, and blue/purple gradient. The e-commerce website mentions that it already has stocks, and the device will ship within two days. There’s currently no word on whether Vivo plans on launching the device in other markets like India.
