Vivo confirmed that the Vivo V29 series will launch in India on October 4. The lineup is expected to come with a base Vivo V29 and V29 Pro models.

In the camera department, the phone is confirmed to have a 50-megapixel primary sensor, an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide angle lens, a 2-megapixel camera alongside a Smart Aura light at the back and a 50-megapixel sensor in the front for selfies and video calls.
The base handset will have an in-display fingerprint sensor for security and an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance. A 4,600mAh battery with 80W fast charging capabilities will be included with the phone.
The Vivo V29 models are teased in three colour options – Himalayan Blue, Majestic Red, and Space Black, with the red variant featuring a colour-changing back panel.
