    But in a nutshell, the Vivo V19 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon octa-core 712 processor, while equipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB of internal memory.  The battery is a  4500mAh capacity which comes with 33W Vivo FlashCharge 2.0 technology that enables up to  54% charge in just half an hour.  

    Speaking to the Media during the announcement, Vivo Kenya CEO Arthur Xian Said, “Having the device available in the market will now have Kenyans access our products at their convenience, which is in line with our vision of providing every Kenyan with affordable yet sophisticated devices with a great experience.”
