Vivo follows Huawei, offering 2 years of warranty on V3 & V3 Max Smartphones in India

by Teja Chedalla 1

In April this year, Vivo has launched their latest flagship smartphones Vivo V3 and V3 Max in India. Along with OPPO, Vivo has seen a tremendous rise in market share both in China and India. The Vivo V3 and V3 Max came with powerful hardware and are one of the best selling devices in the market. Last month, the company also announced a price cut of Rs. 3,000 on Vivo V3 and Rs. 4,000 on Vivo V3 Max.

Both the devices come with metal body and also supports VoLTE which makes the devices eligible for Jio 4G Welcome Offer. While all the Vivo devices come with 12 months of manufacturer warranty, now the company is offering one year additional manufacturer warranty for both the Vivo V3 and V3 Max. As of now, there is no information whether it will be applicable only for new users or all the users who already bought the device.

The official announcement on the same will be announced soon. Recently Huawei also announced two years manufacturer warranty for the newly launched Huawei P9 smartphone in India. However, Reliance’s smartphone brand LYF is offering two years warranty with all their smartphones. Now the Vivo V3 and V3 Max makes a good deal with the price cut, Jio welcome offer, and now the two years warranty.

Talking about the specifications, the Vivo V3 and V3 Max comes with a 13MP rear camera with PDAF and an 8MP selfie camera. There is also a fingerprint sensor placed on the rear of the device. The Vivo V3 comes with 5-inch HD display and is powered by Snapdragon 616 octa-core processor and 3GB of RAM. On the other hand, the V3 Max comes with 5.5-inch Full HD Display and includes Snapdragon 652 octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM.
