Vivo, the popular smartphone brand, seems to be gearing up for a surprise launch as the Vivo V40 SE 5G secures approval from the Global Certification Forum (GCF). While anticipation builds around the release of the V30 series globally, Vivo has stealthily been working on the V40 series, with the V40 SE 5G making significant strides in certifications.
GCF Certification:The Vivo V40 SE 5G, previously seen with the model number V2337 in Bluetooth SIG and dubbed V40 Lite 5G in GSMA IMEI database, has now gained GCF certification.

Google Play Supported Devices:Adding to the intrigue, the V40 SE 5G has made an appearance in the Google Play Supported Devices list. Unfortunately, specific details about the device's specifications remain elusive. However, industry speculation hints at a possible second-quarter launch.
Successor to Vivo V30 Lite:Expected to succeed the Snapdragon 695-powered Vivo V30 Lite, released in December 2023, the V40 SE/Lite is anticipated to bring a host of improvements. The V30 Lite featured a 6.67-inch AMOLED FHD+ 120Hz screen, FunTouch OS 13-based Android 13, a 50-megapixel front camera, and a robust 64-megapixel (main, with OIS) + 8-megapixel (ultra-wide) + 2-megapixel (macro) triple camera setup. A sizable 4,800mAh battery with 44W fast charging capability rounded off its specifications.
