Strikingly Similar to the Vivo Y200e 5G:

Leaked images show a design that's quite different from the V30 series. However, it bears a surprising resemblance to the recently launched Vivo Y200e 5G. The blue color option, in particular, looks nearly identical, with a possible light purple shade also rumored.
