Vivo could be planning to launch a new entry-level smartphone in Taiwan. The reason behind it is that an unidentified Vivo 1814 has been approved by Taiwan’s National Communications Commission (NCC) authority. The NCC certification of the Vivo 1814 hasn’t revealed any details on the specs of the phone. However, the entire design of the phone has been revealed since its images have been found in NCC documents.
The Vivo 1814 features a plastic rear. Apart from the red model seen in the NCC documents, the smartphone could be also available in some other colors. The top-left corner of the back panel of the Vivo 1814 features a vertically arranged dual camera setup. A fingerprint reader is also slotted on the rear shell.
The SIM card tray is placed on the right side of the Vivo 1814 whereas the buttons for volume and power are on the right. The top edge of the smartphone is barren while a speaker grille, a microUSB 2.0 port and 3.5mm headphone slot. The frontside of the Vivo 1814 features a waterdrop notch.
The Vivo 1814 could be confused with Vivo V1814A that was launched as Vivo X21s in China and Vivo V1814T that was announced as Vivo V11 Pro in India. Both the phones feature in-screen fingerprint scanner. However, the images of the Vivo 1814 show that it is an entry-level phone. Moreover, a shot of the 5V/1A charger suggests that it will be a low budget device. Hence, the newly spotted Vivo 1814 seems to be a different device than Vivo V1814A and Vivo V1814T.

Apart from NCC, the Vivo 1814 has been also approved by Malaysia’s SIRIM and Europe’s Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) and Indonesia’s TKDN bodies which indicates that it will be released in multiple markets. The specifications of the Vivo 1814 are still under the wraps. Probably, the handset may go official as a Y-series smartphone before the end of the year.
