Remember the NEX? the phone with a pop-up front camera and in-display fingerprint scanner? Well, Vivo isn’t stopping there, as they’ve just announced a new version of the phone with not one but two displays. Coupled with a triple camera setup, the NEX Dual Display edition may be a glimpse of what’s yet to come for smartphones. The NEX’s 6.39-inch Super AMOLED FullView display yields a screen-to-body ratio of 91.63%, a notable upgrade over the previous version. Thanks to the notch-less display, users can enjoy a more immersive experience – whether its for viewing photos, playing games, watching videos, and more. Now, there’s a 5.49-inch Super AMOLED display at the back, which can be used in a number of creative ways. Mirror Mode, allows users to see themselves in the rear display when being photographed or filmed – The Lunar Ring, located on the rear display also glows for your…

Last September, Vivo launched its newest front runner in the country, the V11. Sporting a new look, a powerful high mid-range processor, AI powered optics, and an in-display fingerprint scanner, this device aims to offer the company’s latest innovations, and a premium experience minus the hefty price tag. Unboxing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2umh6m7HZVs&t=135s Specifications Design and Build Quality While still primarily made of plastic, the Vivo V11 does feel like a premium device in the hand, thanks to its slim for factor, and curved back. The company also deviated from the usual color options, and introduced color fusion. Our review unit was of the Starry Night variant, which utilizes a combination of black and a glittery blue surface, making it look like you’re watching stars in the night sky. Mind you, the back panel has a glossy finish which makes it a smudge magnet. It can also get slippery, so I suggest you use…

Vivo surprised everyone at the launch of the V11, when they also introduced the V11i, another powerful mid-range phone at a more affordable price point. This time, they’re bringing in another surprise, the V11i in Fairy Pink! Yes, you’ve read that right. In addition the the black and blue hues of Starry Night, and the blue and purple hues of Nebula, the Vivo V11i now has a new limited edition Fairy Pink variant, which symbolizes charm, tenderness, and femininity. To give you a recap, the V11i utilizes the same Halo Notch as the V11, leading to a screen-to-body ratio of 90.4%. It’s equipped with a MediaTek Helio P60 processor along with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For imaging, the device houses a 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera system, complimented by a 25MP front shooter. Its cameras are also bolstered with AI features – AI Face Beauty, AI Selfie…

These days, selfies are more than just photos, they are also an expression of one’s emotions and personality. Almost no event goes by without you taking one as a keepsake. With selfies playing an important role in your life, having a reliable smartphone with a good front camera has become more significant than before. Vivo’s newest mid-range contender, the V11, delivers on this aspect. Its 25MP front camera features AI Selfie Lighting, which lets you apply various lighting effects to give your photos a different vibe. Aside from Natural Light, Studio Light,  Stereo Light, and Monochrome Background, there’s also Loop Light and Rainbow Light. As with previous iterations, the V11 also comes with AI Face Beauty and AR Stickers, making your selfies look more natural, and adding a bit more fun for those wacky shots that really stand out. Vivo is the first smartphone brand to introduce a 20MP dual front…

In its aim of bringing its products to more customers, Vivo has recently opened its newest concept store in SM North EDSA, Its 69th in the country. Present during the event were Vivo endorser Elisse Joson, who also serenaded the crowd with her version of “Sit Still, Look Pretty,” Vivo Philippines Vice President for Sales Ms. Hazel Bascon, and representatives from SM and Vivo partner dealers. Fans who attended the event were treated to exclusive giveaways and freebies. The first 100 customers received 16GB SD cards, headphones, bluetooth speakers, selfie sticks, powerbanks, ring holders, and Smart LTE SIM Cards. Each set of freebies corresponded to a purchase of a Vivo smartphone (Y71 (2GB), Y81, V11, V11i, Y85 and V9).

These days, it’s a contest of who’s smartphone can fit more screen into a slimmer and smaller body. As such, companies like Vivo have invested a lot of its resources in long-term research and development into improving the displays for its smartphones. In fact, its notch and screen advancements are progressive, as shown by the V9 and X21’s 19:9 FullView Display. The notch has evolved every three months on average, reducing its footprint and giving users more room for content. “Daring to pursue true perfection, while continuously creating the surprising.” Vivo is the first global brand that was able to completely remove the notch – The NEX’s 6.59-inch Ultra FullView Display with a 19.3:9 aspect ratio delivers an astonishing 91.24% screen-to-body ratio, which was made possible by placing the sensors right under the display, and creating a pop-up mechanism for the front camera. This year, the recently-launched V11 sports…

These days, one thing that matters a lot to consumers is screen size. In this age where mobile gaming and entertainment are rapidly evolving, the more room for content you have, the more immersive the experience gets. Vivo is a company that knows and has made efforts to keep up with this trend. The new Vivo V11’s Halo FullView Display, is a concrete example of such. Here are seven reasons as to why it matters. Visual Amusement – With a massive 6.41-inch Super AMOLED Halo FullView Display, you have more space for icons and widgets, and almost any type of content be it a game, a movie, or a photo are showcased with stunning clarity. Taking Photos – A bigger screen gives more room for more options and functions, plus a more comfortable experience of browsing photos you’ve taken. Watching films – A 3D curved body design that blends the…

IDC report is finally out, and while it is important to note of the top mobile brands in terms of smartphone shipments, it is equally vital to look at what helped to make this happen. If you take a look at the chart that IDC posted last October 1, ultra low-end and low-end devices dominate the price band spectrum of the industry. A year later, you would notice a significant shift in the spectrum where ultra low-end decreased, while both low-end and mid-range increased. Now, why are more Filipinos able to buy mid-range smartphones this year than last year? To understand this, we had to ask an investments and economics expert, Migs Lopez of Critical Index. Migs shared with us that the changes we are seeing this year in the smartphone consumer landscape have something to do with Filipinos’ purchasing power, TRAIN law, and inflation. TRAIN Law Effect The Filipino…

Vivo has announced its plans to spearhead the development of pre-commercial 5G devices by introducing ground-breaking 5G software and hardware based on the Vivo NEX series. The company has already completed the initial development of 5G smartphone software and hardware. Running on the X50 modem from Qualcomm, Vivo has already finished initial architecture planning, 3D placement stacking, RF /antenna designs and optimized battery space within NEX to deliver 5G capabilities. In fact, the 5G version of the NEX has already passed the first phase of protocol and signaling tests with Keysight UXM 5G Signaling. The next step would be IODT tests with 5G infrastructure and networking equipment. The company is pushing to launch its first batch of commercial 5G smartphones by 2019. The 5G version of the NEX supports the non-standalone architecture (NSA) model, which includes dual connection for both LTE and New Radio (NR) based on 3GPP Release 15 Standards.…

Just a couple of days after its launch, Vivo’s newest mid-range handset is now available for pre-order until September 20, 2018 in participating Vivo concept stores, kiosks, authorized retail partners, and in online channels – Lazada, Shopee, Argomall, and Akulaku. Customers who pre-order from physical stores will  receive a FREE gift set (Bluetooth Speaker, Bluetooth Headset, Selfie Stick) and additional 6 months warranty, while those who will pre-order online will also receive a 10,000mAh powerbank as a bonus freebie. The Vivo V11 is set to be the company’s most well-rounded device to date, with an exquisite and elegant design that emits a premium look, and a 6.41-inch Halo FullView display that utilizes a smaller notch to give you more room for content. Under the hood is a Snapdragon 660 AIE processor, along with 6GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage expandable with a microSD card. It’s packed with dual rear…

Vivo’s conquest for the mid-range segment continues with the launch of the V11. It combines the formula of a new design, a very capable processor, AI-powered optics, and a ton of other features to create, what seems to be the company’s most well-rounded device to-date. I was able to spend some time with a review unit, and here are my first thoughts. Unboxing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2umh6m7HZVs Specifications Beautiful. No, Seriously. For the V11, Vivo has decided to go for some changes in the design – starting with the notch, which is now much smaller when compared to the V9. Of course, that also improves the phone’s screen-to-body ratio, and though just slightly, gives you more screen. Next, they went outside of the conventional colors, and used a gradient for the back panel. Using what they call color fusion, it’s basically a mix of a sleek black and glossy finish, and a glittery…

Apart from the V11, Vivo also had a surprise for its fans, as the brand also announced the launch of the Vivo V11i! The Vivo V11i has a slightly smaller 6.3-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED screen that also uses the Halo Notch, and is powered by the MediaTek Helio P60 chip, along with 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage expandable with a microSD card. The device boasts of  a 16MP + 5MP dual rear camera system, and a 25MP front snapper with AI features. It runs on Funtouch OS 4.5 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo, and packs a slightly smaller 3,315mAh battery with fast charging capabilities. The Vivo V11i is priced at PhP15,999. Specifications

It’s finally here. Vivo’s newest mid-ranger that is. The new Vivo V11 is in many ways, inspired X21’s capabilities, such as a more powerful processor, AI-assisted optics, packed into a premium housing that exhibits elegance and style. The V11’s rear panel utilizes color fusion, which combines a glittery section with a sleek glossy finish to create a harmonious look that’s perhaps one of the most eye-candy we’ve seen from the brand. The 6.41-inch Halo FullView display also utilizes a smaller notch, improving the phone’s screen-to-body ratio. Under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with microSD card support. It runs on Vivo’s Funtouch OS 4.5 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo and packs a 3,400mAh battery capable of dual engine fast charging. Unlike many of Vivo’s previous devices, the V11 does not have a dedicated Hi-Fi chip for improving the…

After revealing the V11 as its newest smartphone to be launched in the Philippines, Vivo has now confirmed a few details about its upcoming device. For starters, the Vivo V11 will have 6GB of RAM, which should be enough even for heavy multi-tasking. It will also have 64GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card up to 256GB. Like the X21, the V11 will also feature in-display fingerprint scanning, along with AI-powered optics, which means there’s likely scene detection and AI-assisted beautification. The Vivo V11 is set to launch on September 11, 2018. As always, we’ll be there to cover the event, and give you access to the latest updates regarding the brand’s newest flagship in the country.

For its next smartphone, Vivo is set on introducing a new screen design that’s sleek, cutting-edge, and functional. A display that’s a step above its competition. The brand has been continuing to innovate with the bezel-less design in its recent smartphones. The V9 is a perfect example, with its 90% screen to body ratio, along with the X21, which took things a step further with its in-display fingerprint scanner, and the NEX, with its 8MP elevating front camera. Vivo has been teasing its next smartphone, which will probably have the same in-display fingerprint scanner, and perhaps, a new screen that’s set to give you more room for content. Just what exactly do they have in store for us consumers? we’ll find out soon enough.

It looks like Vivo is gearing up for the launch of its next mid-range device. Just recently, the company has posted a teaser on its Facebook page, showing the phrases “something out of this world is brewing”, “Go beyond”, and “Arriving soon”. It also shows a spiral galaxy that appears as a fingerprint. A hint that this new device will also have an in-display fingerprint scanner. What’s more interesting is that a few days ago, a teaser was also posted online about the upcoming V11 Pro, which is set to be launched on September 6. So this might be a hint of its local launch (maybe just the V11 though). Or, if we think  in a more out of the box manner, could it even be the NEX or the newly announced X23? The V11 Pro is rumored to come with the Snapdragon 660 processor, along with 6GB of RAM,…
