Just a few days after Vivo launched their sub-brand, IQOO renders of their first phone have already surfaced online. The render shows a tall phone that folds in the middle. But unlike the expected fold-in design that we’ve seen in renders from some manufacturers, this looks to have a fold-out design. There isn’t any other information available about the phone but according to the reports, the price could be well above CNY 7,000 (about PHP 54,178.88). The renders show that the foldable phone has no ports or buttons. Whether this is because they are early renders or a possible buttonless, portless approach, like the Vivo Apex 2019, we’ll just have to wait and see. Source

Vivo has possibly launched its own sub-brand after a new account appeared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The account started off by sending out an initial post that read, “Hello, this is IQOO,” with no other information. Reports say that IQOO will be positioned as a premium brand with prices of handsets to go above the RMB 5000 mark (about PHP 38,483.57). This is despite the initial post not giving away much with how Vivo plans to position the IQOO brand. MySmartPrice tracked the iqoo.com domain and were able to trace it back to Vivo and this is perhaps the biggest confirmation that IQOO is the sub-brand of Vivo. Other Chinese smartphone makers like Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi have launched their sub-brands in Honor, Realme, and POCO, respectively. Vivo is the latest to jump in the sub-brand bandwagon. Source

It has previously been revealed that the Vivo V15 Pro has a 32MP pop-up selfie camera. In addition to this, Amazon India has also revealed that the upcoming smartphone from Vivo will also have a 48MP main camera on the rear. The image on the landing page also confirms that the camera will stack the 48MP into one 12MP shot, promising sharper and less noisy photos, on paper. The page also focuses on the in-display fingerprint scanner of the Vivo V15 Pro and its February 20 launch date. The Vivo V15 Pro will have a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED 1080×2316 screen. It supposedly has a Snapdragon 675 with up to 8GB of RAM. The rear camera will have a triple camera setup with a 48MP, 8MP, and 5MP f/2.4 depth-sensor and a 32MP selfie camera. Powering the device is a 3,700mAh battery. The project price of the upper mid-range phone is…

Vivo has cemented its position as an innovator of the smartphone industry last year. From the first in-display fingerprint scanner in the Vivo x21 to the impressive features such as huge screen-to-body ratio in the NEX series. An unofficial image has circulated the web of what might be the speculated V15 or the latest in the NEX series. The image shows a pop-up front camera. The image suggests that this model that will truly highlight what it’s like to have a notch-less display has been in the works since early 2018. Meaning, Vivo has been brainstorming how to create the smartphone with a full-screen display for a while. Aside from the intriguing front elevating camera, rumors are that it will also jump into the triple-lens trend. Based on the image study, we could also be looking at a waterproof smartphone. While nothing’s certain yet, what is certain is that Vivo…

In light of Vivo’s announcement of its new APEX 2019 concept phone, one feature really stood out – its in-display fingerprint scanner, which now covers the entire screen. That means you can basically tap anywhere on the display to unlock the phone, compared to say for example, the V11, which only assigns a specific region on the screen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=108&v=4bnoAx27Aew Recently, a video has been posted online in the YouTube account – ifanr Video爱范儿视频, showing the device in its full glory, and even testing its new features. From  what we can see in the video, the phone sports a glossy back panel, but does seem to be made of plastic. Another thing that’s noticeable is the absence of physical keys, which are now replaced by Touch Sense Technology, which relies on capacitive touch and pressure sensing combined with carefully designed programming logic and software. The screen acts as the speaker, thanks to Body SoundCasting Technology.…

At a press conference in Beijing, Vivo announced the 2019 edition of its APEX phone. Its first ever 5G smartphone, the APEX 2019 features a uniquely recognizable design that utilizes a curved-surface waterdrop glass, and no openings. Yes, you won’t see a speaker, or even a charging port, taking the minimalist smartphone design to a whole new level. The APEX 2019’s FullView design completely rids the phone of bezels. The absence of physical buttons is made up for using Touch Sense Technology, which relies on capacitive touch and pressure sensing. Using carefully designed programming logic and software, the sensors can tell whether it’s the frame of the phone that’s being pressed, while capacitive touch determines position, resulting to extra-sensitive accuracy. The USB port is replaced by a MagPort, a magnetic power connector for both charging and data transfer. This allows the body to be more compact, while also providing a…

Just a few days ago, we posted an article regarding a teaser of Vivo’s next smartphone, set to be unveiled on January 24. There wasn’t a lot of info available, except that it’s going to be that waterdrop phone. Now, the company has officially revealed that it will be the APEX 2019. So what exactly can we expect from Vivo’s new APEX? well, perhaps a good guess would be a full-screen display with no notch. As to how close to a true full screen it is, we’ll have to find out. Chances are, it’ll also be using the periscope design for the front camera, which was present on the first APEX. It’ll also most likely have an in-display fingerprint sensor, which hopefully has been already refined to work outside that small area of the screen, so you can basically unlock the phone by tapping anywhere on the display. In any…

Early January – there was news of an upcoming smartphone from Vivo, which had the codename “Waterdrop.” Not much was known about the device. Recently though, the company has posted an official teaser on its Weibo page. The teaser doesn’t really give away anything except for the date.

In any case, the event’s only a few days away, so stay tuned as we give you the latest updates on this new device from Vivo. Source via

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…

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.

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…
