Another smartphone brand from the Far East is apparently seeking to set up shop in the Philippines, following the likes of OPPO and Huawei. The Chinese outfit I’m referring to is Vivo, which sent a job alert to one of my colleagues in the tech industry.
Vivo has immediate openings for different vacancies posted on JobStreet’s Philippine website. Vivo’s local team will be headquartered in Ortigas Center, Pasig City, according to the listings.
Founded in 2009, Vivo operates in 6 countries, including India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, and, of course, in its native China. The Philippines will be the 7th pillar of its Asian expansion.
Vivo is the pioneer of the Quad HD era of smartphones, having introduced the first handset with a 1,440 x 2,560 screen in 2013.
A general Facebook search yields Vivo Xplay Philippines’ page, but it hasn’t been updated since late 2014. My guess is that a local distributor of Vivo phones owns the page but has since stopped posting on Facebook after the Chinese company privately disclosed its desire to directly sell its products here.
Vivo is the pioneer of the Quad HD era of smartphones, having introduced the first handset with a resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels in 2013. Its upcoming flagship, the still-unofficial Vivo X6 Plus, is rumored to sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 21-megapixel main camera, and a deca-core MediaTek Helio X20 processor paired with 4GB of RAM.
