Despite the stigma of China-made products, Chinese smartphone manufacturers have continued to gobble up global market share. The current top 10 ranking is populated by the likes of Huawei, OPPO, and Vivo. Design- and technology-wise, they have improved by leaps and bounds as well, competing with brands like Apple and Samsung.
After weeks of speculation, teasing, and wild theorizing, a launch date for the Philippine market has been set for the Vivo X21.
The Vivo X21, one of the few smartphones out there with an under-display fingerprint sensor, will be launched in the Philippines this June. This, according to an email sent to us by a company representative just now. While no date was set, Vivo did send us a retail unit for testing weeks ago.
We’re a step closer to a bezel-less future, as Vivo finally takes the wraps off what could be one of the most exciting smartphones this year, the Vivo NEX.
NEX, Vivo’s next-gen flagship smartphone with an almost-zero-bezel screen, is set to launch June 12. We already have a good idea of what the phone might look like. On the inside, however, there are still plenty of questions needing answers.
Vivo is scheduled to launch its flagship NEX series June 12th in its native China. Allegedly, there will be three almost-borderless smartphones in the lineup — the Vivo NEX, NEX S, and NEX A. They will be almost identical, but they’re supposed to come with varying specs and setups for the front-facing camera.
Remember the Vivo APEX concept phone that was showcased at MWC 2018 in February? Word has it that its retail version will be launched as the Vivo NEX on June 12. And that’s not all. It may even have two variants.
Xiaomi, OnePlus, and most recently, OPPO have all been in the conversation of manufacturers that produce value-for-money smartphones of late. But don’t sleep on Vivo in 2018. Not after its recent announcement in its native China, where the new Vivo Z1 has turned heads.
Or the closest thing you’ll ever get to an all-screen smartphone. Yes, besides Lenovo, Vivo is also seemingly throwing its hat into the ring, delivering on its promise to make the Vivo APEX concept phone a reality. The company has already sent invites to a June 12, 2018, event in Shanghai, China. Take a look at the material below.
Vivo has quietly announced a new phone for the Philippines’ attractive mid-market segment. Say hello to the new Vivo Y85.
Remember the Vivo X21 UD, the Vivo smartphone with under-display fingerprint sensor that was first launched in China two months ago? We have a strong feeling that it’s going to be offered in the Philippines soon.
Google is taking a different approach in 2018. The technology giant has released the beta edition of the upcoming version of Android — which puts artificial intelligence at the core of the operating system — to smartphones other than its own Pixel series devices.
Counterpoint Research’s report for the first quarter of 2018 is in. And it shows an interesting detail.
