Vivo’s All-New Screen Design : Another “World’s First” or maybe an “Out of this World”?

Have you seen Vivo’s latest social media posts?

“The galaxies coalesced. Prepare for something greater.  #GoBeyond” Vivo captioned its latest video posted in their social media pages. It was an intriguing video of the moon with its shape emphasized by a curved line. This garnered massive comments from the smartphone brand’s followers since August 20. Could this be a hint of the look of the next flagship smartphone?

Global smartphone brand Vivo has been known for its high-technology innovations that have wowed the world several times over. But it has also been a pioneer of various consumer-centric smartphone designs. As the mysterious video posted teases somewhat about the screen of what could be a latest Vivo smartphone, here is a quick reminiscence of the screen features of its recent smartphone releases:

In 2017, Vivo released the V7+, which has a 5.99-inch All-Screen Display that offers a wider visual experience without compromising a comfortable grip. This gives those who are on-the-go a chance to enjoy a bigger screen for gaming, reading, or watching videos.

In 2018, Vivo proceeded the V7+ with the release of the V9. It was their first flagship smartphone for the year with the notch. It has the new 19:9 FullView™ Display that has a massive 90% screen-to-body ratio that gives users a wider look into the digital world. The Vivo V9 may be as compact as the 5.5-inch phone, but it was able to attain a 6.3-inch screen.

Halfway through the year, Vivo released the Vivo X21, its first X-series smartphone in the Philippines. It still has a the iconic 19:9 FullView™ Display. But it has a bigger screen-to-body ratio of 90.3% to provide a more impactful visual experience for gamers and video hoarders.

June 2018, Vivo was able to get closer to its target when the Vivo NEX was released in selected markets. The NEX introduces the Ultra FullView™ Display experience with a whopping 91.24% screen-to-body ratio. Vivo was able to achieve this by pioneering the 8-megapixel Elevating Front Camera that hides in the body when not in use. It also introduces the Screen Sound Casting Technology that replaces the traditional earpiece speaker entirely and cutting the bezel size.

With these releases, Vivo has proven that the window to the digital world has no limits. What barriers will the brand break next? What could this new feature be then, another “world’s first” or maybe a disruptive “out of this world? Intriguing.

Its 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM increases the speed of launching, loading and switching even large and complex mobile games. With the large storage space, users can go wild downloading all the applications, movies and photos they want without the hassle of clearing space.

While gaming, the system will automatically adjust the CPU to optimize performance according to the game’s resources for a smoother gaming experience. The Game Mode on X21 even prevents accidental touch operations, ensuring gamers only make the moves they intended.

X21 continues Vivo’s Hi-Fi legacy and houses the AK4376A audio chipset. It is also equipped with Deep Field technology, which was developed by Vivo to provide panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects and various environmental audio effects, allowing users to tailor their audio experience.

 

 

Through its continuous research into user needs, Vivo has consistently pursued innovation to solve consumer pain points. Combined with its FullView™ Display, AI photography and upgraded face recognition technology, the X21 possessing the In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, is indeed the smartphone every millennial will willfully work hard for to own.
