VIVO isn’t only working on bringing a new premium smartphone fro its sub-brand, the brand appears to be working on releasing a new series of smartphones soon. The firm today released a teaser image on Weibo that suggest it will launch a new smartphone lineup tomorrow.
The teaser poster has the tag See you tomorrow which means the device will launch tomorrow, and another one written in Chinese that says the device is a ¥1000 (~$150) flagship, so we are in essence actually looking up to an entry-level smartphone. It also suggests the new phone will be the first of a new VIVO U series of smartphones, and from the image on the teaser poster, the upcoming device appears to have the same design language as previous VIVO phones.
While there is no way we can view the rear, the teaser says the VIVO phone will adopt the water-drop notch with thin bezels on both sides, while the bottom has a chunk of it. Other than this no other information about the device is available.
