Adding to a growing list of series it already has, Vivo is expected to launch a new G series of smartphones with the Vivo G1, tipped to launch sometime in May. Apart from the first model’s leaked specifications, we’re yet to find out how Vivo will place the series in its increasingly crowded portfolio.
Going into the details, Weibo’s trusted leaker Digital Chat station (Weibo ID : @ 数码 闲聊 站) has posted that the Vivo G1 is scheduled to launch next month. This can be traced back to a new Vivo smartphone, that was spotted on China’s Industry and Information Technology Ministry’s website with similar specifications a while back.
This will mark the company’s entry with the Vivo G1, which will be the first model of possibly a new G lineup of smartphones into the market. The dimensions of the device seems to be similar to its Vivo S6 sporting a 6.44-inch FHD+ OLED display with a water-drop notch and a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels.
The phone is interestingly touted to be powered by Samsung’s Exynos 980 processor, with a clock frequency of 2.2Ghz. The optics of the phone include a 32MP selfie camera at the front, and a rear quad-camera setup with 48MP main sensor with an 8MP, two 2MP sensors. However, the functionality of the auxiliary sensors is unknown at the moment.
