What Else is the Company Working on?
The much-awaited Vivo tablet will reportedly pack Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 SoC under the hood. The company is reportedly prepping to launch its first-ever tablet in the next few months.
The tablet was originally set to go official in January 2021. However, that didn’t come to fruition. In an interview, Vivo’s VP Hu Baishan revealed that the company will be launching its first tablet in the first quarter of next year.
In other words, the tablet could go official between January and June 2022. Regrettably, the top executive did not divulge other key details about the company’s maiden tablet.
