Vivo X100 Pro

In a previous article, we discussed Oppo introducing 5.5G connectivity in the smartphone industry. Now, it’s time for other companies to follow the lead and give their smartphones the latest connectivity. In this high-competition market of smartphones, there is no chance of being slow when it comes to new technologies. Therefore, Chinese manufacturers have taken the lead in preparing to adopt the latest 5.5G standard.

After the announcement of 5.5G connectivity in the commercial market, Oppo jumped in and became the first one in the industry to offer smartphones with the new standard. This was followed by Xiaomi 14 Ultra demonstrating the high speed of a 5.5G network. Now, the latest company to reveal its 5.5G-supported devices is Vivo.

The Chinese company has made an official announcement regarding the integration of the latest standard into their two popular series. The Vivo X Fold3 series and vivo X100 series will get the 5.5G (5G-A) connectivity. This will be done via an OTA update that will start in April. Similar to other companies, Vivo claims up to a 300% increase in network speeds with the implementation of the latest 5.5G connectivity.

Vivo product manager Han Boxiao also posted a photo revealing the network speed of Vivo X100 Pro. The speed test results show that the Vivo X100 Pro achieved a download speed of 3619.19Mbps and an upload speed of 160.75Mbps.

That said, this is just the start of the 5.5G era. A lot more companies are expected to announce their phones getting the latest standard. We are hoping to see this all happening starting next month. To recall, the 5.5G network not only brings enhanced speeds but also optimizations for better connectivity. These optimizations also take the help of AI (Artificial Intelligence). Hopefully, the latest standard fixes the shortcomings of the 5G network.
