Smart phone brand Vivo continues to strengthens top-tier position in the mobile phone industry as they recently closed a 4 billion dollar partnership with Qualcomm, another tech industry giant.
Even just as a young global smartphone brand, Vivo has already earned a respectable position as among the leading smartphone brands in the Philippines and has been making waves since it first hit the Philippine market in March 29, 2016.
Impressive enough, in just a span of less than two years, Vivo has found a well-deserved spot in a highly-competitive global arena of mobile smart phones both locally and abroad because of its innovative line of phones that are easy on the pocket.
Vivo x Qualcomm
To maintain Vivo’s top-tier position in the technology and mobile phone arena, the smart phone brand and one of Qualcomm‘s key partners, has signed a memorandum of understanding worth 4 billion U.S. dollars with Qualcomm last November 9.
The said memorandum strengthened Vivo and Qualcomm‘s technical partnership and patent sharing and will ensure that Vivo’s position among the top in the smart phone industry will maintain its momentum.
With the help of Qualcomm’s optimized platforms, Vivo aims to stay faithful to its commitment of delivering innovative and technologies that are at the forefront in mobile photography, gaming, smart power saving, and many more.
Moreover, Vivo is working with Qualcomm on research and development in the biometrics space with the introduction of Vivo Under Display fingerprint scanning solution based on Qualcomm fingerprint sensors from the recent Mobile World Congress earlier this year.
This said innovative solution did not disappoint and as such, Vivo plans to continuously work on other technologies, particularly 3D facial identification, palm prints, fingerprints, iris scanning and other biometric technologies, to improve the ease-of-use and security of mobile phone biometrics.
5G and Beyond
Today, with the emergence of 5G, Vivo is looking closely into the significance of human-computer interaction in the 21st century world and has planned a series of collaborative initiatives to accelerate the formulation of 5G standards.
In terms of the 5G SoC (System on Chip), Vivo will also share its many years of consumer market experience with Qualcomm to provide consumers with a better and more customized user experience.
