Vivo showed a pre-commercial 5G-smartphone, which will be released in 2019

The company also officially confirmed that the release of a consumer smartphone with 5G support will be held in 2020. In September 2018, Vivo confirmed that it is working on 5G-compatible smartphones in partnership with the operator China Telecom and the chipmaker Qualcomm. Later, Vivo successfully tested a 5G connection on a modified version of its flagship NEX. Now the Chinese manufacturer has demonstrated the capabilities of 5G at the International Symposium on Information and Communication Technologies (International Symposium on ICT) in China.

At the Vivo event for the first time publicly showed the work of the NEX series smartphone on fifth-generation mobile networks. It is noteworthy that this is one of several pre-sale prototypes with 5G support, which the company plans to release in 2019, similar to competitors. The head of the Vivo Standard Product division Zhang Yuan also made his own speech on this topic.


Recall that Vivo has made a significant contribution to the development of 5G over the past few years. In 2016, the company created a special research and development center to test the new standard and has since offered the 3GPP consortium more than 1,500 technical technology improvements. The commercial release of the first Vivo 5G smartphones will take place no earlier than 2020.
