VIVO launches 5G, AR Glass, Super FlashCharge 120W at MWC 2019 Shanghai

VIVO today officially launches three innovations that showcase the company’s technological advancement this year — the 5G, AR Glass, and the 120W Super FlashCharge.

Smartphone brands like OPPO and Huawei already launched their 5G technology a few months back; however, VIVO is not backing down without a fight. Their 5G technology is being showcased in various enabled smart devices and applications, including its newest AR Glasses along with their upcoming smartwatches, headphones, and more.

“Vivo’s mission has always been to develop innovative products to deliver the ultimate user experience, with smart devices and smart services as the core of our business” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of VIVO.

Apart from the prototype unit of the VIVO NEX 5G that was first seen last December 2018, VIVO said that its first commercial 5G smartphone would be available starting Q3 2019. The company’s 5G application in devices features 5G Cloud Game, 5G Screen Mirroring, and 5G EasyShare.


Speaking of VIVO’s newest innovations, the AR Glass is the company’s first 5G supported augmented reality device. It supports dual-screen display and 6DoF Technology. Connecting it to a 5G-powered smartphone will allow you to access mobile office, AR games, 3D high-definition video, facial recognition, and object recognition via the AR Glass. The glass and the smartphone work hand-in-hand as the phone will serve as the main control panel or console or a keyboard, depending on the running application.

Previously reported a few days ago, VIVO’s 120W FlashCharge technology surpasses any current brand’s fast charging technology. It features a new charge pump technology customizable with the Type-C cable. It is said that it will only take 5 mins to charge a 4,000mAh-powered smartphone from 0% to 50% while fully charging it in only 13 mins. The company hasn’t stated yet on whether they will implement it in their upcoming 5G smartphone in Q3 2019.

    I find it amusing that the article speaks of Vivo as separate entity when practically it’s under the same umbrella as Oppo and OnePlus and, as such, shares R&D with each other.
