This includes Vivo’s upgraded 5G-6 antenna design for enhanced signal. Powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Mobile Platform with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G Modem-RF System and UFS 3.0 high-speed flash memory, NEX 3 5G, Vivo says that the phone can deliver top computing performance, smooth multitasking capabilities, Multi-Gigabit download speeds, ultra-low latency, and robust network reliability. The dual WLAN Acceleration technology in NEX 3 5G uses two Wi-Fi signal networks at the same time to boost network speed, offering smoother performance without stutters or delays.
To support 5G’s high energy consumption, Vivo says the smartphone has enhanced stamina and thermal conductivity. A 4500mAh-battery gives users the fuel to go through their day without running out of battery. Meanwhile, the Vapor Chamber Cooling System ensures the device can remain cool even with heavy 5G usage.
“Vivo is proud to bring NEX 3 5G* to the market. The company’s commitment to expanding the use of 5G is not limited to smartphones, however,” said Qin Fei, Head of Vivo Communications Research Institute. “In line with our ‘5G + Smart Ecosystem’ approach, Vivo will provide users with the ultimate upgraded 5G experience through other complementary technologies and products including AR glasses, smartwatches, headphones, and other wearable devices – all with the ability to provide more comprehensive services across AI platforms. This multi-device, multi-application, and multi-scenario approach will help consumers connect to the digital and physical worlds, providing a more personalized user experience across all Vivo 5G devices.” Vivo has accelerated its 5G R&D and pioneered standardization since the company first established its 5G Research Institute in Beijing in 2016. Since then, it has acquired 5G patents and has become one of the key contributors to the 3GPP standard group. At MWC Shanghai 2019, Vivo displays its first commercial 5G smartphone and showcased its nascent technologies such as the Vivo AR Glass and the 5G Cloud Game for the first time.
Vivo has been working closely with Qualcomm Technologies, who shares the same vision as Vivo – to make 5G accessible to all with lower prices to make 5G-enabled products affordable for all consumers.
“Qualcomm Technologies is excited to advance its collaboration with Vivo to deliver a 5G future,” said ST Liew, vice president, QUALCOMM CDMA Technologies Asia-Pacific Pte. Ltd. “Following years of work, 5G has become a commercial reality in 2019, and we know that such breakthroughs can only be achieved through working closely together with the ecosystem. Qualcomm Technologies and Vivo plan to continue working together to lead industry initiatives critical to 5G development in APAC.”
