Vivo is showcasing several 5G enabled smart devices and applications, as well as a new technology called Super FlashCharge 120W at Mobile World Congress (MWC) Shanghai 2019.
Based on 5G enabled smartphones, the company introduced its strategy to expand its 5G device offerings to include AR glasses, smart watches, smart headphones and more. Vivo will adopt a multi-device, multi-application, and multi-scenario approach in its development.
"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," says Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo. "We hope through the introduction of new strategy and innovation we can truly make a big impact in improving people's quality of life and the society as a whole."
Following the launch of pre-commercial Vivo NEX 5G smartphone earlier, Vivo has reached another milestone towards its 5G smartphone development. At MWC Shanghai, Vivo has on display its first commercial 5G smartphone, the IQOO 5G. The device comes with liquid-cooled soaking tech and AR support and will be officially available starting Q3 2019.
Based on 5G network and the 5G smartphone, the company also showcases a range of 5G applications including 5G Cloud Game, 5G Screen Mirroring and 5G EasyShare and many more smart life scenarios.
For example, the 5G Cloud Game demonstrated at MWC does not run on the smartphone itself, but on the cloud via 5G network thanks to 5G's ultra-high speed and ultra-low latency. Through cloud rendering services, video and audio is streamed in real-time to the device. By shifting the processing from the device to the cloud, users can now enjoy high-definition picture quality and a low-latency gaming experience. This working model also applies to 5G Screen Mirroring and 5G EasyShare.
Vivo also unveils its first Vivo AR Glass, which supports dual-screen display and 6DoF Technology. After connecting with the 5G smartphone, users can experience a range of applications such as mobile office, AR games, 3D high-definition video, facial recognition and object recognition on the Vivo AR Glass.
Once the Vivo AR Glass projects the content, the 5G smartphone will then act as the control that allows user to switch and select applications. For instance, when playing a game, the smartphone becomes the main console. Whereas on a mobile office setting, the smartphone will turn into a keyboard. The five types of applications that are currently supported by Vivo AR Glass are: mobile game, mobile office, 5G theatre, facial recognition and object recognition.
Vivo Super FlashCharge 120W is another innovation showcased at MWC Shanghai, a first in the industry to deliver 120W ultra-high power charging. The Super FlashCharge 120W features a new charge pump technology with a customizable Type-C data cable and travel charger, realizing 120W ultra-high power charging (20V/6A). THe tech comprises an MCU controller for the fast charging functionality, monitoring the battery status, and adjusting the output power to avoid voltage overload and overheating problems. Furthermore, the tech uses the Battery Management System (BMS) for security and ensures a longer battery life.
According to the data from lab test, Vivo Super FlashCharge 120W takes only 5 mins to charge a 4,000mAh battery from 0 to 50%, and can fully charge the smartphone in just 13 minutes.
