vivo Ranks As World’s Second-Fastest Growing 5G Smartphone Brand, According To Strategy Analytics


vivo announces its ranking as the second fastest growing 5G smartphone brand globally in Q1 2021, jumping 62% quarter-on-quarter, with 19 million smartphone units shipped. According to new research released by Strategy Analytics , vivo’s 5G smartphone strongholds are within the China and Europe markets. As a fervent advocate of 5G development, vivo has made remarkable progress in 5G standards and core technologies, committed to providing users with a growing range of 5G mobile phones and an improved 5G experience.

vivo Chief Executive Officer, Mike Xu said, “As a leader in both smartphone manufacturing and 5G connectivity, vivo has been designing a diverse lineup of products that are ready for the next generation of connectivity to bring joy to users worldwide at modest price points. As the mobile infrastructure is still relatively isolated from the physical world, existing solely as an auxiliary tool, an extreme degree of seamlessness will be required to dynamically connect our physical surrounding with the omnipresent digital systems. Paving the way for the development of 6G in the decade to come, vivo has established a research team to explore the possibilities of 6G through application scenarios. Our aim is to enable our customers to be equipped with smartphones that are not only future-ready but are able to match the demands of their digital lifestyle.”

Through the application of over 3,000 5G invention patents and the submission of over 5,000 5G proposals to the telecommunications standard development organizations of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) since February 2021, vivo continues to demonstrate its forward-looking vision towards supporting Malaysians with the next level of devices.
