Vivo, China’s Third Most Popular Brand, is Launching in Pakistan Next Week

Vivo, China’s third most popular smartphone brand, is launching in Pakistan on July 5th, 2017, we have checked with sources. It is ranked 5th globally with over 80 million sales in 2016.

While there’s no word on which models Vivo will introduce in local market, we can confirm you that they will launch at least four smartphones to commence operations with price points between Rs. 15,000 to Rs. 30,000.

We can also tell you that Vivo will make its V5s smartphone — that comes with 20-Megapixel Selfie Camera — available in Pakistan.

We have heard that V5s, that comes with 4GB Ram, 64 GB ROM, 20MP front camera, 13MP rear camera and Octa-Core 64bit processor, will be priced below or around 30K mark.

Considering OPPO’s success with selfie camera phones, Vivo is expecting to make an early impression with its V5s in Pakistan and then capitalize the position to market and introduce other budget and flagship devices among Pakistani consumers.

Just in case if you are wondering, Vivo started manufacturing smartphones in 2011. Before this the company specialized in feature phones and telephone handsets.

Other than China, Vivo operates in 10 overseas markets with four production bases spread across Asia Pacific.

Company said that its focus for smartphone devices is primarily design, camera experience and hi-fi sound at a price that’s affordable for masses. Not to mention, Vivo devices come with customized OS that they call Funtouch OS.

Early reports suggest that Vivo will launch in Pakistan through a soft launch, however, it is planning mega launch events down the line with more announcements during next 2-3 months.

    Price ranges to fit hai

  • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

    Their flagship xplay6 is using outdated SD 820 SoC with price tag of around 40000 INR.

    • Usman Munir

      بھائی صاحب جس فون کی آپ بات کر رہے ہو، وہ 2016 کے آخر کی ریلیز کے اور اس وقت کا جدید پروسیسر s820ہی تھا
      کوئی بھی سیکنڈ ہینڈ فون اس پروسیسر کے ساتھ 32000 سے کم نہیں ہے
      اس حساب سے 40000 میں بہت مناسب ہے

      • Muhammad Arif Kamboh

        agreed

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Bhai saab 40000 INR ki baat kar raha hun. PkR myn khudi jasab laga lo.

      • faithful

        LG g5 21000 ka mila raha he is processor k sath

    • outdated SD 820 lol!

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Yes. Qualcomm has releases 821 and 835 after that and 836 is about to release with Note 8.

        • still doesn’t make SD 820 outdated. cause of just 2 releases after that

    • Hafiz Abdul Basit BJ

      lol so you are saying that you own SD 835 SOC really ? that’s why 820 is outdated for you :P

      • Zafar Abbas Rizvi

        Hansna tha?

        • FuriousNinja

          He is right though. See phones for 70000rs and you ll find 820 on most of them. I don’t know how it is exactly ‘outdated’ for you. And this flagship if it costs approximately this much will be no different.

        • Hafiz Abdul Basit BJ

          lol nhe rona tha, apke mindset ko Salam #salute

      • Haider Shah

  • Muhammad Yasir

    AMAZING !

    Vivo is going to define a new standard in Luxury Phones !

    they have GREAT phones ! every component is top notch inside their handsets !

    Waiting to see the price , they do charge a premium but it’s probably deserved given the extremely fine quality handsets they offer !

  • Fozia_Loves_Abdul_Wahab

    Vivo just bought ipl rights for whopping 450 crore for period 2018-2022.

  • fonephreak

    BK electronics owns OPPO, VIVO and OnePlus whereas oppo and vivo follow somewhat same business model of providing lower spec’d phones at higher prices and selling them by providing retailers higher margins and other target based perks, OnePlus focuses on making phones based on consumer opinion which they call their community and has a growing fan base(consumers). I think they should bring OnePlus officially to Pakistan due to its popularity world over and in Pakistan

  • AbdulB1

    What do OnePlus, Oppo, and Vivo have in common? Yes, they are all Chinese brands owned by BBK . I think they should had launched oneplus in Pakistan instead.
