Vivo to accelerate the formulation of 5G standards
With the advent of 5G, the Chinese company understands the importance of human-computer interaction and has planned a series of collaborative initiatives to accelerate the formulation of 5G standards.
In terms of the 5G SoC (System on Chip), Vivo will also share its many years of consumer market experience with one of the biggest chip maker to provide consumers with a better and more customized user experience.
Vivo Biometrics and 3D Technology
Vivo is also working with Qualcomm on research and development in the biometrics space. At MWC Shanghai this July, the smartphone giant unveiled the Under Display Fingerprint Scanning Solution based on Qualcomm fingerprint sensors and drew the industry’s spotlight.
The company will continue to work with Qualcomm on other core technologies, particularly 3D facial identification, palm prints, fingerprints, iris scanning and other biometric technologies, to improve the ease-of-use and security of mobile phone biometrics.
Ranking among the top five mobile phone brands in the world, the Chinese company continues to lead in technology application and consumer insights and aims to stay at the forefront of technology by working with global partners.
This month, the company announced expansion plans into the European and African markets in 2018 to increase market share and brand leadership.
With this 4 billion U.S dollar memorandum of understanding, this partnership with Qualcomm will help to strengthen its leading position in the industry.
