Vivo announced their first tablet computer today after months of leaks and even a few teasers the last couple of weeks leading up to the unveiling. Since it’s Vivo’s first tablet, they’ve simply called it the Vivo Pad:
The Vivo Pad starts launching in China today and is taking order from 2499 Chinese Yuan, or the equivalent of around $390.
It runs Android 12 with Vivo’s OriginOS HD on top with a couple of extra settings and features, some of which makes pairing it with smartphones or other computers easier.
Specifications for the Vivo Pad are on the higher end, as it’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor, features 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM, and 128GB and 256GB UFS 3.1 storage options.
The 11-inch (10.95-inch) LCD screen has the 2560 x 1600 resolution display you would expect, as well as a 120Hz refresh rate (240Hz with the digitizer), HDR 10, and quad speakers with Dolby Vision Atmos.
It then features an 8MP front camera, dual 8MP and 13MP rear cameras with 4K recording and a 112 degree wide angle lens, a 8040 mAh battery capacity with a 11 hour battery life, 44W charging, Wi-Fi 6, BT 5.2, NFC, a USB C 3.1 port, and optional keyboard and digitizer pen.
In terms of dimensions, the Vivo tablet is 7mm thick or 6.55mm excluding the rear camera, and has a weight of 489 grams.
Color choices are either space grey or sky blue at launch, though a purple model will be added in November. And we can see that the rear lens cover makes Vivo’s tablet stand out a little bit.
