Vivo has just finished unveiling their second tablet ever, aptly named the Vivo Pad 2, though spelled Vivo Pad2 by the company. This is a 12.1-inch tablet that will launch in China on April 24th from $349 and upwards.
The first Vivo Pad already had high specs, and the Vivo Pad2 is no different.
At the core, this is another one of the first tablets with the hot new 4nm 3.05 GHz MediaTek Dimensity 9000 processor, Mali-G710 GPU, 8GB / 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, and 128GB / 256GB / 512GB UFS3.1 storage.
And the screen keeps up with the other main hardware, sporting a 12.1-inch screen with a display resolution of 2800 x 1968, giving it a PPI of 284. The screen has a 144Hz refresh rate, 600 nits brightness, and HDR 10.
The tablet cameras for giving users something to watch doesn’t disappoint either, with dual f/2.2 13MP and 2MP rear cameras with 4K video recording, and an 8MP f/2.0 front camera.
Running the Android 13 user interface OriginOS 3, the Vivo Pad2 also offers the options of enabling AI subtitles during video conferences.
The audio features are very good for a tablet, with 4 full range speakers and 2 tweeters, as well as a newly developed audio codec that takes a more precision approach to these speaker advantages. So this will be fun to check out.
As for the other Vivo Pad 2 specifications, it’s also equipped with Wi-Fi 6, BT 5.3, NFC, USB C 3.2 Gen 1, and has a gravity sensor, light sensor, electronic compass, gyro color temperature sensor, and hall sensor.
The Vivo Pad 2 battery life is 10 hours long, with a capacity of 10,000 mAh and 44W / 4A charging with fast charge support. The magnetic stylus charges wirelessly when slapped onto the tablet.
The new Vivo Pencil2 isn’t just a 4096 levels of pressure sensitive pen, but it’s equipped with a tiny motor inside too that simulates haptic feedback when the pen is used in order to physically simulate a regular pen experience. The pen nibs (pen tips) can be changed from soft to hard, depending on the use.
It’s light for a large tablet at 585 grams, and like other flagship tablets it’s thin too with a thickness of 6.59mm. Color options are blu, violet, and dark gray.
To begin with this tablet will be released in China exclusively first, and I’m trying to find out if Vivo will launch it in more markets soon too, since this could an interesting tablet to have.
