A Transparent Smartphone is Probably Next on Vivo’s Wonder To-do List

Transparent smartphone anyone?



Under 3 months since it debuted the world’s first 6 GB RAM smartphone and a month since the IDC crowned it a top 5 smartphone vendor, Chinese device maker Vivo is not done basking in the limelight, yet. According to a teaser posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo, the company could be on the verge of release a device straight from the movies: a transparent smartphone.

While this could be just a tease like any other meant to get our tongues wagging and excited, the usual hype tactics in this industry, it could also be that surprise we hope it is. And Vivo should know its way around such since it has showcased a transparent smartphone in Captain America: Civil War as part of its heavy marketing efforts.

Details about the device are sketchy at the moment but since the launch is likely to be soon, we might hear a lot more about it in coming days or wait to be shocked when it’s finally announced. Whichever comes first, we’re definitely crossing our fingers for this one.
