Tech companies are always on the race to be first as it carries some sort of pride and that is something Vivo knows very well since its inception in 2009.
The company started expanding internationally in 2014 and in late 2019, officially ventured into the Kenyan market.

For the past 9 years Vivo has been an innovation house. They have been in pursuit of perfection, bringing new and surprising features to smartphones way ahead of their time. Currently, Vivo takes the 5th position in terms of global market share.
In November 2012, the company launched Vivo X1, the first smartphone with a dedicated Hi-Fi quality audio chip. They later launched Vivo X3 and Vivo Xplays 3s, world’s slimmest smartphone and world’s first smartphone with a 2K display respectively in 2013. In December 2014, Vivo X5 Max was launched and it was the world’s thinnest smartphone.
Vivo was the first to launch a smartphone with a 24MP selfie camera in September 2017 with the Vivo V7 and the V7+. Vivo was even the first to launch the first smartphone with an in-display fingerprint with the Vivo X20 UD Apex in January 2018 and later in March the same year announced the Vivo Apex Full View that not only featured the in-display fingerprint scanner and a Screen SoundCasting Technology but also an elevating selfie camera that’s now featuring in most devices this year.
Vivo is working on fast charge at 120W which means 4000mAh batteries will be able to charge from 0 to 50% in 5 minutes and a complete charge to take 13 minutes. Vivo’s FlashCharge works at 20V and 6A. These specifications are slated to feature among Vivo’s upcoming smartphones for this year.
Vivo’s gaming phones come with features such as Multi-Turbo(AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Net Turbo, Cooling Turbo), enhanced GPU, 4D vibrations and 3D Surround Sound.
It’s pretty clear Vivo leads and other smartphone manufacturers follow. The company making a local presence will stir up the competition and offer better options for smartphone buyers.
Vivo’s official presence in Kenya is here to stay and they will not only have retail stores that make it easier to access their devices but also service centres to cater to their customer’s needs.
Vivo devices will range from budget smartphones, midrange to its flagships and feature the latest specifications such as in-display fingerprint scanners, triple rear cameras, pop-up or punch hole selfie cameras, better processors, the latest Android versions plus pack more than average RAM and onboard storage compared to what the market currently offers for much less.
These specifications are what users deserve and Vivo devices assure value for their money when they purchase them.
Recently, the mobile phone manufacturer launched its Y series of smartphones in Kenya and they are targeting the youth with these slew of devices. The devices are they Y12, Y15 and Y17 and they share a lot of specifications.
Vivo also launched the Vivo V17 Pro in Kenya that features a dual pop-up selfie camera following on the footsteps of the V15 Pro that introduced that feature to the world before other companies adopted the feature.
The Vivo V17 Pro delivers refinement and efficiency instead of gimmicks and gaudiness. You get an experience that leaves very little to be desired making it an excellent everyday companion. It also brings slick design, gorgeous SUPER AMOLED screen, functional multi-camera system, sufficient RAM and storage that offer superb performance – an absolute waterfall of checkmarks for a midrange device. This synergy shouldn’t be underestimated.
Vivo devices being available in the Kenyan market means smartphone consumers will now have a wider variety when it comes to options of what smartphone to pick.
Vivo’s official retail stores are available countrywide. In Nairobi, you can find them at Tricom Agakhan walk, Harambee Avenue, Embassy house -Tricom Embassy, Taveta lane -Kibe Com, Wabera Street -Far East Electronics, Moi Avenue-Mobile Hub, Smartphone Store KE while in Eldoret Town, you can get them at Ananda Communication
