Vivo Electronics Corp. is a phone brand based in Dongguan, Guangdong, China. It was founded in 2009. The company is another Chinese smartphone maker to enter India recently. It makes low-cost Android phones, and those in the mid-range segment of the market. All of these are available in India too.
Vivo's V-series targets camera enthusiasts and people looking for a solid package in sub-Rs. 40,000 price segment. The brand launched its successor to the Vivo V27 Pro, Vivo V29 Pro, sometime back in India with MediaTek's Dimensity 8200 SoC. It is said to have a camera system that the brand claims is great at low-light portrait photography. But is the all-new Vivo V29 Pro good enough for its Rs. 39,999 starting price, and does the new flagship from Vivo deliver? Let's find out in this detailed Vivo V29 Pro review.
The iQoo Neo 7 Pro 5G is the company's latest smartphone under Rs. 40,000 in India, sitting above the Neo 7 5G (Review), which was launched earlier this year. Compared to its affordable sibling, the Neo 7 Pro 5G packs a more powerful SoC, an extra camera sensor on the back, and comes in two finishes. The sub-Rs. 40,000 segment is currently filled with a plethora of options, including the likes of the OnePlus Nord 3 (Review), OnePlus 11R 5G (Review), Vivo V27 Pro (Review), Nothing Phone 1 (Review) and the Oppo Reno 10 Pro 5G (First Impressions).
The Vivo X90 Pro is the latest Android flagship smartphone to launch in India. The company has also launched the Vivo X90 along with it. In India, the X90 Pro is positioned as the successor to the Vivo X80 Pro (Review), since it is priced upwards of Rs. 80,000. Technically, the Vivo X90 Pro+ would be the true successor to last year's X80 Pro, but Vivo hasn't announced that for other markets other than China. With the X90 Pro, Vivo is now the second smartphone brand in India to launch a phone with a 1-inch camera sensor. The Vivo X90 Pro (and the X90) are the only two smartphones in India currently to feature the flagship MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC.
The Vivo T2 5G is the company's latest mainstream offering in India, whose base variant has been launched for less than Rs. 20,000. The smartphone is an upgrade to the Vivo T1 (Review), which launched in 2021. Some of the changes include the camera setup, charging capability, and the design and build. The direct competition to the Vivo T2 5G is the OnePlus Nord CE 3 Lite 5G, Redmi Note 12 5G, Moto G73 5G, and its own cousin, the iQoo Z7 5G.
