vivo U1 to arrive tomorrow

Yordan, 18 February 2019

The vivo V15 Pro is coming in two days with a pop-up selfie camera and no notches whatsoever. Before that happens the company is planning to introduce another phone - vivo U1, which is coming tomorrow with a U-shaped notch on the 6.2 display, Snapdragon 439 and up to 4 GB RAM.

A teaser appeared in Chinese websites today, teasing about the first phone from the vivo U series, and moments later the phone was already leaked on Twitter. The U1 was confirmed to have a 13 MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and front-facing 8 MP shooter with an f/2.0 lens.

The dimensions will be 155.1 x 75.1 x 8.28 mm, weight will be 163.5 grams. The battery is said to be 4,030 mAh and charged over a microUSB port.

The vivo will run Funtouch 4.5 OS and pack a fingerprint scanner on the back. Do all these specs sound familiar? Well, this is because the vivo Y95 and vivo Y91 share most of them.

Key difference appears to be memory options - the vivo U1 will come with 3/32 GB, 3/64 GB, 4/64 GB with prices from CNY799 to CNY1,199, which is roughly $177/155. It will be available for purchase in three colors - Starry Night Black, Aurora Red, and Aurora Blue.

Not that it sounds like a completely terrible device, but choosing this over Redmi Note 7 would be a stupid idea to say the least.

I think too much smartphones is not right for industry. The market is so much saturated. OEMs have to limit new products atleast set some product cycle. Vivo has no exact plan for Android Upgrade. Otherwise E-WASTE become dangerous for Planet ...
