Change is the only constant in life, and the smartphone industry is no exception. With each passing day we are witnessing breakthrough in smartphone innovations that are worth noticing in the modern times. Smartphones have come a long way from being just a device used for communication to one of the most innovative devices that constantly enrich life and offer everything on the tip of our fingers. In today’s time, a well-rounded powerful device that is a combination of a superb camera, rich battery, high end specs and aesthetic designs will surely capture the markets attention. With every new smartphone launch, brands look for a way to improve their smartphones through technology and innovation to stand ahead of their competition. The trends in smartphone technology are constantly evolving to suit the needs of fast-moving generation. Something that would be revolutionary today, might appear on most devices tomorrow.
Keeping this in mind, vivo announced a series of technological advancements at its recently concluded Annual vivo Developer Conference (VDC), demonstrating strengths in system performance, application services, IoT and industry opportunities that underpin the company’s user-oriented strategy, outlining a comprehensive ecosystem.
“2021 was the year for vivo to bring out essential changes, as we transformed ourselves from a creator of quality products to a creator of revolutionary products empowered by technology and our design philosophy,” said Shi Yujian, Senior Vice President of vivo at the 2021 vivo Developer Conference, highlighting the importance of the company’s user-oriented strategy that drives its innovations.

- Computing Performance
To enhance computing performance that allows better smoothness and increases the efficiency of power consumption, vivo has designed computing engines including high real-time computing engine, intelligent scheduling computing engine and high-speed data-chasing-loading computing engine. Zhou Wei, Vice President of vivo and Head of vivo Artificial Intelligence Global Research Institute introduced them at the event.
- Memory Management
vivo has invested in innovation to enhance memory management efficiency and performance. The company optimized an independent virtual cache unit to ensure a comprehensive management of the system resident memory life cycle, application memory allocation, and DRAM and SoC internal cache.
- Unique Antenna RF Design
There are multiple times consumers face an issue with signals and poor network connection in their smartphones. Being a handheld device, smartphones face signal obstruction due to some postures. This has recently been solved with vivo’s latest innovation, the Unique Antenna RF Design. This innovation solves any such signal obstruction faced by the users and improves user experience. In addition, the AI technology can identify when the Wi-Fi signal is weak, including video shuttering when watching videos at home and low net speeds outside of it. The system can intelligently select the best network to ensure a better internet experience, largely reducing the freezing rate when encountering weak Wi-Fi signal.
- IoT ecosystem
vivo’s IoT ecosystem is also empowered by its technological advancement that upgrades and optimizes connection of devices, the efficiency of data flow, and quick apps, offering a more enjoyable smart home experience to users. Under its IoT ecosystem, vivo has cooperated with around 60 smart brands in China.
