Vivo, which is one of the four major smartphone brands owned by BBK Electronics, has finally entered the UK and select European markets (via The Verge). Vivo’s sister brands OPPO, OnePlus, and Realme, already have a strong presence in the old continent.
The first phone that Vivo is launching in the UK and Europe is the X51 5G, which is just a rebranded version of the X50 that it announced in China in June this year. The phone’s most impressive feature is its gimbal-like stabilization. Unlike the X50 Pro, which has a Snapdragon 865 processor, the X51 5G is powered by a Snapdragon 765G chipset.
It has a quad-camera setup on the back with a 48MP main sensor, a 13MP depth sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and an 8MP telephoto lens. It also has a 32MP selfie camera, 8GB of RAM, 256GB storage, a 6.56-inch FHD+ OLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate, and a 4,315mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
Vivo X51 5G will be available to purchase in UK from October 27 for £749 ($972). Apart from the UK, the X51 5G will soon be available in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, and Spain, too. However, Vivo hasn’t announced pricing for other European markets yet. Vivo will also be launching the Y70, Y20s, and Y11s phones in Europe in the near future.
