The year 2014 also witnessed the unveiling of the vivo X5Max, the world’s thinnest smartphone at 4.75mm, a record that remains untouched in the industry. 

Anticipating the future, vivo launched the vivo X20Plus UD in 2018, introducing the world to in-display fingerprint scanning before it became commonplace.

Fast forward to 2021, vivo continued its legacy with the vivo X70 series, featuring the brand’s first self-developed imaging chip, the V1. These ‘world’s firsts’ epitomized vivo’s commitment to delivering innovation at users’ fingertips, enhancing their mobile and digital experiences.

In 2023, vivo proudly introduced the vivo V29 Series 5G, the latest flagship-level addition to the captivating V lineup. Boasting the innovative Aura Light 2.0 and Smart Color Temperature Adjustment feature, combined with a new aesthetic design and powerful performance, the vivo V29 5G is set to redefine the smartphone experience for users seeking to capture and celebrate life’s exciting moments.
