Global smartphone brand Vivo announced today its arrival in the Philippines. Vivo also rolled out its first smartphone offering, the Vivo Y51, which highlights the brand’s expertise in aesthetics, performance, and audio quality.

Vivo is largely known for its first-to-market innovations such as the Vivo X1, one of the slimmest smartphones in 2012 and the world’s first smartphone that came equipped with a Digital-to-Analog (DAC) converter Hi-Fi chip. The X1 was followed by the release of the Vivo X3 in 2013, the world’s first smartphone which sported a 2K resolution display.

“Vivo always takes great pride in our innovation, as we constantly develop high-quality, ground-breaking smartphones that focus on key interest areas for young people. Our smartphones carry class-leading features such as immersive audio quality, beautifully-crafted design, and captivating user experiences,” said Annie Lim, Vivo Philippines Brand Director. “With our entry in the Philippine market, Vivo is excited to offer these innovations to the Filipino youth who would no doubt find our offerings a compelling companion in their daily lives.”

Through its in-house research and development centers, which employs a total of 1,600 design, product development, and marketing staff, Vivo was able to create these innovative products. The company also invested in Hi-Fi acoustics lab in 2011, enabling the development of cutting-edge smartphones that are equipped with Hi-Fi DAC chips.

Vivo also reimagined the Android OS via the proprietary Funtouch OS by adding layers of productivity and accessibility features. The Android-based OS functions include customizable screen unlocking gestures, highly personalized themes, and easy-access options designed to make the user experience simple, intelligent, and intuitive.

The Vivo Y51 is made available for P7,990 in major branches of Memo Xpress, EZ Text, Fonetwist, Flasher, Mega One, Twinline, Cyberwidget, Cybertab, CQE, Aerophone, and Wiltelcom  branches in Manila, Cebu, and Davao starting March 29, 2016. More Vivo product options are set to land in the country by the second quarter of 2016 onward.
