vivo continues to produce tablets for those who want a bigger screen for work, school, or entertainment. Here we have something lighter, but oddly a lot similar to its first tablet, the vivo Pad Air.
The first vivo Pad had an 11.5-inch display, a sub-flagship Snapdragon 870 processor, and 44W fast charging — similar to what the vivo Pad Air has. Although, while it should be lighter, the Air is actually heavier than the first Pad at 530g (vs 489g).
On the upside, the said display has a higher 144Hz refresh rate, a sharper 2.8K resolution, 10-bit color, and a tall 3:2 aspect ratio that’s great for multitasking. There’s also a quad-speaker setup that should provide audible stereo separation.
A decent 8,500mAh battery keeps the light on, paired with a 44W charger. It ships with the latest Android 13-based OriginOS 3.0 interface and works with the vivo Pencil 2 stylus and a special keyboard case.
There’s a 5-megapixel selfie camera on the top of the display, and on the back, there’s a large circular glass that holds the single 8-megapixel rear camera.
Of course, it will have dual-band WiFi, modern Bluetooth 5.2 connectivity, USB-C 3.0 with OTG support, and NFC.
The vivo Pad Air has a price of CNY1,799 (~Php13,900) for the 8GB/128GB, CNY1,999 (~Php15,500) for the 8GB/256GB, CNY2,299 (~Php17,800) for the 12GB/256GB, and CNY2,599 (~Php20,200) for the 12GB/512GB. No word yet if any of vivo’s tablets will finally make their way to the Philippines.
