Rumor | Vivo will launch its first tablet alongside the X60 Pro+
Vivo has officially confirmed that the X60 Pro+, the highest-end of its new "gimbal-phone" series, is a Snapdragon 888-powered device and will launch on January 21, 2021. However, MyDrivers now asserts that the OEM has other interesting new products in the works that might take the stage alongside it.
The new offerings consist of tablets (or "Pads", rather), which may not only bear the Vivo name for the first time, but possibly also those of its sub-brands iQOO (a premium gaming-focused division) and NEX (another flagship-grade line of phones).
Furthermore, one or more of them might also release a first-gen laptop in the near future, with names along the lines of "iQOO Book". Their existence is currently hinted at through new alleged trademarks for such monikers.
MyDrivers also notes that, according to recent market research, tablets and 2-in-1s are getting more popular in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, and that 5G units might be in more demand going forward.
In addition, OPPO, a sister company of Vivo's, is also now linked to the release of its own first tablet (and possible laptop) in 2021. Therefore, maybe it is plausible that the X60 Pro+ will have some of its limelight stolen on its inaugural stage by its maker's first-gen slate.
On the other hand, with its rumored 6.56-inch 120Hz AMOLED display and up to 12GB of RAM - not to mention the potentially impressive 50+48MP combination for its rear cameras, the phone might be capable of keeping eyes on itself in any case.
