7″ Vivo X Note tipped with SD 8 Gen 1 unveiled, SD870-powered Vivo Pad


Today, vivo released a tablet and a tablet-sized phone. The vivo X Note’s 7-inch screen and curvy corners make it impossible to operate with one hand. The vivo Pad is a great option if you’re looking for something with a little more heft and a QWERTY keyboard.

For multitasking, this beast boasts a 7″ Samsung E5 AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution. A 21:10 (3,080 x 1,440 pixel) aspect ratio is rare, but vivo claims it is better for media consumption and multitasking. A+ rating from DisplayMate shouldn’t come as a shock. The display claims a brightness of 1,500 nits and a DCI-P3 coverage of 112%.


A huge ultrasonic fingerprint scanner (3D Sonic Max from Qualcomm) is tucked away under the screen, similar to the one seen on the iQOO 8 Pro. It is possible to read two fingerprints simultaneously with the FP reader since it is so huge (two fingerprints increase the security 50,000 times compared to just one, says vivo). A front-mounted colour temperature sensor aids in colour accuracy.

Back to multitasking, the vivo X Note has the Snapdragon 810 Gen 1 processor, which isn’t a surprise given its price point. This model features a 256GB hard drive as standard equipment. A device with 12GB of RAM is also an option, as is a 12/512GB model. To increase security, the Snapdragon processor has a “Secure Processing Unit” (first time for the company).

Chips are cooled using an enormous (47,132 mm2) vapour chamber and a graphite sheet. With the use of a MEMC method, the GPU output may be increased in frame rate without putting additional strain on the GPU.


The Note has a quad-camera setup on the back of the device. The 50MP ISOCELL GN1 – 1/1.3″ – 1.2m native pixels, 2.4m with binning, is included. This camera’s brilliant f/1.57 aperture will help it perform well in low-light situations. T* anti-reflective coatings are applied to all of ZEISS’s Vario-Tessar lenses, and the ZEISS emblem can’t be missed.

x A 5x optical magnification periscope with a 125mm focal length (f/3.4 aperture) is also on board (and up to 60x digital zoom). To achieve 2x magnification in the mid-range zoom range and for portraiture, there is a 12 MP module (IMX663) equipped with a 47mm lens (f/2.0). The 114-degree extreme wide-angle camera has 48 MP and a 14 mm lens. With the special vivo V1 ISP, all of this is possible, even if you’re snapping a picture of 30 people at once.

To my dismay, the behemoth’s battery capacity is relatively little — just 5,000 milliamp-hours. We anticipated more from a huge gadget marketed towards power users, despite the fact that it charges at 80W via a wire and 50W wirelessly, which is a lot of juice.


The Note comes in three colours: Blue, Black, and Gray.. Both the back and the front of the phone are made of leather, with fake stitching on the back, and they all feature a full-width camera panel like the vivo X70 Pro+.

Blue, black, and grey are the primary colours.

the Pad of vivo

For those who need even more screen real estate, the vivo Pad has an 11-inch display. It’s a stylus-enabled laptop that also doubles as a keyboard for maximum efficiency. For a more laptop-like experience, you may use the trackpad on the optional keyboard in conjunction with the kickstand on the flip cover.


The display features a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution. A Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos-enabled speaker system provides a truly immersive entertainment experience. A 3D ToF sensor sits right next to the front-facing camera. The stylus is supported, and it has a pressure sensitivity range of 4,096 levels.

Origin OS HD is a new branch of vivo software that is running on the vivo Pad. Using NFC, you can link your vivo phone with the Pad and have the tablet show your phone’s screen. There are a number of advantages to using a computer with a mobile phone:

Fast storage and external screens up to 4K at 60 Hz may be connected to the USB-C connector, which supports USB 3.2 Gen1 rates of 5 Gbps.


Using the USB-C connector, an external monitor may be powered by 4K video at 60 Hz.
USB-C ports can drive an external monitor with 4K video at 60 Hz.

With a thickness of only 6.55 mm and a weight of 498g, the Pad is a slim and light piece of aircraft aluminium. Antenna lines will not be seen on this slate since vivo used proprietary technologies to conceal the antenna behind the display. With its 8,040 mAh battery, the tablet is capable of quick charging at 44W.

In China, pre-orders for the vivo Pad begin today, and the device will go on sale on the 15th (Friday). For CNY 2,500 ($390/€360/29,800), you can get an 8/128 GB model, while an 8/256 GB one costs CNY 3,000. CNY 2,300 and CNY 2,900 will be available for purchase upon launch, however this isn’t completely accurate. In addition to the company’s official shop, Tmall, and other stores carry the vivo devices.


Stylus CNY 350, keyboard $94/€87/7,200, and flip case CNY 200 ($32/€29) are all you need for the CNY 600 ($94/€87/7,200).
