Chinese company Vivo is always trying to introduce new technologies. It is the beginning of the year released Vivo X20 Plus — the first smartphone with podkladnymi fingerprint scanner. But with 5G manufacturer, it seems that rush will not.
The prototype is ready

At the conference the International Symposium on ICT Technology Vivo brought prototypes of smartphones with support networks of the fifth generation. But this is only a test version, which is very far from the final product.

When to wait

Vivo representatives say that the smartphone will be ready next year, but releasing it to the market until. But 5G smartphones for sale expect to deliver only in 2020.

And all because even next year the 5G will still be “immature”. Therefore, the timing of release of such devices depend entirely on how fast the operators will enter the networks of the fifth generation in operation.

By the way, Vivo “kicking the tires” in this region in 2016. During this time the company sent a 3GPP-more than a thousand technical proposals.
