Vivo solidifies its position among the top five global smartphone vendors in Q3 2020 with a steady 9.1 percent market share.
According to the most recent report from Canalys and IDC, vivo’s mobile shipments remained in the top five with 31.8 million smartphone units with a 6 percent increase year-on-year.
Vivo’s stronghold in its position is the result of its industry leading innovation in offering a range of high-quality performance smartphones within low-to-mid range prices in Southeast Asia.
This achievement can be credited to vivo for placing the utmost importance on creating devices that are equipped with high-quality performance, user-friendly experience and the latest 5G technology.
On top of that, vivo’s forward-looking strategy contributed to the notable progress in the research and development of 5G technology.
A clear indication of the brand’s commitment to improving 5G mobile phone experience can be found in the near 20 models of 5G smartphones developed by vivo in the past year. Vivo firmly encourages the adoption of 5G by making more smartphone choices available for consumers, thus spearheading the adoption of fast and seamless connectivity.

Continuing on the spirit of paying it forward, vivo Malaysia will be focusing on driving CSR initiatives for those affected by the pandemic in the coming months.
