The Chinese smartphone brands are churning more smartphones for the mid-range segment. Just take the vivo V3 max for example. It is a compelling premium mid-range smartphone that offers “flagship level” specs for RM1,399. Now vivo is turning things up a notch with its newly announced X7 and X7 Plus.
vivo shot for the moon with their latest flagship smartphone, the Xplay 5, when they announced that it would come with a whopping 6GB of RAM. At the time, it was more than any other smartphone in the world, so naturally it drew some attention.
Now, you can get your hands on one of vivo’s most powerful flagship smartphones yet, but the price might shock you.
Vivo recently unveiled two smartphones in Mumbai under their “V’ line of affordable smartphones — the V3 and V3Max. Just hours later, the higher-spec V3Max has popped up online on both DirectD and Vivo Malaysia’s Facebook page.
