Vivo launched the new T-series line of smartphones in India on Wednesday, February 9.
Vivo T1 is available in two configurations – 4GB RAM + 128GB storage, 6GB RAM + 128GB storage – for Rs 16,990 and Rs 19,990, respectively.
DH has received the Vivo T1 and here are the first thoughts on the new mid-range handset.
Design and display
The new phone borrows the design language of the popular V-Series. That particular starlight black is gorgeous on the eyes and the shell does an exceptional job of repelling fingerprint smudges too.
The company also offers T1 another visually appealing rainbow color.
The device features flat edge rails around the device with curved corners. It provides a solid feel when holding the device and also feels secure and less chance of my grip slipping on it.
On the front, it sports a 6.58-inch Full HD+ (2408×1080p) LCD display and supports 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate, which comes in handy when you play games. The screen is bright enough to display content outdoors.
Additionally, the device has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, which doubles as a power button. The biometric sensor has worked well so far.
It has a triple camera module – main depth 50MP (f/1.8) + 2MP (f/2.4) + macro 2MP (f/2.4) with LED flash, super night mode. Up front, it houses a 16MP snapper (f/2.).
The new Vivo phone takes good pictures in afternoon sunlight. Even close-ups are crisp and clear. But, need to know how it performs in low light conditions.
The Vivo T1 houses an 8nm-class Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 octa-core processor with Adreno 619L GPU, backed by 4GB/6GB/8GB LPDDR4x RAM with 128GB UFS 2.2 storage (expandable up to 1TB).
Like any other new phone, the T1 series also runs smoothly, but we have to see how the device performs when put to its paces playing graphics-heavy games. The new handset runs Android 11 Funtouch OS v12.
Moreover, Vivo T1 comes with a 5000mAh battery. That’s more than enough to hold the phone up during extreme use, but we need to know how it will perform in practice. The retail box of the device also comes with an 18W charger.
As for 5G, it supports two bands: n77/n78. Hopefully, when the infrastructure is ready in India, Vivo T1 users will be able to enjoy high-speed mobile internet.
