Vivo U1 With 4,030mAh Battery & Dual Rear Camera Setup Launched

Vivo just launched its Vivo U1 with 4,030 mAh battery, a dual rear camera setup, and a 6.22-inch HD+ display in the Chinese market.

Yesterday, the Chinese phone maker Vivo just teased a new smartphone series in China, the U series, without revealing many details about the series. And now, it has just officially released the first phone in the U series, Vivo U1. Some highlights of the Vivo U1 include a display with a water-drop notch on top, a great battery, and also a dual camera setup on the rear. Unlike the recently-announced Vivo’s sub-brand, IQOO, the Vivo U1 will fall on the budget phone segment instead of the premium one.
