Vivo Applies Trademarks for Vivo SoC

    A Weibo post by Digital Chat Station has revealed that Vivo is currently working on producing its very own chipset. The leaker posted two images that reveal Vivo applied for trademarks on “Vivo Chip” and “Vivo SoC” that date all the way back to September 2019. This means it’s very possible that Vivo may be taking the Huawei route of self-producing chipsets very soon.

    There are not any specific details with reference to Vivo’s plans for its chipset business and it’s hard to figure out exactly when Vivo plans to announce their chipsets. This is of course assuming they actually announce these chipsets, and they don’t turn out to simply be vaporware. If it does end up being true however, we aren’t too surprised that Vivo is getting into chip development.

    Following Huawei’s US predicament, Chinese manufacturers are investing more into developing local technology in an effort to reduce their reliance on foreign technology. While Huawei is big enough to survive it such a problem being dropped on them, smaller companies like Vivo would stand no chance.

    Vivo’s phones are currently powered by processors from the likes of Qualcomm, MediaTek, and even Samsung. This will probably continue to be the norm for the coming years, but with the likely addition of its own chipset. Another possibility is that Vivo’s chipsets might not be designed to be used in mobile phones, but rather for other smart devices that Vivo plans to release.
