On October 31, China Telecom, China Mobile and China Unicom officially announced 5g package, marking 5g's official commercial use. Vivo said that it will release the Samsung platform's dual-mode 5g mobile phone by the end of this year, bringing users a more complete 5g experience and accelerating the popularization of 5g.
In September, Hu Baishan, executive vice president of vivo, said in an interview with the media, "5g really has a large number of chips. We will use the Samsung chip platform at the end of the year. "On November 7, vivo will release more information on dual-mode mobile phones cooperating with Samsung chips.
Compared with competitors, vivo has previously highlighted price competitiveness on 5g mobile phones. Vivo's first commercial 5g mobile phone iqoo Pro once refreshed the lowest price of 5g mobile phones. Recently, the price of iqoo Pro 5g version has been reduced. The cheapest 5g version has a market price of 3398, and the lowest price of 5g mobile phone has been refreshed again.
In terms of 5g package, on October 31, the three major operators have officially announced plans. It can be seen that the 5g time package setting is different from 4G time, and the pricing is based on the speed and traffic gradient. This means that, on the one hand, 5g networks and base stations are spreading, which are in the initial stage, with relatively scarce resources, and 5g user experience is guaranteed by means of price; on the other hand, for mobile phone manufacturers, different networks of NSA and SA should be considered, and 5g mobile phones in different stages should be gradually pushed out according to market demand. Before that, the 5g mobile phone of NSA network launched by vivo will continue to be used in a period of time in the future, while the introduction of NSA and SA dual-mode mobile phones will ensure the needs of different users for 5g network.
