The lineup is a range of upper-midrange phones that “promises multidimensional performance with turbo speed … at an affordable price tag.” Specifically, the specs are said to be tailored to elevate a user’s mobile-gaming experience.

So which member or members of the series are launching here first? Vivo didn’t mention any models in the press release it sent us, but the devices in the image that it included in the announcement are the Vivo T1 5G and Vivo T1x. Plus, we at Revü discovered that the latter was already certified by the National Telecommunications Commission in April.
