However, later in August, the vice president of the company vivo said that the company will launch the tablet in the first half of 2022, which means at any time between January and June. And while we wait for more details from Vivo about his first tablet, reliable tipster Digital Chat Station has revealed that the company will launch a tablet with a Snapdragon 870 SoC. Although it is unclear whether it refers to the first tablet or the second model of the company vivo.
