International tech brand vivo has just launched a new and affordable 5G Android smartphone in the Philippines that's great for mobile gamers who want a new handset with elevated features.

With an official suggested retail price of PHP 16,999, vivo T1 5G allows users to enjoy the benefits of the latest generation in mobile broadband standards, which is 5G, all while having an attractive design, good imaging performance, and a good set of internal hardware that enable stellar gaming performance.

On the outside, one of the most attractive features of vivo T1 5G would have to be its design identity.

According to vivo, the phone's polycarbonate shell comes with a super-strong nano-coating to make it more resilient against the knocks and bumps of daily use. It also has an innovative glitter AG texture that's skin-friendly and smooth all while allowing for a more comfortable grip.

As a gaming-centric design, this handset also comes with a Turbo Engine Design with 3D curves that fit perfectly in the hand. Additionally, the camera module at the back has two prominent accents for the cameras that look like powerful airplane engines.

vivo T1 5G flaunts a large, bright, and brilliant 6.44-inch display with FullHD+ 1080 x 2404 pixels resolution and a tear-drop notch housing the front-facing camera.

This AMOLED display panel allows the phone to be slimmer and lighter as it doesn't require back illumination. On top of that, it also supports up to 90Hz Refresh Rate which gives you smoother screen transitions and more fluid interface touch response.

Mobile Photography Features

This handset comes with three cameras at the back giving aspiring mobile photographers good flexibility for snapping images.

The most powerful of the bunch is the 64 MegaPixel f/1.79 shooter that's the most useful for everyday point and shoot photography. It also has the best low-light performance of the trio not just because of its hardware specifications but also because of vivo's Super Night Mode software enhancement that helps deliver bright and vibrant images even in low-light scenarios.

The second one is an 8 MegaPixel camera with a 117-degrees ultra-wide angle lens. You can use this for landscape and architectural photography as well as for taking fun group photos as shown in the image above.

Finally, the third shooter is a 2 MegaPixel macro cam that's ideal for taking photos of small objects like insects or even tiny details on larger subjects.

For those who love taking selfies, vivo T1 5G has a 16 MegaPixel front-facing camera housed in the notch above the display. Powered by vivo's own beautification software, this cam delivers self-portraits that are ready for sharing on social media.

Video Recording

Good for aspiring vloggers, Youtubers, and TikTokers, vivo T1 5G can record clear FullHD videos using both the front-facing and main rear cameras.

One neat software feature for vloggers is the Dual-View Video mode that lets you record clips using both the front and back cameras at the same time, which is great for story-telling.

Made for Gamers

If there's one area where vivo T1 5G is expected to deliver well, it's definitely when it comes to gaming performance. I mean, young mobile gamers who want a device with other improved features are essentially the target market of the new T Series from the company.

The good gaming capabilities of this handset are enabled by the new 6nm 2.4GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm SM7325 Snapdragon 778G 5G processor which is one of the best in its price bracket currently as well as the Adreno 642L GPU. The CPU is complemented by 8GB of RAM and 128GB of non-expandable internal storage.

On top of all that, vivo T1 5G even features Z-Axis Linear Motor and 4G Gaming Vibrations that deliver faster response time even for resource-intensive titles as well as a more engaging and enjoyable overall gaming experience.

Battery Life and Fast Charging

vivo T1 5G is powered by a high-capacity 4,700 mAh Li-Po battery that should easily ensure a whole day of uptime even for heavy gamers and power users.

For those who will push the pack to its limits with extended gameplay, charging the device will be snappy, thanks to the handset's 66W Fast Charging innovation.

Price and Availability

Again, vivo T1 5G dons an SRP of PHP 16,999 and it comes in two eye-catching colorways, namely, Turbo Cyan and Turbo Black.

vivo Philippines is currently running multiple discount promos for this model. The most generous would have to be PHP 1,000 price cut for those who will purchase the handset via the company's consumer website.

Fans who will buy the handset via vivo's official Lazada and Shopee online stores until May 29, 2022 can grab it for just PHP 16,147 and will get free Baseus Earphones and Powerbank. The freebies, however, are limited and buyers will have to pay PHP 2,000 downpayment.
