After weeks of rumors and teasers, Vivo has finally launched its first tablet—the Vivo Pad. It brings some pretty compelling hardware and is currently exclusive to China. In this article, we will go through the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Vivo Pad in Nepal.
Vivo Pad Overview:
Design and Display
The displays on the Oppo Pad and the Vivo Pad are pretty similar. Moreover, their CNC aluminum body designs share many similarities as well, which is likely because both brands fall under the BBK umbrella. Here, you get an 11″ 2.5K display with 10-bit colors and Dolby Vision support. Additionally, its 120Hz high refresh rate makes the viewing experience pretty smooth on such a large screen.
The back of the tablet sports a circular camera bump embedded in a squarish module. The tablet is 8.5mm thick but maintains a weight of 489 grams which is comparatively lesser than similarly priced tablets like the Xiaomi Pad 5. As per Vivo, it has a screen-to-body ratio of 84.46%.

Performance and Memory
Powering the Vivo Pad is the Snapdragon 870, which is quite a powerful processor. Its octa-core CPU consists of a single Kryo 585 Prime (@3.2 GHz), three Kryo 585 Gold (@2.42 GHz), and four Kryo 585 Silver (@1.8 GHz) cores, while the graphics are handled by Adreno 650.
As for memory, this tablet comes with a single 8GB LPDDR4X RAM option, but users can choose between 128GB and 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 internal storage. Note that the storage is not expandable due to the absence of an SD card slot.
Camera and Audio
Moving on, the Vivo Pad has a dual-camera setup comprising a 13MP primary sensor and an 8MP ultrawide sensor on the back. Besides, the front camera uses an 8MP sensor. Compared to the Oppo Pad which has a single rear camera, this one feels like a more premium option even though they’re similarly priced.
Moreover, the Vivo Pad is equipped with four speakers that support Dolby Atmos audio. But it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack like other tablets in this price range.
Rest of the specs
On the other hand, this tablet also supports a magnetic keyboard and a stylus which are sold separately. Vivo Pad boots “OriginOS HD”, which is a slightly modified version of OriginOS (based on Android) optimized for tablets. The company has heavily promoted the ability to cast the screen of a compatible phone on the tablet’s display as well. Finally, the Vivo Pad has an 8,040mAh battery that supports 44W fast charging.
