In a recent online event, Vivo unveiled the new TWS Neo alongside the X50 series. It is an upgrade to Vivo TWS Earphone, that was launched last year. Let’s take a closer look at the complete specs, features, expected price in Nepal, and availability of Vivo TWS Neo.
Vivo TWS Neo Overview
Vivo TWS Neo offers nothing new to the table in terms of design. It features the same stem design that we have seen in a lot of TWS earphones since the original Airpods Pro. The earbuds are light at 4.78 grams each. Vivo has gone with “G3 continuous curves” to avoid any discomfort in the ear.
In terms of colors, the Vivo TWS Earphone Neo is available in two options – Interstellar Blue and Moonlight White.
Sound Driver and Connectivity
Vivo has included a 4th Generation chip from Qualcomm for the new TWS Neo. It comes with the same 14.2mm large drivers as its predecessor. It supports dual transmission 2.0 over Bluetooth 5.2 technology. Vivo claims that the new aptX audio codec can provide near-CD-quality and up to 1.5 times more information than the standard TWS earphones. You can toggle between three DeepX stereo sound effects for the best personal experience: Strong Bass, Clear Vocal, and Clear Treble.
For better call quality, Vivo TWS Neo has a dual microphone setup. On top of that, the company has also implemented intelligent noise reduction technology. Vivo also claims that the aerodynamic design can reduce wind noise interferences while you are running or riding.
The TWS Neo features touch control that is customizable as per your preference. At default, a single tap will pause or play music. Ending or rejecting a call will require a long tap. Slide through the stem to adjust the sound levels. You can even summon Jovi using the earphone; it is Vivo’s own digital assistant meant to compete against the likes of Google Assistant, Siri, and more.
The Vivo TWS Neo comes with a low latency mode for gamers. It can limit the latency to just 88ms, thus providing a better gaming experience. The earbuds also come with capacitive sensors that can pause the music automatically when you remove it from the ear. With the “Find Headphones” feature, you can quickly locate your headphones if you misplace it. Smart Upgrade lets the setup download the updates automatically via WiFi when it is in idle mode.
Battery and Durability
There is a 30mAh battery (minimum 25mAh) on both the earbuds. Vivo promises 5.5 hours of playback time with AAC codec and 4.2 hours backup with aptX adaptive. The charging features a 415mAh (minimum 400mAh) that can extend it up to 27 hours. The case uses a USB-Type C interface for charging.
