As evident from the reports, although Vivo’s net losses have decreased in the past two years, its overall revenue has actually doubled.

Experts suggest the company’s real strategy is long-term investment, which may take years to shows its full impact but they will surely make its position stronger in India, the world’s biggest mobile phone market. Now like Oppo’s Realme and Xiaomi’s Pocophone, Vivo is also planning to launch a new brand to drive in more online sales. The company also plans to hire more local executives to better understand the domestic mobile phone market.
