vivo Smartphone Launches Y20s, Leveraging on Global Success to Take on the Kenyan Market

Nairobi, Kenya, 2nd February 2021 –The ever-evolving global smartphone brand vivo, has announced the launch of the newest entrant in the Y-Series, the vivo Y20s in Kenya.

This move comes after the brand was ranked fifth in the global smartphone market in 2020 by the International Data Corporation (IDC) with a market share of 8.6 percent and shipments exceeding 110 million devices.  Within the year, vivo was one of the three smartphone brands to maintain an increase in shipments despite the overall downturn experienced.

vivo seeks to leverage on this global success to take on the Kenyan market by unveiling sophisticated yet affordable devices for consumers.

‘’vivo’s success in the global market can be attributed to its persistent efforts to understand and tap into specific consumer behaviors. In line with its ambitions to continue its growth trajectory, vivo works relentlessly to develop stylish and dynamic products that cater to diverse consumer segments around the world. This is a reason we have the Y20s in Kenya,’’ said Mr. James Irungu, vivo Smartphone Kenya Brand and Communications Manager.
