This work is carried out in the Research and Development centers of the main technology manufacturers. In this way, the Chinese company has a strong presence in the global market with a firm commitment to innovation and state-of-the-art technology in its devices.

“Live we constantly listen to our users and we are committed to the development of new and better functions, which is why we already have 10 R&D Centers around the world. The contributions developed in the Centers are planned to reach the final products in a period of approximately 2 years. That means we are currently working on the next generation of smartphones, which in 48 months could be changing the way people connect and communicate with what matters most.” Leo Long, CEO of vivo Colombia.

“In the case of vivo, for a prototype to evolve into a final product, it must be compatible with the equipment that is manufactured in China, and the distance that there is, for example, between the R&D Center in Japan and the factories. Similarly, technology standards and hardware specifications vary from country to country, so specialists need to find local resources that allow them to do their jobs efficiently,” says Long.

The Chinese firm’s R&D centers provide researchers with the technological tools they need to achieve their goals.

This means that if a specialist runs out of computer resources during the survey and needs a new one, this will be replaced immediately so that the project can continue, since the results have been and will always have priority.

Finally, the 12,000 professionals around the world in the company’s R&D centers are free to work with all their creativity, as long as they follow the guidelines of each project. This freedom allows them to “think outside the box”, creating the next technological tool that will change the industry.
