Today, VIVO released its first government and enterprise 5G business smartphone, namely the VIVO G1. Its price starts from 3498 yuan ($494).


As the first product of VIVO G series, the VIVO G1 is equipped with a deeply customized dual-domain system that can isolate work and personal life into two operating spaces. At the same time, the VIVO G1 also supports multi-function NFC, card identification system, high-definition quad-camera imaging system, voice assistant, and other functions.


The VIVO G1 features the Exynos 980 5G chip. The latter supports NSA & SA two networking methods. The theoretical peak download speed can be up to 3.55Gbps. Also, it supports data network acceleration technology and 5G anti-disruption and other functions.

Apart from this, the VIVO G1 uses a combination of 8GB + 128GB of memory and has a built-in 4500mAh large battery capacity.


Two Spaces

The biggest difference between VIVO G1 and a traditional smartphone is that it is equipped with a dual-domain system. This design can divide the system into isolated ‘personal domain’ and ‘work domain’. So we can say it’s one smartphone with two operating spaces / two environments. The application content and information are all operated independently.

No personal information files are stored in the work domain system of the VIVO G1. And applications cannot be installed at will. The business space user can uniformly control software installation, upgrade, and in-depth control the work domain. He can also disable Wi-Fi Internet access, Bluetooth, transfer files via USB and other operations to ensure the confidentiality of information. The life domain system focuses on personal life experience. You can freely install and uninstall software, which is no different from ordinary smartphones.

The two systems of the G1 are isolated from each other. But you can switch between two domains with one click. And it supports a variety of switching methods customized according to user scenarios.


The VIVO G1 has also been specially optimized for government and enterprise users. It comes with multi-functional NFC to adapt to industry applications. It can provide users with industry application capabilities such as card identification, eID, consumer payment, and tag reading.

In addition, the card identification function implemented through NFC also makes the G1 a mobile reading device that can be used to read the user’s ID card, work permit, etc. The VIVO G1 can also use NFC as an access control card. So it can be used for employees going to and from work, entering and leaving the factory area, and daily attendance.


In terms of camera configuration, the VIVO G1 uses a combination of 48-megapixel ultra-clear main sensor, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel depth-of-field blur lens, and a 2-megapixel macro lens.

Based on the front-end 32-megapixel camera, the VIVO G1 supports face recognition technology as well as face unlocking. But it also supports screen fingerprint unlocking technology.


Also, the phone supports 4K high-definition video recording as well as dual (front and rear) EIS video recording. Interestingly, the handset supports front and rear dual-field shooting. It allows the front lens and rear main camera record and be presented in the same video at the same time.

Other features

The VIVO G1 comes with a newly upgraded Jovi intelligent voice assistant. The latter supports smart image recognition, text mode, image recognition mode, garbage classification, photo translation, search / account correction, and can also cast screens to TVs and projectors.
