The body of Vivo T2 5G is made of polycarbonate. The smartphone weighs 172 grams, which is 10 grams less than the Vivo T1. At the same time, its thickness is also less than the previous model, 7.8mm. The frame is flat and the edges are slightly rounded, giving a slightly better in-hand feel. The smartphone comes in two color options and the company has sent us the Nitro Blaze variant of the Vivo T2 5G for review, which comes with a glossy finish. Its special thing is that the back panel changes shades from blue to orange when light falls on it at different angles. Unique gradient pattern is given on the panel. At the same time, you also have a Velocity Wave color option, which comes in a golden shade.
The Vivo T2 5G sports a single speaker at the bottom, which is loud for a small room, but doesn’t work well in larger rooms or outdoors. Along with this, a USB Type-C port is available at the bottom and the good thing is that the phone comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. The right side of the phone includes the power and volume buttons, which are easy to reach when using it with one hand. On the top frame, there’s a hybrid-SIM slot that supports dual SIM or single SIM with expandable storage via a microSD card.
Vivo T2 5G flaunts a 6.38-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with 1080 x 2400-pixel resolution.
