The tablet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor with up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage and runs on Android 13 with vivo’s OriginOS 3 skin on top.

It also supports stylus input via the vivo Pencil2, which is sold separately. The tablet has an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera for video calls and selfies. The battery capacity is 8,500mAh and supports 44W fast charging.

The vivo Pad Air comes in three colors: Brave Powder, Free Blue, and Easy Silver. The tablet is already on sale in China, with prices starting from CNY 1,799 (around PHP 13,900 or USD 247) for the 8GB+128GB model and going up to CNY 2,599 (around PHP 20,100 or USD 357) for the 12GB+512GB model.
