Vivo officially teased its upcoming smartphone with 5G network support in a video. This will be called the Vivo x30. The device is teased to be released in December and is now confirming some of its specs though various video teasers. The smartphone is expected to be powered by the latest processing chip by Samsung - Exynos 980 5G chipset. Vivo's big phone seems to have a long-range zoom camera. The company released two official teasers of the phone. A still in the video teases a focal range of 16mm to 135mm, as well as a variable aperture range of f/1.8 to f/3.0. The variable aperture values belong to the zoom lens. Vivo called the lens "super-telephoto" and the second teaser for the phone confirms its 60x zoom capabilities.
The video is in the Chinese language. It says, "Zoom in, then zoom in again. 60x super zoom, more than you can see". This would be a periscope-style camera that Huawei P30 Pro and Oppo Reno 10x zoom edition have already used. We don't know how the camera will be different from Huawei and Oppo but so far, this will be the highest zoom capabilities we have seen on a phone so far. The P30 Pro offers 50x digital zoom, while the Oppo Reno 10x goes up to 60x digital zoom. There is no official word on the optical or hybrid zoom values of the Vivo X30 yet, but it is likely 60x digital zoom as well.
The video shows a glimpse of the back of the phone that shows a stacked triple camera array and a separate rectangular camera, possibly the zoom camera on the side. The smartphone was previously tipped to sport a 64MP + 8MP + 13MP + 2MP quad camera setup. There's a Pro version also expected, with a 60MP + 13MP + 13MP +12MP configuration. Other noteworthy specs expected from Vivo's X30 series phones include 90Hz display, 44W flash charge, and a 32MP selfie shooter.
