Vivo is going to launch two new smartphones in the upcoming weeks which it has already announced today in China. The series consists of Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro. These phones will be the first-ever smartphone to be powered by the Samsung Exynos 1080 5nm processing chip. The new processor is far more powerful than its predecessor. But speed isn't the only feature Vivo X60 offers. The standard Vivo X60 will have a slim design, with a new operating system, and technologically advanced cameras. From the design perspective, the phones will be the slimmest 5G smartphones in the market. The standard model is 7.36 mm thick while the pro model is at 7.59mm. Both phones use a curved glass back with a silk touch. However, the number of cameras isn't the same.
The Vivo X60 and X66 Pro both have a 5.56-inch display with a 2376x1080 resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The AMOLED display phone has a center punch hole to house the front camera. The display is HDR+ certified and has a 19.8:9 aspect ratio. According to the company, this screen is developed with Samsung and is far more clear and brighter even under strong sunlight. The phone will have 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage. But the main selling point for the phones is their cameras. Vivo has partnered with ZEISS to improve their lens technology.
The vanilla Vivo X60 has a second-generation Sony camera with standard gimbal support with a 4-axis optical image stabilization and a closed-loop motor impressive anti-shake feature. It comes along with a 13MP ultra wide-angle camera and a 13MP telephoto camera. The pro model has the same Sony IMX camera with gimbal support. The primary camera is 13MP with wide-angle camera and distortion correction features. Another camera is an 8MP periscope camera that provides 5x optical zoom and up to 60x superzoom. Both phones feature a 32MP front camera with f/2.4.
The Vivo X60 series has already been launched in its home country - China, and now Vivo is getting ready for the global launch. Vivo X60 series is going to include three devices - X60, X60 Pro, and X60 pro plus. Vivo launched X50 series in India in July last year that was a premium smartphone from the company with a focus on the photography section and sleek design. Now, the company has launched the refreshing variant of X50, probably with a few minor upgrades. The Vivo X60 is likely to be unveiled in April.
Ahead of the launch, Vivo X60 and X60 Pro were seen on a various certification websites, including India's Bureau of Indian Standards that further confirm its early launch in the Indian market. The Vivo X60 series should be released in three different models just like China. The design of Vivo X60 and X60 Pro looks similar to its predecessor that was launched previous year. It features the same gradient glass design with a rectangular housing on the rear side. However, there's a small change on the front display. The vanilla Vivo X60 gets a flat display whereas the Vivo X60 Pro will feature a curved screen.
All three devices feature a 6.53-inch FHD+ AMOLED display. The best part is that the display is specially designed for power intensive devices and takes less power when compared to other similar panels. In addition to this, the panels come with a 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ certification. The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro are powered by Samsung Exynos 1080 SoC. However, a new report suggests that these devices might ditch Exynos in favor of Qualcomm chipset. These two devices bear model numbers V2045 and V246.
Last year's Vivo X50 Pro got lots of attention because of its Gimbal camera feature that was entirely a new concept introduced in smartphones. This year, it's bringing a triple camera system including a 48-megapixel primary Sony camera sensore with four-axis optical image stabilization feature, a 13-megapixe telephoto sensor, and a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor with 120-degree FoV.
The Vivo X60 comes in three configurates - one with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage for CNY 3,498 (Rs 40000), an 8GB/256GB model for CNY 3798 (Rs 43000), and the third one has a 12GB / 256GB version for CNY 3,998 (Rs 45500). There's only one Vivo X60 Pro model, with 12GB/256GB versions priced at CNY 4,498 (Rs 51000). Finally, the Vivo X60 Pro will ship in two variants, 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB, which should be priced at Rs 56,000 and Rs 59,000, respectively.
The Vivo X50 pro is the first phone this year in the X-series after a very long time. The last phone in the X series was the Vivo X21 and it was launched two years ago in 2018. The new Vivo X50 pro aims to the people who use the mobile phone to take pictures and shot videos a lot. The phone features a stabilization technology of its kind that eliminates the need for any external gimbal to shot stable videos without any shakiness or blurriness appear due to the hand or body movement. It also improves the still photography.
The Vivo X50 Pro is a stylish phone with a pretty good build quality. It feels premium and quite sturdy while holding in the hands. Vivo X50 has opted for a curved display with thin bezels all around, which gives it an edge-to-edge display impression. At first, you might think of it as a similar design as of Samsung devices due to curved display but that's all. Vivo has adopted a thin, metallic frame for the device, which is something similar to the curved design and the curved rear glass panel. The phone looks slim and sleek. It may get cold to touch in a cold room due to its body. Vivo uses Schott's Xensation Up glass on the front and rear side of the phone to give it scratch protection. The power and volume buttons are easy to reach out to.
While the phone has curved sides, it sits well in the hands of users due to the flat top and bottom of the Vivo X50 pro. For connectivity, it uses a USB Type-C port, SIM tray, primary microphone, and speaker at the bottom side. The company has put the primary microphone close to the SIM tray which can be mistaken for the ejector sometimes. The phone is available in alpha grey color only and there is a slight shift in color when light bounces off the back panel. It has a matte, frosted finish which helps to hide any fingerprints or smudges you leave on the phone.
The Vivo X50 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor and probably the first phone to be launched in India with this processor. It supports 5G connectivity and available in 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage options. The device features a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz touch sampling rate with HDR+ certification. The phone has a quad-camera system with 48-megapixel primary camera and a gimbal stabilization feature. This feature is unique but we don't know so far that if it works or just a hype created by the company.
