Vivo has introduced Vivo X60 Pro+ as its newest Android flagship in China. It is part of the recently released X60 lineup but is powered by a Qualcomm processor. Both of the standard Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro were made official with Samsung's Exynos 1080 processor last month. The new phone also packs significant camera improvements with gimbal-like stabilization.
The Vivo X60 Pro+ sports a 6.56-inch Full HD+ (2376 x 1080 pixels) AMOLED display with a centered punch-hole. It supports a high refresh rate of 120Hz, a touch sampling rate of 240Hz, a peak brightness of 1,300 nits, and compatibility with both HDR10 and HDR10+ standards. The punch-hole on the phone houses a 32-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.45 aperture.
Under the hood, the flagship is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor. There are two configuration variants featuring 8GB of RAM with 128GB onboard storage and 12GB of RAM with 256GB onboard storage. The good thing is that Vivo has made use of LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage to deliver high-speed performance.
Here are the quad-camera setup technical details:
- 48-megapixel pan-tilt Sony IMX598 sensor with f.2.2 aperture, 114-degree ultra-wide-angle sensor, 14mm focal length, and 4-axis OIS with gimbal stabilization
- 50-megapixel Samsung GN1 sensor with f/1.57 aperture and 1/1.3” sensor size
- 32-megapixel portrait sensor with f/2.08 aperture and 50mm focal length
- 8-megapixel periscope sensor with f/3.4 aperture, 5X optical zoom, 60X Super Zoom, and OIS
The team has collaborated with ZEISS for the optics whose logo is also present on the back. Both sides of the camera lens have a T* anti-reflective coating. It also has a nano-crystalline structure which is claimed to be a first for smartphones.
The whole package is powered by a 4,200mAh battery and is supported by 55W fast charging. The phone has a USB Type-C port with no 3.5mm headphone jack support. However, the retail package comes with a USB Type-C to 3.5mm dongle. Other important features include an in-display fingerprint scanner, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, face unlock, SBC, AAC, aptX HD, and LDAC. It will be booting OriginOS 1.0 based on Android 11 out of the box.
As for the pricing, the Vivo X60 Pro+ will cost you CNY 4,999 (about $772) and CNY 5,999 (about $926) for the 8GB/128GB and 12GB/256GB configuration variants respectively. The flagship will be available for pre-orders in China until January 30th.
