vivo today announced its new flagship series, the X70, which consists of the standard X70, X70 Pro and X70 Pro + models. The successor to the X60 series offers high-end specifications, including Snapdragon 888 + / Dimensity 1200, AMOLED displays and a camera system in collaboration with ZEISS.
vivo X70 Pro +
X70 Pro + is the company’s top-end smartphone with all the flagship features you can imagine – Snapdragon 888+, 120Hz 6.783 inch 1440p OLED screen with 300Hz touch sample rate, Vivo specialty V1 imaging chip, IP68 dust and water resistance, 55 W fast wired FlashCharge and wireless charging with 50 W – everything is there. vivo says the X70 Pro + comes with LPDDR5 RAM, although it didn’t specify how much memory it has.
There’s something really interesting on the back. The Vivo X70 Pro + comes with four cameras on the back, all of which have optical image stabilization (OIS), in addition to Zeiss optics and Zeiss T * lens coating. The main sensor is 50 MP, the high-end Samsung GN1 sensor, while the ultra-wide angle lens is 48 MP with an aperture of f / 2.2. The rest are the 12MP f / 1.6 portrait camera with the much newer Sony IMX663 and an 8MP f / 3.4 which is a periscopic camera with 5x zoom.
The X70 Pro + also includes vivo’s recently announced V1 imaging chip for better noise reduction when recording video in low light and more efficient motion smoothing for video playback and gaming.
X70 and X70 Pro
The X70 and X70 Pro are Vivos smartphones that aren’t quite as flagship as they are, but still have decent specs. Both models are powered by MediaTek’s Dimensity 1200 instead of the Snapdragon 888+ in the top-end X70 Pro +. The screens are also smaller at 6.56 inches and offer the option of achieving a refresh rate of 120 Hz. You have 44 W FlashCharge, but unfortunately no wireless charging.
The cameras are fewer too, with the standard X70 having a triple camera setup (40MP, 12MP, 12MP) while the X70 Pro has a quad camera setup (50MP, 12MP, 12MP, 8MP). Vivo says they have an “Ultra-Sensing Gimbal Camera coupled with Gimbal Stabilization 3.0 technology,” but no other features of the cameras have been revealed.
Vivo has not released full pricing and availability information, but the company says it will be “gradually rolling out into markets like India, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates” starting today.
