Here is the Vivo X80 Pro, Vivo’s first ultra premium flagship in France. The brand has put the package on the photo part for a release scheduled for the end of June.
As long as you pay more than 1000 euros for a smartphone, it still has to offer the little extra detail that the others don’t have. This is the perilous exercise that all so-called “ultra-premium” phones must engage in if they want to convince. Vivo having settled in France for a short time (end of 2020), the Chinese brand did not immediately embark on this adventure. Until now with the Vivo X80 Pro, a flagship in every sense of the word.
The technical sheet of the phone has nothing to envy to its competitors. It puts, as is customary in this price range, a very strong emphasis on the photo part. On its prominent photo block, there are no less than four over-equipped photo modules:
- A main sensor of 50 megapixels with a correct size of 1/1.31 inch (or 1.2 μm per photosite), aperture F1.57;
- A module dedicated to ultra-wide-angle, with a 48-megapixel IMX 595 sensor, F/2.2 aperture;
- An X2 module dedicated to portraits, with 12-megapixel IMX 663 sensor, F/1.85 aperture. This module benefits;
- An X5 module with 8 megapixel sensor, F/3.4 aperture.
All the little ones next door in photo
To better serve photo quality, Vivo has enhanced its phone with a chip dedicated to this use, the Vivo V1+ chip, which is supposed to greatly improve energy consumption, fluidity, but also the capture of brightness, colorimetry or even definition.
The main sensor is helped by a two-axis stabilizer and software stabilization and a ZEISS T * coating supposed to better absorb reflections. Numerous photo and video modes complement all this, such as various Zeiss filters for portraits, high-end video stabilization or even a real night mode for shots taken in total darkness. In short, no more tokens, you have probably understood, Vivo wanted to put the package on the photo part.
The other originality of the phone lies in its large ultrasonic 3D fingerprint sensor. This allows you to record your fingerprint all at once.
The complete technical sheet
The rest of the phone is far from uninteresting. It comes with FuntouchOS 12 (based on Android 12) and Vivo promises three years of Android updates and at least three years of security patches. This chip is one of the most powerful on the market, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and 12 GB of LPDDR 5 RAM, as well as 265 GB of UFS 3.1 storage. The modem gives him the right to a 5G connection, wi-fi or even Bluetooth 5.2.
Its design with a very rectangular profile, not unlike a certain S22 Ultra, still manages to offer many roundings on the edges. The back of the phone features matt AG fluorite glass while the very square photo block features a mirror effect, making it susceptible to fingerprints. The phone is protected by an IP 68 certification, and incorporates two stereo speakers.
On the front, you’ll find a 6.78-inch QHD+ display, with a screen-to-body ratio of 92.22%. The 4700 mAh battery is served by 80W wired and 50W wireless fast charging.
