Vivo has just formalized the X80 and X80 Pro: these are two premium smartphones that have not yet been unveiled outside of Chinese territory. They are interesting in more ways than one.
Like many Chinese manufacturers, launches are done in several stages at Vivo: a launch for the Chinese market, then launches in other regions of the world, where the products can be declined in several variants with name changes. Vivo has just unveiled its latest premium smartphones, the Chinese brand has anticipated some of the innovations to come. In total, we thus discover two smartphones: the X80 and X80 Pro.
Vivo X80 and X80 Pro: Sony or Samsung for the photo
The main novelty of the X80 is a new high-end CMOS sensor from Sony, namely theIMX866. It’s a large sensor, 1/1.5″, but only slightly larger than the one seen on the previous generation IMX766 (which was 1/1.56″). The definition has not yet been specified, the lens is here with seven elements and benefits from a Zeiss anti-reflective treatment.
The Pro version is differentiated by a main sensor designed by Samsung. This is the sensor Samsung Isocell CNG of 50 megapixels 1/1.3 inch with a lens at f/1.57, with the famous stabilization system (gimbal) that we know on the X60 Pro. In addition to this main sensor, there are 3 others: a 48 megapixel IMX598 sensor (ultra wide-angle f / 2.2), a 12 Mpx telephoto lens (f / 1.9) as well as a periscopic module (f / 3.4) which offers an optical zoom x5. We also find the same Zeiss anti-reflective treatment.
Vivo has put forward its new V1 Plus in-house chip, it is a chip dedicated to the image which exploits a new set of algorithms specially developed for sensors from Sony and Samsung.
There are two versions, one with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and the other with the Dimensity 9000. The global version will most likely be released with Qualcomm’s SoC. The Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro are equipped with a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED screen with Full HD + (Vivo X80) and Quad HD + (Vivo X80 Pro) definition with a refresh rate of 120 Hz (LTPO only on Vivo X80 Pro), an in-screen fingerprint sensor, a maximum brightness of 1300 nits and a 32-megapixel punch-hole front camera.
The X80 uses a 4,500mAh battery, 80W wired fast charging and 50W wireless charging. The X80 Pro uses a 4,700mAh battery, which is a good sight given that the screen will consume a little more.
On paper, these two smartphones adopt a particularly solid and promising camera configuration. We therefore look forward to discovering them in France, if they are ever marketed of course.
