Vivo’s flagship X-line has come to represent some of the best cameras on any smartphone, and it looks like this on the new 2022 Vivo X80.
The company introduced the X80 and X80 Pro in China later this year with the more powerful X80 Pro +.
When will the Vivo X80 be released worldwide?
Vivo introduced the X80 and X80 Pro for the first time on April 25 in China. Both phones are for sale
Vivo confirmed plans to launch phones globally on May 8; We will learn at least some of the other countries that will receive the latest Vivo flagships and how much they will cost outside of China. The Vivo X70 series has reached India and other Asian markets, but although the previous X60 phones were in North America, they were not fully sold in Europe.
There’s another phone to take into account that Vivo is using the phone release in China to introduce the third phone in the series: the X80 Pro + There’s some time for this model, but it will go on sale in the third quarter – under a different name. it is convincing that it will only remain in China
It’s a bit surprising to see the X80 series in such a short time, not only because the series doesn’t fit into the regular release period, but also because it all happened in early April, a few weeks after the company introduced the X Fold X Note and Pad in China.
We talked about the Vivo X80 series as part of our weekly Fast Charge podcast that you can watch here.
How much is the Vivo X80?
The only prices we currently have are the Chinese prices for the X80 and X80 Pro, which we have converted to other global currencies.
- X80: from ¥3,699 (about £445/$560/€525/₹43,000)
- X80 Pro: from ¥5,499 (about £660/$840/€780/₹64,000)
As always, these currency conversions are approximate, and any international prices are likely to be actually higher.
Of course, we don’t know yet how much the Pro + will cost. This is a price increase compared to the X70 series, so we doubt it will be close to the mark here.
What are the features of the Vivo X80?
With at least two phone officials, we know all about the X80 and X80 Pro in the Chinese versions, and thanks to the leaks, we think we’ve got some idea of what to expect from the Pro + when it launches. one of the three phones is formed.
The Vivo X80 is the cheapest phone in the series, but it’s no slouch.
Available in three colors: black-orange and green (although it looks pretty turquoise to us).
The X80 is equipped with an advanced MediaTek Dimensity 9000 chipset, 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 128GB of 256GB or 512GB of memory.
The display has a 6.78-inch FHD + OLED curved display with a refresh rate of 120Hz and a 100% DCI-P3 color gamut, so it should look very smooth.
Power comes from a 4500 mAh battery with 80 W wired charging, but no wireless charging support
As for the camera, it has a triple lens structure on the back. All three are equipped with a glare-reducing Zeiss T * lens.
This camera is accompanied by a 2x zoom telephoto / portrait camera with f/1.98 aperture using 12Mp Sony IMX663 1/2 inch sensor packaging gimbal style stabilization. Finally, the Sony IMX663 has an 12Mp ultra wide angle with sensor and f / 2.0 aperture.
As for the front, you get a 32Mp 1 / 2.8-inch sensor and a selfie camera with f / 2.5 lens aperture.
In China, the phone is powered by Android 12, which runs Vivo’s OriginOS Ocean, but the international version is more likely to use the company’s FuntouchOS skin.
Vivo X80 Pro
The X80 Pro is very similar to the X80, but with a few major improvements
The design is particularly similar with the same color and finish options. In fact, the only real difference is that the camera module is slightly larger to accommodate an additional lens under the main camera ring.
There is another change in the installation, although it is not visible, the X80 Pro has an IP68 rating, which means that it is as safe as phones when it comes to protection from water and dust.
If you can buy the X80 Pro internally with Dimensity 9000, you can also get a different version with Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 inside. cut the whole world
RAM and storage options are similar with 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 256GB or 512GB of memory.
The screen is the same size as the X80 6.78 inches, but has been upgraded to LTPO 2.0 AMOLED, which means it can reduce the refresh rate to 1Hz to save energy and has a higher QHD + resolution.
It also includes another upgrade, the X80’s fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the screen, while the X80 Pro upgrades to an ultrasound sensor with a larger detection area, making it easier to tap at the correct point on the screen to save printing.
The battery is larger at 4700 mAh with one touch, and although the wired charge is the same at 80 W, you get 50 W wireless charging with reverse charging support.
The main camera, though completely different, is 50Mp, but uses a 1/1.3-inch Samsung ISOCELL GNV sensor with OIS in bright f/1.57 aperture.
The 2x zoom camera is the same as the X80, but with a slightly wider f/1.85 aperture, but the f/3.4 aperture also has a 5x zoom periscope camera with an 8Mp optically stabilized sensor.
Finally, the 48Mp Sony IMX598 sensor with f/2.2 aperture is the same despite the 32Mp hole in f/2.5.
Like the X80, the Pro also comes with Android 12 and OriginOS Ocean
Vivo X80 Pro+
It looks like the X80 Pro + will offer a few key upgrades from the regular Pro, but we don’t know what it is.
Although we saw a few leaks for the Pro + before the initial presentation, it turned out that some of them were for the Pro, and as a result left it unclear, and this may still apply to the upcoming phone.
Most likely, the camera will receive most of the improvements, and an old leak predicts that it will use the 50Mp Samsung GN1 sensor at a wider f/1.3 aperture. current X80 phones
As more details become available, we will of course update this article, so check back periodically to see what we find.
