Vivo unveiled this Tuesday in China its new high-end smartphones, the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro. On the program, some differences between the two versions, but a lot in common.
After a first one launched a few months ago, Vivo has just unveiled its second smartphone equipped with a gimbal camera, the Vivo X60. As expected, the smartphone has a lens designed in partnership with Zeiss.
Vivo may be not a very popular brand in some local markets, but it is nevertheless present in force in various parts of the world and in particular in Asia with 8% market share, in fifth place in the world tied with Oppo. This Tuesday, the manufacturer has just unveiled its new range of smartphones, the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro.
Speaking technically, The two smartphones offer similar designs with, for both models, 6.56-inch screens with Full HD+ definition, an OLED panel and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. In both cases, Vivo has also made the choice to integrate the selfie camera in a punch positioned at the top in the middle of the screen.
Differences in photo, battery and display
Unlike the Xiaomi Mi 11 5G announced yesterday, the Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro benefit from a chip designed not by Qualcomm or MediaTek, but by Samsung: the Exynos 1080. Unveiled last month, it is mainly intended for mid-range smartphones but has the advantage of being engraved in 5nm . For the photography side, Vivo’s phones are both equipped with three cameras on the back:
- 48-megapixel wide-angle gimbal camera;
- 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor;
- 13-megapixel with 2X zoom portrait module.
However, the Pro version benefits from a fourth photo module, with an 8 megapixel sensor and a 5 megapixel periscope optical zoom that can go up to a 60x digital zoom. It also benefits from a larger aperture on the main module, of f/1.48, compared to f/1.79 for the classic Vivo X60.
The differences between the two models can also be seen in the battery. The Vivo X60 is indeed equipped with a 4300 mAh battery, while the Vivo X60 Pro only has a 4200 mAh battery. Note also that while the Vivo X60’s screen is flat, the Vivo X60 Pro’s screen is curved on the sides.
