The Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has launched its latest Snapdragon 888 smartphone that comes with an upgraded version of the gimbal stabilization system and better sensors for the cameras. The handset has been launched as a maxed-out model for the Vivo X60 series that was announced earlier this month.
Design and Display
Design-wise, the handset features a Xiaomi Mi 10T-like huge rectangular camera bump. It is built around a 6.56-inch OLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, HDR10+, a maximum brightness of 1300 nits, and 1080p resolution.
Internals and Storage
As mentioned, Vivo X60 Pro+ comes with a Snapdragon 888 SoC at the helm paired with 8 GB or 12 GB of fast LPDDR5 RAM, which can transfer data at up to 6,400 Mbps and 128 or 256 GB UFS 3.1 storage.
It runs Android 11 with the OriginOS 1.0 on top. For now, Vivo has not succumbed to the trend of shipping flagship phones without chargers so the handset comes with a charger, cable, USB-C headset, and a USB-C to 3.5 mm adapter in the box as well as a clear protective case.
The smartphone comes with a monstrous new camera setup. Its main module is built around a large 1/1.3” 50 MP ISOCELL GN1 with classic OIS instead of a gimbal. The phone’s super night mode is backed by this sensor. According to the company, it can work at just 0.01 lux that improves light sensitivity by 38.8%, and focus accuracy by 22% compared to the previous generation.
The main sensor is complemented by a 48 MP ultrawide module that can correct ±3° of movement, around three times what a typical OIS system can manage, followed by an 8 MP periscope lens and a 32 MP telephoto sensor. For selfies, it comes with a 32 MP sensor.
Battery and Pricing
One of the not very impressive features of this handset is its 4200 mAh battery with 55W fast charging. Although the rapid charging will make up for the rather “small” battery cell, it will not work great at higher refresh rates since they hog the battery.
The phone is currently available for sale at a starting price of $775.
