Official Vivo X80 and X80 Pro: the excellence you can use

After many rumors and filtering, look, Vivo has unveiled the Vivo X80 and X80 Pro, and there’s something for everyone, as Qualcomm fans are served as well with the Vivo X80 Pro and its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 as Mediatek fans with Dimensity The 9000 arrives for both the Pro and Vivo X80. These are two balanced devices with state-of-the-art technology, but above all, the technology we can use is not about the technical data that we hardly take advantage of.

from Vivo X80 Pro, if in doubt about whether this series is at its best, we could start from the front, adorned with a potentially impressive 6.78-inch QHD + display with a dynamic refresh rate of 1,120 Hz. The unit itself is the Samsung E5 LTPO2 AMOLED, which should have an impressive range of colors and contrasts, 100% DCI-P3 mode and a maximum brightness of 1,500 staples, while just below is an ultrasonic biometric reader.

A chip for every taste

Inside is, as we said, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, and if performance warms up with this powerful processor, Vivo has left no credit to others and has delivered an advanced cooling solution with steam. chamber 27 floors. You have up to 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

It’s not the only interesting thing about the Vivo X80 Pro, but it’s certainly one of the most interesting, as it’s available not only with Snapdragon, but also with Mediatek’s Dimensity 9000 processor, which has proven to be very good. effective and well received. , mainly in terms of cost – effectiveness.

In both cases, you have a 47,000 mAh battery with 80 W wired charging and 50 W wireless charging. This 80 W charge can charge 50% in 11 minutes and the entire battery in 34 minutes.

magical Zeiss

Vivo has photography at the center of many of its bets, and the Vivo X80 Pro is undeniably a smartphone for photography lovers. As we’ve seen recently, getting the Zeiss name for this device was a long partnership process and technological development between vivo and Zeiss, and I’m especially curious to know what all this will bring when it comes.

In terms of hardware, the Vivo X80 Pro throws us 4 cameras, starting with the 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GNV unit, which is customized to Vivo’s specifications and is fully stabilized with Vivo technology, in front of which you need to see it work. Believe it, and with this, you can come up with Pixel Shift, a technology that uses stabilization to move the sensor and take high-resolution photos.

Stabilization is a common theme in all four cameras, as are the 2X and 5X units. In one case, we have a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 with gimbal stabilization technology, while the 5X camera has 8-megapixels. Finally, in this very complete photographic configuration, we still have the 48-megapixel Sony IMX598, which works as an ultra-wide angle.

One may wonder what the two zoom cameras are for, but the truth is that at a focal length of almost 50mm, the 12 megapixel 2X zoom unit is largely aimed at the portrait unit.

In addition to complete imaging algorithms, the new cameras benefit greatly from the Zeiss T * coating and the highly advanced features of the Vivon V1 + chip, which offer tremendous capabilities for night shooting, scene detection, noise, focus tracking and more. .

Also noteworthy is the presence of a HiFi chip in the Vivo X80 Pro, despite the lack of a 3.5mm connector. If Vivo follows tradition, it should put the USB-C converter in the box anyway.

The X80 Pro retains the same style of shade we’ve seen in recent Vivos, and offers an interesting aesthetic stance that leaves no build quality and is protected by IP68 protection.

Vivo X80: still impressive

When we switch to the Vivo X80, we can think about what Vivo has cut, and in fact it hasn’t cut much. The screen is still a 6.78-inch unit, but it is not LTPO2, although it is still an E5 unit, now with FHD + resolution. The panel covers 100% DCI-P3 color space and still offers 120 Hz in addition to 1500 nits of brightness.

Unlike the Pro, the Vivo X80 only has a Mediatek Dimensity 9000 with 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of internal storage, while the battery is slightly smaller at 4500 mAh and despite having a charge of 80 W. no It has wireless charging.

Finally, in the cameras, we have an excellent 50-megapixel Sony IMX866 sensor with OIS, as well as a 2X 12-megapixel portrait unit and a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 ultra-wide angle. As with the Pro, the front camera is a 32 megapixel unit. In any case, the cameras utilize all the know-how of Zeiss and Vivo V1 +. It should be noted that the IMX866 will be launched for the first time in the Vivo X80. It is an RGBW sensor with advanced color registration and detail thanks to an extra white pixel.

So it’s a very solid lineup and on the verge of being a high-end, although the smartphone for photography lovers is definitely a Pro.

Another difference between the X80 and the X80 Pro is that the latter is IP68 certified, the former is missing.

In China, where both devices have OriginOS, pre-orders will begin on April 29, but prices and availability in the international market are not yet known. Internationally, Vivo should choose FuntouchOS on Android 12.
