When Samsung unveiled the Exynos 1080 processor a few days ago, the company had mentioned that the first phones using the new chipset would be from Vivo. The Chinese smartphone brand has now unveiled two new smartphones powered by the Exynos 1080: Vivo X60 and Vivo X60 Pro. Both devices are proper flagships, featuring high-end specs, design, and cameras.
The Vivo X60 and the Vivo X60 Pro+ feature 6.56-inch Super AMOLED (E3) screens with Full HD+ resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+, an in-display fingerprint reader, and a center-aligned punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. Both phones run Android 11-based OriginOS and are equipped with the Exynos 1080 processor, 8GB/12GB LPDDR4X RAM, and 128GB/256GB UFS 3.1 storage. The Vivo X60 is powered by a 4,300mAh battery, while the Vivo X60 Pro uses a 4,200mAh battery. They are compatible with 33W fast charging.
Vivo’s new flagship phones feature a 48MP wide-angle camera (Sony IMX598) with gimbal OIS and an F1.5 aperture, a 13MP ultrawide camera with autofocus, a 13MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom, and a 32MP selfie camera. The Vivo X60 Pro has an additional 8MP telephoto camera with a 5x optical zoom periscope lens. Both phones can record 4K 60fps videos using their rear cameras. Needless to say, they both are 5G compatible. The Vivo X60’s price starts from $535, while the Vivo X60 Pro is priced at $688.
On paper, both Vivo phones seem pretty amazing. It would be pretty great if Samsung can make mid-range and affordable high-end phones powered by the Exynos 1080 SoC. Perhaps the Galaxy A92, Galaxy Note 20 Lite, and the Galaxy S21 FE?
