Vivo today officially revealed the announcement date for its flagship X80 line of smartphones. The new products will debut on April 25. The series is expected to feature three models – the base X80, the mid-range X80 Pro and the top-of-the-line X80 Pro+.
Vivo is focusing on the X80 camera – it was developed in collaboration with Zeiss, and it uses Zeiss Vario-Tessar optics. Quality lenses are complemented by quality sensors. The main sensor for the Vivo X80 is expected to be the Sony IMX866, an improved version of the 50-megapixel IMX766 sensor now used in many flagships.
And in the Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 Pro+, the main sensor will be the Samsung GNV, an improved version of the 50-megapixel Samsung GN1. Also assigned to the main camera system of the Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 Pro+ are Sony IMX598 (48MP, with an ultra-wide-angle lens), Sony IMX663 (12MP, with a portrait lens) and an 8MP periscope module with 5x optical zoom.
According to preliminary reports, the Vivo X80 will be based on the Dimensity 9000 SoC, while the Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 Pro+ will get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The smartphones will also use a proprietary V1+ image processor, which should significantly improve shooting quality, especially in low-light conditions.
