Some time ago, Vivo announced its X60 series in China, and today these VIVO X60 series have gone global. Although, this is not the same X60 series as China, as some specifications and features are totally different and there was no X60 Pro+ in China’s X60 series lineup.
The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro global versions are quite identical to each other, with each offering a 6.56-inch FHD+ E3 AMOLED screen, where the Pro’s screen is curved and the X60’s screen is flat. These support a 120Hz refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and it is HDR10+ certified.
During the announcement, VIVO mentioned that the X60 series features a two-tone gradient design and satin AG technology that not only offers smoothness and exquisiteness but also visually more advanced, almost completely free of fingerprints.
The company went ahead to confirm that the Vivo X60 is 7.36mm thick and the X60 Pro is 7.59mm thick, making it Vivo’s thinnest phone with a 3D curved screen. The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro come in Midnight Black and Shimmer Blue color options.
Inside the punch-hole camera cutout is a single 32-megapixels front-facing camera with an f/2.45 aperture. It also supports an in-display fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C Audio, 5G SA/ NSA, Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.1, and GPS (L1+L5 Dual Band) + GLONASS.
Both are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 7nm with up to 3.2GHz Octa-core processor count, Adreno 650 GPU, and are available in 12GB of RAM with 256GB internal storage. These runs on Android 11 with Funtouch OS 11.1 OS and support Dual SIM, nano + nano.
The company swapped out the Exynos 1080 chipset for a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, which took away the periscope lens. The Vivo X60 Pro comes with a gimbal system that provides improved stability over typical OIS available on the X60.
With the gimbal system, the PRO is now the first-pixel shift technology on a smartphone. Thereby, improving the per-pixel detail and the color accuracy of images. Both use ZEISS-branded lenses.
Although, you still get the main Sony IMX598 48-megapixels sensor with f/1.48 lens, LED flash, supported by 13-megapixels 120° ultra-wide lens with 2.5cm macro, f/2.2, and 13-megapixels 50mm portrait camera.
Vivo also mentioned that these X60 series reproduce the intricacies of Biotar lenses, which include the legendary central resolution and the rotation bokeh of Biotar and the X60 Pro doesn’t have a telephoto camera like the first series.
These phones come with a Hi-Res Audio certificate with a single speaker, and it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack, which means you will require USB-C to 3.5mm adapter or a Bluetooth headset. With the HDR10+ certification, users can easily play HDR content from Netflix.
Vivo X60 comes with a 4300mAh battery and 4200mAh on the Vivo X60 Pro, both arrive with support for a 33W fast charging through a power adapter, the USB-C port is wired for 2.0 speeds.
The Vivo X60 and X60 Pro will start at 2,699 Malaysian Ringgit ($657) and 3299 Malaysian Ringgit ($657) for the single 12GB RAM with 256GB storage.
Vivo did not provide adequate and complete information on the availability, but since it did launch in Malaysia, this version will go on sale pre-order in Malaysia starting from March 22nd till March 26th with several launch offers.
