Vivo’s most powerful and feature-packed smartphones to date have been announced. The Vivo X80 series comes out in two forms: the vanilla X80 and the X80 Pro. A Pro Plus version also exists, but we’ll not see that until later this year.

First, let’s talk about the Vivo X80 Pro, which will be powered by the bests from Qualcomm and MediaTek: the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Dimensity 9000 processors. Which version will be available in China and the global market is yet to be known.

Everything else about this phone screams high-end. There’s the large 6.78-inch screen with a pixel-dense QHD+ resolution and uses an E5 LTPO 2.0 AMOLED panel from Samsung. It also comes with a variable refresh rate that can go from 1Hz to 120Hz.

The X80 Pro is also one of the first from Vivo to come with an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner instead of the usual in-display one.

Like its predecessors, the X80 series has a killer set of cameras, especially the Pro model. This one boasts a special 50-megapixel ISOCELL GNV sensor. It’s rigged with optical image stabilization, a bright f/1.57 aperture, and Pixel Shift technology.

Vivo’s gimbal-like OIS is still here for the 12-megapixel 2x zoom lens for portraits. Another optically-stabilized camera is the 5x telephoto shooter, while the ultra-wide lens gets a 48-megapixel sensor from Sony. Of course, all cameras will come with ZEISS T* coating.

The battery, at 4,700mAh, is not the beefiest, but still one of the biggest on a sleek flagship smartphone. It comes with an 80W wired and 50W wireless charging support.

To keep it cool, the X80 Pro comes with a 27-layer cooling system. It also has an IP68 certification for being dust and waterproof.

The Vivo X80, despite a couple of omitted features, is still a nice compromise. It’s still powered by a Dimensity 9000 CPU, but no Qualcomm option.

It also has a downgraded Samsung E5 AMOLED screen without the LTPO 2.0, a 50-megapixel IMX866 camera instead, no 5x zoom, and a lower-resolution 12-megapixel ultra-wide.

The device also comes with a smaller 4,500mAh battery without wireless charging, has a standard in-display fingerprint scanner, and has no IP68 protection.

Since they are coming out of China, both models will ship with Android 12-based OriginOS Ocean.
