After launching its X60 series of phones in China, Vivo is now all set to bring the flagship series to Indian shores. The phone maker had launched three new phones under the line-up in its home country. And now, our sources close to the company have confirmed Vivo’s plans of launching the three devices, X60, X60 Pro and X60 Pro+ in India before the end of this month.
But that’s not all. We have also received exclusive information about the core hardware of the Indian models of the X60 series phones. Our source has confirmed the X60, X60 Pro and the X60 Pro+ will all be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon chipsets — instead of featuring a mix of Exynos and Qualcomm chips as seen in China.
What’s inside the X60 series?
As per our source, Vivo plans to equip the X60 and X60 Pro with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset. This recently launched chip is an enhanced version of the Snapdragon 865 SoC. Based on 7nm process technology, this chip comes with a Kryo 385 CPU and has a tri-cluster architecture. As such, the chipset gets a prime Cortex-A77 core running at 3.2GHz, sat next to three Cortex-A77 cores running at 2.4GHz and four remaining cores of Cortex-A55 at 1.8GHz. Graphics on this chip is handled by the Adreno 650 GPU which is paired with Snapdragon Elite Gaming technology and includes support for updatable GPU drivers.
As for the X60 Pro+, Vivo will equip the device with a Snapdragon 888 SoC — the most powerful Qualcomm SoC available at the moment. This chipset has already been used on a number of flagships this year and promises flawless performance for all tasks, including gaming, photography, and multitasking.
Vivo X60 series: Expected specifications
Apart from the chipsets, we don’t have any other confirmed information about the Indian models of the X60 series phones. However, we expect them to feature similar specs to what’s available on the models launched in China.
As such, the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro will likely flaunt 6.56-inch Full HD+ (2376 x 1080 pixels) resolution displays that use an AMOLED panel with a 120Hz high refresh rate and offer HDR10+ playback certification. Paired with the above-mentioned chipsets could be up to 12GB of RAM on the phones.
The two phones will only differ when it comes to the cameras, with the Vivo X60 Pro expected to come with a quad-camera set-up on the back consists of a primary 48MP Sony IMX598 image sensor with an f/1.48 aperture and 4-axis optical image stabilization. The secondary lens could be a 13MP secondary ultra-wide-angle camera with a 120-degree field of view followed by a 13MP portrait camera and an 8MP periscope telephoto lens offering 5X optical zoom and up to 60X digital zoom. The Vivo X60 is also expected to feature a similar camera set-up, save for the telephoto camera.
As for the X60 Pro+, it should also feature the same display as on the other two X60 series phones. There will also be up to 12GB of RAM on this phone. Again, the major point of differentiation between the X60 Pro+ and the other two phones will be the cameras, with the X60 Pro+ flaunting a quad-camera setup that has been designed in collaboration with Zeiss optics. The primary lens here will likely be a 50MP primary camera with an f/1.6 aperture and OIS support followed by a 48MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 114-degree field-of-view and gimbal stabilization. There may also be an 8MP periscope telephoto camera offering up to 5x optical zoom and a 32MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom.
