On December 29, Vivo will be unveiling its highly-anticipated Vivo X60 series. We believe that this will be the last smartphone launch of 2020, and we can say that it will close the year with style. Over the previous weeks, we saw extensive leaks revealing the specifications of the upcoming smartphones. Today, live images of Vivo X60 and X60 Pro surfaced on the Weibo database. It reveals the design of the handsets in all glory.
The Vivo X60 has a flat panel with a top-centered punch-hole cutout serving as a house for the selfie snapper. The Vivo X60 Pro will bring a curved display which also comes with a centrally-aligned punch-hole camera. According to leaks, both handsets come with AMOLED displays just like the devices that came before them. However, the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro come with thin bezels at the top and bottom. Moreover, both handsets will bring OriginOS software straight out of the box. That’s Vivo new software skin based on Android 11.
A powerful camera setup powered by ZEISS
The rear design is similar, but still more refined than the one found in the Vivo X50 series. The vanilla Vivo X60 has a triple rear camera setup whereas the Vivo X60 Pro boasts a Quad-Camera array. According to recent leaks, the X60 has a primary 48MP camera, a 13MP ultrawide, and a 13MP portrait lens. The setup on the X60 Pro is similar, but there is a fourth 8MP periscope zoom lens offering 5x Optical Zoom and up to 60x digital zoom.
Vivo already revealed that the camera setup on both phones is made in collaboration with ZEISS. This name is well known in the camera department, and we believe that it will add a lot of appeal to the camera-centric series. The bottom part of the handsets includes a SIM-tray, microphone, USB Type-C port, and speaker grille.
Another interesting fact is that both handsets will bring the Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset. This is a powerful Octa-Core chipset featuring the latest Cortex-A78 cores and based on the power-efficient 5nm architecture. The X60 series will be made of the first devices featuring this chipset which is set to be present in a lot of Samsung 5G devices next year.
In addition to the images, an unboxing video surfaced in Weibo. It gives us a last glimpse of the Vivo X60 Pro ahead of its release. Considering the number of leaks, we don’t expect many surprises to come on December 29.
