Today, following the schedule, VIVO held a new product launch conference. As you guess, at the event, it released the VIVO X60 Pro+. As the name suggests, we are dealing with the much-enhanced version of the original model.
We could introduce this handset as one of those still rare smartphones powered by the Snapdragon 888 chip. But in fact, the selling point of this handset is hidden anywhere else. If you are familiar with VIVO X series handsets, that’s not difficult to guess that we are talking about the imaging system. However, let’s get acquainted with its key features alternately.
VIVO X60 Pro+ Hardware and Performance
This product uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip, LPDDR5 memory with a theoretical speed of 6400Mbps and UFS 3.1 storage with a random write speed that is increased by 14%. Thus, all the latest hardware features are in place. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chip uses 5nm process technology, Adreno 660 GPU, Kryo 680 architecture, and the third-generation X60 5G baseband. It has been upgraded in many aspects, especially in terms of AI performance, which is very helpful for the X60 Pro+ camera processing. Its Adreno 660 GPU graphics’ rendering speed is increased by 35% and energy efficiency is increased by 20%.
At the same time, the phone supports enhanced memory management function, which can coordinate RAM and ROM for coordination. Also, it applies preload 2.0 technology to improve application startup speed.
VIVO X60 Pro+ Design and Screen
On the front, the phone hosts a 6.5 6-inch pole 3D flexible screen. Its parameters are very exiting. Say, it comes with an E3 luminescent material with a peak brightness of 1300nit; it supports HDR10+, 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch response rate. The AMOLED hole-punch curved screen has an aperture of 3.96mm, a resolution of 2376×1080, a screen-to-body ratio of 92.7%. The screen contrast is as high as 6000000:1.The screen is certified by SGS Eye Care Display.
When the average color deviation of the screen is <5, the color error is difficult to detect. According to reports, the VIVO X60 Pro+’s screen is adjusted piece by piece, with an average ΔE≈0.506.
In terms of appearance, this handset still continues the X60 series design. At the same time, it offers classic orange and deep sea blue colors. Both use plain leather material.
Battery and Endurance
The handset is powered by a 4200mAh battery, which supports 55W fast charge. This is a lot better than the previous 33W.
VIVO X60 Pro+ Camera
The rear camera of the phone includes two main sensors. One of them has a 50MP resolution, while the second main lens is a 48MP ultra-wide-angle micro-cloud platform sensor.
The main camera is the Samsung GN1 CMOS, and the second camera is the Sony IMX598 sensor with an area of 1/1.3 inch and a unit pixel area of 1.2μm. In the four-in-one mode, the output resolution reaches 12.5MP, and the unit pixel area reaches 2.4μm. A said, the VIVO X60 Pro+ is the industry’s first ultra-wide-angle PTZ camera smartphone. The second main camera comes with a Zeiss T* coating. It brings better shooting effects and supports pixel shift technology.
The VIVO X60 Pro+ upgrades the image stabilization function, bringing a four-axis stabilization effect. At the same time, the X60 series also uses the VIS five-axis video stabilization technology. In fact, it is inherited from the X50 Pro. This allows users to shoot more stable and clear sports scenes.
The VIVO X60 Pro+ super night scene algorithm covers more scenes and comes with a laser focus to make night scene focus faster.
There is also black light night vision 2.0 feature. It will automatically turn on the ‘polar night’ mode in extremely dark conditions. Moreover, the AI noise reduction and algorithm optimization can take dark night photos with higher brightness and less noise. The VIVO X60 Pro+ brings the night scene mode to the ultra-wide-angle lens, which can also take better night scene pictures.
Our protagonist can shoot movie-level video with a 2.35:1 wide screen. At the same time, it has got a professional video mode. The latter allows users to freely adjust the shutter, sensitivity, white balance and other shooting parameters. In addition to these shooting functions, the VIVO X60 Pro+ also supports old photo repair function.
By the way, the main camera adopts a composite multilayer coating + nanocrystalline structure coating. Each lens has a coating on both sides, and the nanocrystalline structure coating is used on smartphones for the first time.
The rest two lenses are the 32-megapixel 2X portrait sensor and an 8-megapixel 5X periscope lens. Another 32MP sensor is on the front.
