Almost seven months ago, Vivo introduced its Vivo X60 series in China composed of a Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and Vivo X60 Pro+. A couple of months later, the company unveiled the global counterparts of these devices. The main difference was that the Chinese had the Exynos 1080 SoC (except for the X60 Pro+) and the Global versions had the Snapdragon 870 SoC. The company also unveiled a multitude of X60 variants like the Vivo X60t. Now, it seems that the X60 series will finally be able to sleep as the company is switching its focus to the Vivo X70 series.
Today, a pair of upcoming Vivo smartphones passed through China’s 3C certification agency. Both phones were spotted with 44W charging and apparently, they do belong to the upcoming Vivo X70 lineup. As per speculation, the Vivo V2134A is the Vivo X70 Pro, while the V2130A is rumored to be the Vivo X70.
According to rumors, the Vivo X70 will bring a new 1/1.5-inch main sensor with the signature 5-axis gimbal stabilizations. Moreover, there are rumors suggesting a 120 Hz OLED display and Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 Plus on the Vivo X70 Pro and Pro+ models. The Vanilla variant will stick with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870. Apparently, there will be no Exynos variants this time around.
Vivo X70 series to debut the company’s first ISP
According to a report from Weibo, tipster Panda is Bald, the Vivo X70 series will come with a self-developed image signal processor. This ISP will be soldered onto the board as a separate chip. Together, the company will provide a new imaging algorithm. The Vivo X70 series will allow the company to provide better photos. So far, Vivo is keeping the development of its own ISP a secret. That may explain why no one is talking about it besides the bald panda. It’s not a surprise to see this coming though. The company is always trying to develop new ideas to make its devices appealing in the camera department. The source also mentions a micro pan-tilt feature and a telescopic lens for the Vivo X70 series.
In addition to the gimbal-like stabilization, the Vivo X60 series also introduced the company’s partnership with ZEISS. We are curious to see if that partnership will stick for the X70 series. Vivo certainly will start a long teasing campaign ahead of the smartphone’s release. So we expect more details to emerge in the near future.
