Vivo has just launched a new trio of smartphones in the form of Vivo X70, X70, and Vivo X70 Pro+. We’ve covered the two first devices previously, and now, it’s time to talk about the true flagship smartphone of the Vivo X70 series. While the other two devices can be considered “cost-effective” flagships, the Vivo X70 Pro+ is here for those who don’t care in spending money for getting the best possible package of specs Vivo has to offer. The new handset comes with the most cutting-edge chip in the industry, upgraded display, and camera setup. Without further ado, let’s dive into the specifications of the Vivo X70 Pro+.
Vivo X70 Pro+ specifications
The Vivo X70 Pro+ flaunts a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED display which is bigger and better than the 6.56-inch found on the X60 Pro+. The device also gives a step forward in resolution with 3,200 x 1,440 pixels which is a major step forward from its predecessor 1080+ and maintains the HDR support.
The new display uses an LTPO panel, therefore it can gradually adjust its refresh rate in the range 1 Hz to 120 Hz. It adjusts dynamically depending on the content shown in the screen. The touch sampling rate is 300 Hz. Moreover, the newer E5 panel also uses 25 percent less power than the older E4 panels.
Under the hood, the excellent smartphone carries the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+. It’s better than most smartphones released this year with the SD888. This variant boosts the prime CPU core to 2,995 GHz, up from 2.84 GHz. It also boosts the AI engine by 20%. The device is paired with LPDDR5 RAM with 8 GB or 12 GB capacity. There is also 256 GB or 512 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
The new model draws its powers from a 4,500 mAh battery which charges fast via 55 W fast-charging. In addition to this, the device has 50 W wireless fast charging. The device runs Android 11 OS with Origin OS 1.0 on top.
A high-end innovative camera setup
The Vivo X70 Pro+ certainly ticks most of the boxes in the display and performance department. However, the big star here is the camera setup. The main camera is built around the 50 MP Samsung GN1 sensor with 1.2um pixels (2.4um with binning). There is an ultrawide camera with 48 MP resolution and a gimbal stabilization system.
There are also two telephoto modules. One is an 8 MP 125 mm periscope lens with 5 x magnification and f/3.4 lens. The latter is a 12 MP sensor with a brighter f/1.6 lens and 50 mm size. All four cameras boast some sort of Optical Image Stabilization as well as electronic stabilization. The lenses also feature ZEISS T* anti-reflective coating. Moreover, the optics-centric brand has contributed to the ultra-low dispersion glass for the lens, reducing glare and chromatic aberration.
The company has changed the setup with the addition of its new Custom V1 chip that handles the image processing and doing some advanced AI magic. It also works to ensure that the system will use less energy than the chipset running the same algorithms. Also, there’s a ceramic “cloud windows”, though that’s mostly there for decoration.
Pricing and Availability
The Vivo X70 Pro+ will be available in China later this month. The device’s price will start at CNY 5,500 ($850) for the base 8 GB RAM / 256 GB Storage model. The mid-tier option costs around CNY 6,000 ($930) and comes with 12 GB / 256 GB. The top-notch option has 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of Storage and costs CNY 7,000 ($1085).
