Vital information about the Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro smartphones has surfaced online ahead of their India launch. Vivo will be unveiling two new smartphones dubbed the Vivo X80, and the X80 Pro in India in the coming days. Now, some key details about the upcoming Vivo phones have surfaced online before they go official in the country. An industry source has confirmed the Vivo X80, and Vivo X80 Pro smartphones’ RAM, colors, and storage variants to MySmartPrice.
Vivo will launch the X80 series smartphones in India on May 18. Regrettably, an industry source suggests that the Dongguan-based technology company will not launch the popular Orange color variant in the Indian market. Furthermore, previously surfaced teasers confirm that the upcoming lineup will include the vanilla Vivo X80, as well as the Vivo X80 Pro models. According to an industry source, the Vivo X80 will be available in 8GB RAM+128GB storage, and 12GB RAM+256GB storage variants.

However, the Pro variant will be available in a sole 12GB RAM+256GB storage variant. Moreover, it is worth mentioning here that the Chinese version of the smartphone doesn’t support storage expansion via a micro SD card slot. So, there is a possibility that the Indian variant will skip the feature as well. The Vivo X80 series garnered huge popularity in the company’s home country of China. In fact, it went on to win the coveted multi-channel sales champion in the CNY 3500 – CNY 6000 price range. It remains to be seen whether the lineup gains the same reception in India when it arrives in the country later this month.
The X80 and the X80 Pro will be available in different hues. For instance, the industry source predicts that the Vivo X80 will be up for grabs in Blue and Black color variants. Likewise, the Vivo X80 Pro will be available in the sole Black color variant. Moreover, the Chinese variants have glass backs. Notably, the Vivo X80 Blue color variant looks more like the Cyan tone in the global model. The Black-tinted X80 Pro model features a matte and velvet texture. Now, the Indian versions of the Vivo phones are likely to retain most of the specifications of their Chinese counterparts. However, we can expect Vivo to make a few minor adjustments for the Indian audience.
Vivo X80, Vivo X80 Pro Specifications
The standard Vivo X80 model sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED display, which is a Samsung E5 panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. Furthermore, this screen delivers a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. There’s also a punch-hole cutout that houses the 32MP selfie camera. However, the most notable feature of the X80 is its rear camera setup. First off, it has a 50MP Sony IMX866 main camera on the back. Aside from this, the phone features a 12MP ultrawide and a 12MP telephoto lens. This sensor supports 2x optical and 20x hybrid zoom. Moreover, the optics are from German manufacturer Zeiss. On top, there’s a Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating.
Under the hood, the phone packs a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC, paired with the company’s in-house V1+ chip dedicated imaging chip. Furthermore, the phone runs Android 12 OS with Funtouch OS 12 on top. It uses a 4,500mAh battery to draw the juices. Now, the Pro variant is quite different from the vanilla model. First off, it comes with an LTPO screen that offers a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz. However, it has the same 6.78-inch display size. The global version is available with MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoCs and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Furthermore, it carries an IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
The Pro variant has a robust 4700mAh battery unit with 50W wireless fast charging, 80W fast charging, and 0W wireless reverse charging support, as per a report by the Times of India. Also, it features an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner under the display. It will be interesting to see whether the Indian version of the X80 and X80 Pro come with some significant changes in terms of specs.
