VIVO X60 series debuts with flagship hardware to challenge the OnePlus 9 trio

by Jeremy

Today, VIVO has launched its X60 series flagship phones, packing the latest silicon from Qualcomm and some impressive camera hardware that includes the second iteration of its gimbal-style camera setup. Notably, the company plans to sell the device in over 20 markets that include India, the UK, and the UAE, among a host of other European and APAC countries over the coming months. Going by the specs and asking price; the VIVO is squarely going against the OnePlus nine series.

55W fast charging and 48MP ultra-wide gimbal camera for the VIVO X60 Pro+

Starting with the top-of-the-line offering – the X60 Pro+, VIVO has equipped this with a 6.56-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate and curved sides. The company has used vegan leather in an Emperor Blue finish to make the device stand out to adorn its rear panel. Inside, you’ll find Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 running things in tandem with 12 gigs of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. There is a 4200mAh battery inside that supports 55W fast charging.

 

In the camera department, the VIVO X60 Pro+ offers a 50MP primary snapper with the Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor behind it. You also get a 48MP ultra-wide camera that is backed by proprietary gimbal stabilization hardware. There is a massive 32MP portrait camera and an 8MP telephoto lens as well that offers up to 5x optical and 60x hybrid optical zoom. 

VIVO X60 and X60 Pro employ Snapdragon 870 and support 33W fast charging

The VIVO X60 and X60 Pro, on the other hand, share a lot of their internals. They both employ the Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC, which keeps things in motion inside paired with up to 12 gigs of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. You get a triple camera setup at the back, including a 48MP primary snapper, 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 13MP portrait camera. Selfie and video calling duties are handled by a 32MP sensor on all three phones, though.

 

The vanilla Vivo X60 packs a 6.56-inch flat FHD+ panel, while the VIVO X60 Pro has a curved panel of the same size, while the 120Hz refresh rate is a trait shared by the board of both phones. The X60 comes equipped with a 4,300mAh battery, while its Pro sibling has a slightly smaller 4,200mAh juicer inside. Both the phones support 33W wired charging and come in two color options – Midnight Black and Shimmer Blue. 

All three VIVO phones support 5G and rely on an in-display fingerprint sensor for authentication. The standard VIVO X60 starts at INR 37,990 (~ $520), while the Pro model will set you back by INR 49,990 (~ $690) in India. For the VIVO X60 Pro+, buyers will have to shell out 69,990 (~ $960). VIVO is yet to announce the international pricing of the device, including some of its key European markets such as the UK.
