Vivo X60 series: release date
And today, the company took to Weibo to confirm the launch date for its new X series offerings. The Vivo X60 will be unveiled on December 29, as you can see in the attached teaser poster below. We expect the company to launch three new phones: the Vivo X60, X60 Pro, and the X60 Pro + in China. They will work as successors to this X50 series from earlier this year.
Vivo has also created a dedicated landing page, showcasing some of the key features of the upcoming Vivo X60 series. This includes Zeiss cameras, Exynos 1080 SoC under this hood, also OriginOS on top, to name a few.
Vivo X60 Series: Specifications
The basic specifications for the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro have already been leaked online. We are already informed that these two smartphones will be the first in this world to be powered by the 5nm-based Exynos 1080 chipset. You’ll also find up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage on board. The devices will run Android 11-based OriginOS (an update over Vivo’s existing FunTouchOS skin) that was recently announced.
Both models are said to feature a 6.55-inch Full-HD + AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole selfie camera. The only difference here is that the X60 will include a flat-screen, while the X60 Pro will have curved edges. The former is also said to feature a 4,300 mAh battery compared to the slightly smaller 4,200 mAh battery in the Pro variant. Both phones will be equipped with 33W fast charging support.
The massive Zeiss-branded camera setup on the rear houses a 48MP main camera (with a slight difference in aperture) and a 13MP ultra-wide camera for both variants. The triple camera system on the standard X60 will be completed with an 8MP portrait lens, while the quad-camera system on the Pro variant will include a 13MP portrait lens and an 8MP telephoto lens.
On the other hand, Vivo X60 Pro + remains shrouded in mystery, but it is expected to feature a Snapdragon 888 SoC under the hood. Vivo may only show the X60 Pro + at the event and officially launch it at a later date. So yes, stay tuned for more information.
