vivo’s X50 Pro was one of the best cameraphones that the company produced last year, so it’s no surprise that it’s looking to improve on the formula with even an even better gimbal and new processing muscle. The X60 Pro+ is the natural evolution of the gimbal-powered phone last year, which now has prominent Zeiss branding over its lenses.
The main camera module is a 50-megapixel Samsung-made ISOCELL GN1. The camera sensor is 1/1.3” large, has regular OIS and an extremely large f/1.57 aperture for low-light shooting. The 48-megapixel ultra-wide module gets an upgraded gimbal that can correct for ±3° of movement and has a 114-degree FOV. There’s also an 8-megapixel periscope camera here with 5x optical zoom capability (up to 60x with digital zoom) and a second periscope camera for 2x magnification and a 32-megapixel sensor. The phone can shoot 4K HDR10+ videos, as well as 8K videos as well.
vivo has made good on its Zeiss partnership last year, and the German brand’s name is proudly displayed across the camera module for the X60 Pro+. While details are hazy for now on the extent of the partnership for this particular phone, we wager Zeiss had a hand in the software algorithm of the cameras. Zeiss patented T* anti-reflective coating is also applied on the vivo X60+’s multiple lenses.
The display is a 6.56-inch OLED panel that has a 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz sampling rate, as well as HDR10+ capabilities. It has a full HD+ resolution though, but on the upside, it’s incredibly bright, capable of producing 1,300 nits.
Powering the phone is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 processor, which is quite the upgrade from last year’s Snapdragon 865+. There are going to be two versions of the phone: one will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and another variant that has 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
Prices for the vivo X60 Pro+ starts at RMB 5000 (Php 37.1K) for the 8GB/128GB variant, while the higher 12GB/256GB variant is priced at RMB 6000 (Php 44.5K).
