The former BBK affiliate Vivo is making things exciting again with the Vivo X80 Pro. Where the price only in this country is unknown. If the Chinese manufacturer has already presented the entire series in its homeland, then recently there were only two models in India. In this country as well as in other European countries, only the Pro model will remain on June 15, 2022, the group has now announced.
Vivo X80 Pro launch event in Berlin
Vivo has now invited representatives of the German press to the launch event of the Vivo X80 Pro in Berlin. And the address is already known: it is Wednesday, June 15, when the group wants to present the smartphone, known since April 25, in Germany. And although the Vivo X80 Pro is traditionally the only one left of the actual trio in this country, we are still very grateful. Because the predecessor did not want to be sold to us in Europe.
After the smartphone has already hit a few pitfalls with April 25 in China and May 8 in Malaysia and the start of sales on May 25 in India, there has also been a certain change. This basically only affects the built-in processor. If the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 octa-core processor is installed in China, then the Vivo X80 Pro in that country is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC (System on a Chip). In a straightforward benchmark, it was said that MediaTek was clearly the fastest chip. A colleague from TradingShenzhen*, who already has both models offered, reported marginal differences.
Final Main Camera Specifications
It is possible that a flagship smartphone will not be available with such a wide range of memories as it is in China. We suspect a combination of 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of internal UFS 3.1 software storage. According to the Smartphone Blogger (who is not a blogger but a YouTuber), the screen is supposed to be exciting. We have shown a video of his review below. It’s a third-generation 6.78-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels (QHD+) with a resolution of 517 pixels per inch. The refresh rate is of course 120 Hz and the maximum brightness is 1300 nits. The front camera in the top center offers a resolution of 32 megapixels.
However, the significantly faster and larger ultrasonic fingerprint sensor located under the display is causing a lot of excitement (see video). In my opinion, the main highlight of the IP68-certified Vivo X80 Pro is the quad camera on the back. In the past, Vivo was able to play the trump cards in this field by cooperating with German optics specialist ZEISS. And so it seems that this time we have succeeded once again in setting new standards.
Vivo V1 to win!
The technical facts are 50MP main camera (f/1.57 & OIS), 48MP wide angle, 12MP selfie, 8MP periscope camera with optical stabilization, 5x lossless camera. I’ll find out by June 15th at the latest if the gimbal will be installed again. In any case, the V1 internal photo chip is used, which we expect a lot from when it comes to night photography.
To round out the technical data, the built-in stereo speakers and the 4700 mAh battery should also be mentioned. This can be connected to a fork via the accompanying 80W power supply and charged wirelessly to a maximum of 50W. As mentioned at the beginning, we still miss the price. It is unlikely that it will be the estimated 5,999 yuan in China – roughly 850 euros. In India it was already 79,999 rupees, which translates to 980 euros. So you should prepare yourself for 1099 euros in this country. or? What do you mean?
