The timing of the international premiere of the X60 and X60 Pro is hardly a coincidence, and not just the parent company: the camera focus is also common.
BBK Electronics ’OnePlus will soon unveil its 9 and 9 Pro high-end devices, with the Hasselblad collaboration voiced for weeks. Until then, BBK partner Vivo also hears about himself: a Vivo X60 family after its Chinese premiere, it was done with minor international changes, but Zeiss’s collaboration remained.
For example, it is not outside China Pro+ model with the Snapdragon 888 and the international X60 Pro from the Exynos 1080 to the Snapdragon 870 – neither chip can be complained about, as the 12GB of RAM and 256GB of UFS storage sound great. The 6.56 “AMOLED panel is 1080 x 2376 pixels and 120 Hz, and behind it is a 4200 mAh battery with 33 watts of fast charging.
But the point is not on these or even the 5G modem, but on the cameras, and not on the front 32 megapixel, but on the back island, which is headed by a 48 megapixel main unit with f / 1.48 aperture and gimbal 2.0 fancy name, more advanced with image stabilization. The ultra-wide module is 13 megapixels (f / 2.2, 16 mm), just like the zoom camera (50 mm, f / 2.46), and lacks a dual LED flash.
By the way, Vivo is present in more and more European countries, including nearby Romania, Poland or the Czech Republic, but the prices of the euro or the local release date of the X60 have not yet been announced by the brand. All we know, however, is that both models fall into the upper-middle class.
The X60 differs quite a bit from the Pro variation – mostly in size: while the former is 159.63 x 75.01 x 7.36 millimeters (really weighed so accurately?) And weighs 176 grams, the latter 158.58 x 83.24 x 7 , 59 millimeters and one gram fatter. The main difference is not the display parameters (FHD + 6.56 “AMOLED, 120 Hz), but the flat design against the curving Pro. Most of the camera parameters are the same, but the 48 megapixel main unit has a f / 1.79 aperture lens , with traditional optical image stabilization instead of gimbal.
There is a tiny Zeiss logo on the back of both mobiles, meaning the German photographer brand takes its share of the image quality, and in addition to advanced optics, the Vivo also went for the nightly theme. The sleek X60 also employs a Snapdragon 870 SoC and also offers a 12/256GB combination according to the international product page at no price. Common to the two nanoSIM sockets and the 5G modem, AC WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1 and USB 2.0, Type-C port. The cheaper Vivo, on the other hand, packs 100 mAh into the battery size of its professional counterpart.
