A couple of weeks after the official launch in China, the new Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro smartphones are now announced for the global market. This is a very important first step, in view of possible commercialization also in Europe, a market in which Vivo aims to significantly expand its presence over the next few years, also thanks to high-end products, characterized by complete specifications.
These new Vivo two smartphones have some substantial differences, with the Pro having a top-of-the-range Qualcomm SoC and an unprecedented custom photo-sensor made in collaboration with Samsung.
Vivo X80 Series Arrive on the Global Market
The global launch of the new Vivo X80 and Vivo X80 Pro is poised to conquer the global market. After the start of sales in China, at the end of April, the two top-of-the-range Vivo products officially land outside the Chinese borders. International marketing starts from Malaysia.
Over the next few months, the two smartphones (or even just one of the two) could also debut in Europe
South Asia, with all markets outside of China, represents a fundamental area for Vivo which, therefore, chooses its key markets for marketing the “Global” versions of the new Vivo X80 and X80 Pro. The Vivo X80 arrives on the market in the Cosmic Black and Urban Blue variants while the Pro version is available exclusively in the Cosmic Black version.
Vivo X80 and X80 Pro Specifications
The Vivo X80 Pro is driven by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and comes with a 6.78-inch diagonal AMOLED display with QHD+ resolution and LTPO 3.0 panel at 120 Hz. The smartphone can count on a 4,700 mAh battery with support for fast charging from 80 W and wireless charging from 50 W.
At the rear, there is a quad-camera setup, with 50-megapixel ISOCELL GNV main sensor with OIS. This sensor is a modified version, specifically for Vivo, of Samsung’s ISOCELL GN1 and promises excellent performance. The smartphone can also count on a custom ISP, called Vivo V1 Plus.
Talking about the X80, the smartphone will arrive on the market with the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC and with a Samsung AMOLED E5 display with a 6.78-inch diagonal and Full HD+ resolution as well as a 120 Hz refresh rate.
Among other specifications, we find a 4,500 mAh battery, with 80 W fast charging and 50 W wireless charging, as well as a triple rear camera with a 60 Megapixel Sony IMX866 main sensor. Note that only the Pro variant can count on IP60 certification. For both smartphones, however, there is Android 12 with Funtouch OS 12.
