(Pocket-lint) – It is solely been a scorching minute since Vivo put its X60 collection on sale – the X60 Pro was a surprise hit when we reviewed it – however now the flagship already has a successor: the X70 collection.
The Vivo X70 is available in three variants: the usual X70, the step-up X70 Professional, and the bigger and altogether completely different X70 Professional+ providing (very like its predecessor, a comparability of which is linked beneath).
The important thing promote to the X70 collection is – because it has been in latest X-series handsets – all about images. Vivo has a partnership with Zeiss, with all three X70 gadgets taking up co-engineered optics for optimum high quality. Crucially there’s additionally gimbal stabilisation – as within the digital camera models ‘float’ – which has been class-leading in earlier mannequin iterations.
The X70 comes with a 40-megapixel major digital camera, 12MP wide-angle, and 12MP portrait lens – the final of which options on all three gadgets within the vary. The X70 Professional comes with a 50MP major digital camera, 12MP wide-angle, 8MP zoom, plus the portrait lens. The X70 Professional+, in the meantime, comes with the identical 50MP major digital camera, however high-resolution 48MP wide-angle, plus the identical portrait and zoom lenses.
Apparently, Vivo is pushing tougher on digital camera options, with Zeiss authorized portrait modes donning the traditional Distagon, Planar, and Sonnar lens names – every giving a definite look in portrait mode.
While the overall design on the phones – the X70 and Pro with 6.56-inch screens as per their predecessors; the X70 Pro+ with a larger 6.78-incher – is very much like the already established X60, the innards have undergone a critical change: the entry and mid models opting for a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor (properly, a ‘1200-vivo’ variant). The Professional+, nonetheless, opts for Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ to assist stand it aside as best-of-best.
Whereas we anticipate some X70 variants to reach within the UK ultimately, precisely when is an unknown at this stage – preliminary product roll-out will first be aimed on the Asia-Pacific area.
