Vivo today officially unveiled the X80 flagship camera phones, which are poised for leadership (or at least the first positions) in the DxOMark ranking. The base model is called X80. The combination of price and features of the smartphone looks very attractive.
To start with, the Vivo X80 is based on the MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC. This platform outperforms even the Snapdragon 8 Gen1 in performance, not to mention the Exynos 2200 that underlies the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. So the Vivo flagship is definitely faster than the Samsung flagship.
Interestingly, the engineers have provided a fairly large evaporation chamber – its area is 4285 mm2. At the same time, it should be noted that Dimensity 9000 is not subject to overheating, unlike Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The Vivo X80 features a 6.78-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage and 1500cd/m2 peak brightness.
A detailed comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Vivo X80 cameras will appear later, but for now, you can simply evaluate the technical parameters of the new product. The main sensor is the latest 50MP Sony IMX866 with RGBW pixel layout. It is complemented by an optical image stabilization system. The other two sensors are 12-megapixel Sony IMX663. One works in conjunction with an ultra wide-angle lens, the other with a telephoto lens. It should be noted that the optics are of high quality – Zeiss Vario-Tessar. To improve photos and videos (especially in low light conditions), the proprietary V1+ image processor is called upon.
Vivo X80 received a 4500 mAh battery with support for 80 W fast charging. It takes 34 minutes to fully charge the battery.
Vivo X80 configuration also includes stereo speakers, NFC, IR emitter, USB 3.1 Type-C port. In terms of appearance, the smartphone has two versions: in one, the back panel is covered with glass (thickness and weight – 8.3 mm and 206 grams), in the other, leather imitation is implemented (8.78 mm and 203 grams).
Prices are as follows: 8/128 GB – $565, 8/256 – $610, 12/256 – $670, 12/512 GB – $745.
