here is the new 'flagship' of vivo, which now dares

A wolf in sheep's clothing, never better said, this new vivo X60 Pro + that finally dares to attack the forefront with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, ZEISS optics and flag finishes.

They have had a strong breakfast in 2021 the leaders of alive, and is that the Chinese manufacturer, which ended 2020 pleasantly surprising us with its good ideas, has started this course upgrading to its highest end even before starting, with a new X60 family that was presented in two flavors 'powered by Samsung Exynos'.

The strategy started with the vivo X51 5G was thus maintained, which will continue as head of series in Europe for a few more weeks, prioritizing the best user experience ahead of numbers and power, although certainly, sooner or later, We all knew that alive I was going to have to attack the most performance range if you wanted to position yourself in the industry as a leading-edge manufacturer.

With you, the new vivo X60 Pro +, a wolf in sheep's clothing… Better said than ever!

It was a matter of time, and since I live they have not taken too long to meet expectations, presenting very early in 2021 its new 'flagship phone', which is none other than this vivo X60 Pro + that completes the X60 family by adopting the best chipset on the market, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 that presides over a smartphone with many good things ... As you will see!

The vivo X60 Pro + will come out with a leather back and the new Snapdragon 888

We had already anticipated it a few hours before its official presentation in China, but now we have all the details so, as always, let's start with him datasheet What we know is the priority in these cases.

The live devil wears Prada

The Chinese manufacturer had to make the leap, and it is that no matter how good it seems to us to bet on a less performance cut while maintaining the best user experience and a more competitive price, it is the highest range that positions you in the market compared to a competition that is too fierce.

And in good faith they have dared, because vivo bets as you have seen for the most performance hardware on the market, presiding over a Qualcomm Snadpragon 888 chipset that will undoubtedly reign again, despite the fact that Samsung has also achieved a minimal redemption with the new Exynos 2100, and also accompanied for the occasion of 8 or 12 GB of LPDDR5x RAM along with 128 or 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage high perfomance.

Regarding the screen, we again find a 6.56-inch AMOLED panel with FHD + resolution, refresh rate of 120Hz and HDR10 +, with full DCI-P3 range and peaks up to 1,300 nits of brightness. It is slightly curved and protected by Gorilla Glass, without references, with a touch digitizer up to 240Hz.

Also, on the outside we will meet a very clean and elegant design around a metal chassis, in line with what we had seen from the Chinese manufacturer, but raising the bar this time with a rear made of high quality leather, we assume synthetic obviously, which has prevented vivo from implementing wireless charging.

Yes, we will see fast charging up to 55W for its 4,200 mAh battery, which will allow you to recover in just over half an hour connected to the electrical network, the entire autonomy of the device.

Standing out is not easy, and although in China vivo is a well-known giant, the truth is that they needed this step forward in hardware and differential value to position themselves in international markets… Will this vivo X60 Pro + be the confirmation of its potential?

Once again, all the fish have gone to mobile photography

Although the design is known and the configuration of the main photographic module is similar, it must be recognized that the jump offered by vivo is enormous, so the module also grows to a huge size placed on a hump that lines up with the upper left from the leather back.

In any case, Let's start with the front because it is simpler, where we will find a hole centered in the upper part of the screen to adopt behind it to a 32 megapixel sensor with HDR, aperture f / 2.5 and the possibility of recording video in 4K.

The main camera is much more ambitious, starting with an authorized firm such as ZEISS in an industry where standing out is complicated, but where high-quality optics like these promise credentials and above-average results for a manufacturer who wants precisely to excel.

Obviously, it also accompanies the rest of the photographic cast, which now we will describe in detail:

  • 50 MP Samsung GN1 main sensor: wide, aperture f / 1.57, dual pixel PDAF, laser AF, OIS
  • 48 MP Sony IMX598 secondary sensor: ultrawide, f / 2.0 aperture, 14mm-equivalent, 114º, 3D gimbal stabilizer
  • 32 MP telephoto sensor: telephoto, f / 2.1 aperture, 50mm-equivalent, PDAF, 2x optical zoom
  • 8 MP periscope sensor: periscope telephoto, f / 3.4 aperture, 125mm-equivalent, PDAF, OIS, 5x optical zoom

They do not miss the appointment a dual dual tone LED flashnor the smart features with auto-HDR, let alone the video recording up to 8K at 30 frames per second with gyro-EIS and HDR10 +.

ZEISS optics also have anti-reflective coating T*, next to a nanocrystalline structure that is the first of its kind to be used in smartphones globally.

They say from alive, to complete such a photographic beast, that his way Super Night Mode 2.0 is capable of operating at only 0.01 lux, having improved its sensitivity by up to 38.8% with better focus precision compared to the previous generation ... It all sounds great, so let's see if we can prove it!

vivo X60 Pro +, availability and prices

Vivo's new X60 Pro + already sold in China at prices that, as always, seem very far from reality in our markets, starting from 4,998 yuan for the basic version, with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. How much do we talk about? Well, only 635 euros at the current exchange rate for a beast that will hardly find competition at this cost.

In fact, it is that if you want the wealthiest model, with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the price in China is 5,998 yuan, about 765 euros to change that here would become insurance about 1,000 euros after duties and taxes.

It seems too good to be true, and although We hope that I live to present it to us in Europe soon, for now we can only get our long teeth with the reviews that are published on YouTube by their first and lucky holders in China ... Let's see how that camera signed by ZEISS performs!

If it was already difficult to choose between OPPO, Xiaomi and realme, it will soon be even worse: vivo will also enter Spain
