Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 ? launched in India this week ? aim to tackle some of the most popular high-end models in the smartphone market. Vivo?s new flagships continue the legacy of the Series X by delivering premium camera experiences. This means that Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 not only feature Zeiss optics, but also include Sony image sensors. The standard Vivo X80 is also the first phone on the market to feature the recently launched MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC. Meanwhile, the Vivo X80 Pro sports the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, Qualcomm?s best offering.
On this week?s episode of the Gadgets 360 Orbital podcast, host Akhil Arora sits down with lead reviewers Sheldon Pinto and Aditya Shenoy to discuss the Vivo X80 series and how it compares to the OnePlus 10 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S22 and iPhone 13.
The Vivo X80 Pro is priced at Rs. 79,999 for the sole 12GB RAM + 256GB storage variant, while the Vivo X80 starts at Rs. 54,999 for the base 8GB + 128GB configuration, and rises to Rs. 59,999 for the top-end 12GB + 256GB model. Vivo X80 Pro and Vivo X80 will go on sale from May 25.
Vivo X80 Pro first impressions: A worthy upgrade?
If you were to make direct comparisons, the price of the Vivo X80 Pro would seem significantly higher than that of the Vivo X70 Pro which debuted in India at a starting price of Rs. 46,990 for the 8GB + 128GB model. But that?s the wrong comparison to make. The Vivo X80 Pro is priced the same as the Vivo X70 Pro+, which came in at Rs. 79,990 for the same 12GB + 256GB variant.
This suggests that the Vivo X80 Pro was introduced in the Indian market as a successor to the Vivo X70 Pro+, not the Vivo X70 Pro. The vanilla Vivo X80, on the other hand, seems to be the successor to the Vivo X70 Pro. It?s confusing, I know, but that?s what happens when companies try to simplify naming conventions.
As I said before, Vivo is pushing a slate of camera-focused features on the X80 series to entice those in the market for enhanced mobile photography experiences. The Vivo X80 Pro comes with four rear cameras which include a 50-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL CNG main sensor, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide shooter carrying a Sony IMX598 sensor, a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 portrait sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor. . with a periscope-shaped lens.
In contrast, the Vivo X80 sports a triple rear camera that houses a 50-megapixel Sony IMX866 RGBW main sensor, along with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide shooter and a 12-megapixel portrait sensor. The Vivo X80 Pro and X80 are also equipped with a 32-megapixel selfie camera sensor on the front.
Along with the new hardware, the Vivo X80 phones have a list of software changes to deliver a customizable camera experience. The Vivo X80 Pro also retains the company?s gimbal technology which is supposed to help provide increased exposure and stability.
Vivo X80 Pro and X80 both come with an IP rating for dust and water resistance. The X80, however, only has an IP53 rating meant for splash resistance ? essentially you can?t dive with the phone in a pool.
Vivo X80 first impressions: A promising high-end all-rounder
Design-wise, the Vivo X80 Pro and X80 are nearly identical, with the former?s periscope lens bringing a minor distinction to the rear. The design is also quite similar to the Vivo X70 Pro+. We talk more about the design and performance of the two Vivo X80 phones on our podcast.
