The Vivo X60 series, which is the successor to the Vivo X50 series, has arrived in India. The Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and Vivo X60 Pro+ are the three latest ones. While the Vivo X60 and X60 Pro+ are on opposite ends of the price spectrum, the Vivo X60 Pro sits in the middle, offering a combination of price and features. The new Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 SoC and a gimbal-stabilized 48-megapixel primary rear camera are two of the X60 Pro’s main features. I’m actually using the Vivo X60 Pro, and these are my initial thoughts.
Price of Vivo X60 Pro
The single 12GB RAM, 256GB storage configuration of the Vivo X60 Pro costs Rs. 49,990. The mobile is available in two colours: Midnight Black and Shimmer Blue. The Vivo X60 Pro is a slim phone that shares several design elements with the Vivo X50 Pro. A wide 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate is included. This show is covered by Schott Xensation reinforced glass. It curves around the sides of the Vivo X60 Pro, giving it a premium appearance.
Vivo has chosen a metal frame with a thin profile on the sides. Corning Gorilla Glass 6 covers the back of the this, which curves to match the frame. The phone’s curvature makes it easy to carry comfortably. The power and volume buttons are located on the right side of the device and are easily accessible. The power button has a textured pattern that makes it easy to find. The left side of the frame is absolutely clean, while the top has only the secondary microphone. The SIM tray, USB Type-C port, primary microphone, and speaker are all located at the bottom of the handset. Since you get two Nano-SIM slots, storage isn’t expandable.
The X60 Pro’s back camera module is the star of the show. The camera module has a dual-step design and is elevated. The flash is on the first layer, while all three cameras are on the second. The main camera is a 48-megapixel gimbal-stabilized camera, identical to the Vivo X50 Pro, and it tends to be physically larger than the other two. Gimbal Stabilization 2.0 is a new feature developed by Vivo, which claims to have enhanced stabilisation with this model. For wide-angle and portrait images, the Vivo X60 Pro has two additional 13-megapixel sensors. The frosted glass finish on the Midnight Black colour version was one of my favourites because it didn’t pick up fingerprints easily.
Since it only weighs 177g, I considered the phone to be manageable for single-handed use. Vivo has included a 4,200mAh battery, which is adequate considering the phone’s thickness. The Vivo X60 Pro supports 33W fast charging, and a 33W adapter is included in the kit. Since the phone lacks a 3.5mm port, Vivo includes a pair of in-ear headphones (with a 3.5mm plug) and a USB Type-C to 3.5mm headphone jack dongle in the box.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 5G SoC is featured on the Vivo X60 Pro, which is a recent addition. This is the first time I’ve seen this processor in a smartphone, and I’m excited to put it to the test. The X60 Pro is only available in one configuration: 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 storage. You can’t expand storage, but I’m not complaining because there’s 256GB onboard. Vivo has also included a feature called Virtual RAM, which allows up to 3GB of storage to be used as extra RAM. I’m interested in seeing how this feature works, so I’ll be putting it to the test during the analysis.
This comes preloaded with Vivo’s new FunTouch OS 11.1 on top of Android 11. It had the most recent Android security patch, which was released in February. I discovered a huge amount of preinstalled bloatware, including Facebook, Flipkart, Snapchat, and Moj, as well as a few Vivo games. If you don’t intend to use these applications, you may uninstall them.
I was impressed by the Vivo X50 Pro’s gimbal camera stabilisation system when I tested it. Now I’m interested to see what has changed. If you take a lot of videos and are considering the Vivo X60 Pro, don’t miss my full analysis, which will be published soon.
