vivo X60 Pro+ and X60 Pro in for review
Welcome to our first look at the vivo X60 Pro and vivo X60 Pro +. The just announced pair of flagships have been with us for a few days now and we have put them through our review glove. But until it’s ready, I’ll do an unboxing and check what their key features are. The following video should get started quickly if you missed the message.
The Vivo X60 Pro and Pro + differ in a few ways, but the camera system, battery charge and processor are the most important.
Both phones come with a USB cable, headphones, USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, case and a charger – the Pro + gets a 55W brick, while the Pro gets a 33W – matching their supported rates. Both devices use these adapters to charge the same 4,200 mAh battery.
Unboxing of vivo X60 Pro and X60 Pro +
The two vivo are identical from the front, where you are greeted by a 6.56-inch Super AMOLED with 1080p resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10 + support and well over 1000 nits with maximum brightness on auto. It’s a nice screen that we have come to expect from vivo’s advanced series.
The downside is where things are noticeably different. The Vivo X60 Pro is reminiscent of last year’s vivo X50 Pro and Pro + with a satin-like finish that both feels smooth to the touch and removes fingerprints. Vivo X60 Pro + brings a vegan leather panel in what the manufacturer calls Emperor Blue. It’s a beauty and feels great to the touch. And judging by the Oppo Find X2 Pro, which we still have on the holder, the vegan leather cover is quality made and does not scrub easily when used.
Vivo X60 Pro and X60 Pro + side by side
The Vivo X60 Pro + is the company’s most capable smartphone to date with a Snapdragon 888 chipset and the more powerful camera system. Its main sensor is a 50MP 1 / 1.3 “Samsung ISOCELL GN1, we are familiar from last year’s vivo X50 Pro +. The ultrawide camera uses a 48MP IMX598 sensor (the same sensor used in the main cameras of the X60 and X60 Pro) and has the gimbal stabilization system.
The X60 Pro + is also the only one that has a 5x periscope as far as the international version of the X60 lineup is concerned.
Both the vivo X60 Pro and Pro + have vivo’s pixel shift function, which aims to surpass the traditional demoization algorithm and achieve higher details per Pixels and improve color accuracy.
Vivo X60 Pro is not dormant with a 7nm Snapdragon 870 chipset instead of 5nm 888. Camera-wise, it uses the 48MP sensor on the X60 Pro +’s ultra-wide for its main camera under a more standard 26mm lens. As in the Pro +, this is the camera that has the gimbal stabilization function.
The rest of the cameras are a 13MP 2x zoom and a 13MP ultra-wide – not quite flagship, but perfectly versatile.
Our reviews of the vivo X60 Pro and X60 Pro + are well underway, but there is quite a lot to cover. Stick around!
