Vivo’s latest flagship series, the X80 has been launched for the Indian market. The X series will focus on the camera and continues with the Zeiss partnership that we’ve seen in the previous X60 and X70 series. The high-end X80 Pro will compete with other high-end flagships such as the OnePlus 10 Pro, Xiaomi 12 Pro, Apple’s iPhone 13, and Samsung Galaxy S22 series. The X80 Pro will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, while the X80 runs the Mediatek Dimensity 900 processor.
Both phones also come with a dedicated V1+ imaging chipset from the company, T-Star coating on the camera lenses as well. The latter is certified by Zeiss. The camera software also includes a new cinematic video mode, which is built in collaboration with Zeiss.
