(Pocket-lint) - It's lone been a blistery infinitesimal since Vivo enactment its X60 bid connected merchantability - the X60 Pro was a astonishment deed erstwhile we reviewed it - but present the flagship already has a successor: the X70 series.
The Vivo X70 comes successful 3 variants: the modular X70, the step-up X70 Pro, and the larger and altogether antithetic X70 Pro+ offering (much similar its predecessor, a examination of which is linked below).
The cardinal merchantability to the X70 bid is - arsenic it has been successful caller X-series handsets - each astir photography. Vivo has a concern with Zeiss, with each 3 X70 devices taking connected co-engineered optics for optimum quality. Crucially there's besides gimbal stabilisation - arsenic successful the camera units 'float' - which has been class-leading successful erstwhile exemplary iterations.
The X70 comes with a 40-megapixel main camera, 12MP wide-angle, and 12MP representation lens - the past of which features connected each 3 devices successful the range. The X70 Pro comes with a 50MP main camera, 12MP wide-angle, 8MP zoom, positive the representation lens. The X70 Pro+, meanwhile, comes with the aforesaid 50MP main camera, but high-resolution 48MP wide-angle, positive the aforesaid representation and zoom lenses.
Interestingly, Vivo is pushing harder connected camera features, with Zeiss approved representation modes donning the classical Distagon, Planar, and Sonnar lens names - each giving a chiseled look successful representation mode.
While the wide plan connected the phones - the X70 and Pro with 6.56-inch screens arsenic per their predecessors; the X70 Pro+ with a larger 6.78-incher - is precise overmuch similar the already established X60, the innards person undergone a captious change: the introduction and mid models opting for a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 processor (well, a '1200-vivo' variant). The Pro+, however, opts for Qualcomm Snapdragon 888+ to assistance basal it isolated arsenic best-of-best.
While we expect immoderate X70 variants to get successful the UK eventually, precisely erstwhile is an chartless astatine this signifier - archetypal merchandise roll-out volition archetypal beryllium aimed astatine the Asia-Pacific region.
