Although Vivo had just announced it’s Vivo X Note flagship model several weeks ago, but that didn’t stops the company from launching yet another high-end device known as the Vivo X80 Pro which will be succeeding last year’s Vivo X70 Pro (Review).
The new model brings along plenty of upgrades not just to the performance department, but also it’s imaging and fast-charging capabilities. Without further ado, let’s check out what the new device has in store for us!
Just like most other recent flagship models, the Vivo X80 Pro adopts a high-end LTPO 2 AMOLED display which measures 6.78” diagonally, and offers a super sharp QHD+ screen resolution alongside a smooth 120Hz adaptive refresh rate that’s capable of switching from 1Hz up to 120Hz according to the onscreen contents.
On top of that, the display itself also supports a wide DCI-P3 color gamut coverage, an impressive 10-bit color depth and 8,000,000:1 contrast ratio, as well as a peak brightness of up to 1,500 nits to keep the screen visible even when using the phone directly under the sunlight.
On the imaging front, Vivo continues to partner up with camera specialist Zeiss for it’s quad-camera system lead by a 50 megapixels Samsung ISOCELL GNV 1G primary shooter with a large 1/1.3″ sensor size and a bright f/1.57 aperture.
As for the other three cameras, they include a 48 megapixels Sony IMX 598 ultra-wide camera, 12 megapixels Sony IMX663 portrait lens with Gimbal-style stabilization system, as well as an 8 megapixels telephoto unit which offers 5x optical zoom. These cameras as usual, are backed by vivo V1+ ISP chip for enhanced low-light photography.
Performance & Charging
Under the hood, the Vivo X80 Pro is powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset which will be paired with up to 12GB RAM and 512GB built-in storage. Like any other flagship devices, we won’t be expecting any microSD slot here.

On the software side of things, the Vivo X80 Pro is shipped with OriginOS Ocean based on Android 12 OS right off the box. Global variant of the phone however, is expected to boot on the latest version of FuntouchOS instead.
