The first smartphone based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is presented – this is the flagship Vivo X90 Pro+ with a chic camera and a price of 910 US dollars

The flagship smartphone Vivo X90 Pro + is presented, which the manufacturer calls the “king of 1-inch sensors”, which implies that the novelty is the best smartphone with a rear camera on a 1-inch image sensor. And if it’s all about the properties, Vivo should be right, because the new flagship has really interesting features.

In addition to the 1-inch Sony IMX989 image sensor with a resolution of 50 MP, the main camera of the Vivo X90 Pro+ boasts optics with an Abbe number of 81.6 – the higher this value, the less light is scattered when passing through the lens. Also noted is the presence of the Zeiss T* coating, which reduces glare and other artifacts. Finally, the main camera lens has a fairly wide aperture of f/1.75, allowing more light through.

The main camera is complemented by three other modules: a pair of cameras with telephoto lenses and a wide-angle module. One of the telephoto lenses is based on a 64-megapixel sensor and features 90mm optics with a 3.5x optical (and 100x digital) zoom, and the other is a portrait lens with 50mm optics (f/1.6), fixed focus and 50 MP IMX758 sensor. The wide-angle camera uses a 48MP IMX598 sensor with 114-degree optics. The front camera is based on a 32 MP image sensor.

The X90 Pro+ supports 8K video recording at 30fps, and there’s support for 14-bit RAW video too. It is possible to calibrate the camera with a standard gray card and choose between Zeiss Natural Color 2.0 or vivo Vivid Color mode. Dolby Vision and LOG are also supported.

In addition to the advanced camera, the Vivo X90 Pro+ boasts the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor – apparently the first smartphone to use this chip. It is supplemented by 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of UFS 4.0 flash memory. The chipset is equipped with a large vapor chamber with a total fin area of ​​8900mm², which ensures stable operation and high performance.

Also, the novelty received a Vivo V2 signal processor for image processing. The chip delivers 16 trillion operations per watt and is equipped with 45 MB of onboard SRAM. It combines a signal processor and an AI accelerator and supports noise reduction, HDR, MEMC and more.

The Vivo X90 Pro+ comes with a large 6.78-inch display with a resolution of 3200 × 1440 pixels (20:9). It is based on a LTPO AMOLED (Samsung E6) panel with 10-bit color and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. For dimming, the display uses a high-frequency PWM system with a frequency of 1440 Hz. Brightness reaches 1800 cd /m²2. The display is factory calibrated and supports Dolby Vision.

The body of the phone comes in two colors – China Red and Original Black, both with leather texture. The housing has an IP68 protection class against dust and water. The thickness of the smartphone is an impressive 9.7 mm and it weighs 221 g. Inside is a 4700mAh battery that’s split into two cells for fast charging – up to 80W wired and up to 50W wireless. In the first case, the battery is fully charged again in 33 minutes. Another new flagship is equipped with stereo speakers, supports Bluetooth 5.3, as well as aptX HD and LDAC. There’s also a USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-C port with video output support. The Vivo X90 Pro+ will initially be launched in China with OriginOS 3 based on Android 13.

Pre-orders for the X90 Pro+ will start on November 28th and sales will start on December 6th. But so far only in China – nothing is known about global plans. Vivo X90 Pro+ will be available for 6,500 yuan, or about $910. The older model with 12+512GB storage costs 7,000 yuan or $980.
