The Vivo X90 Pro smartphone, announced for China last November, has entered the international market. The device is distinguished by the 1-inch 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 sensor, which allows you to get high-quality images in low light conditions. He was accompanied by the base Vivo X90, that is, without the “Pro” prefix. But the even more advanced Vivo X90 Pro+ remained a China exclusive offering.
Announcing international versions of the flagships, Vivo has been surprisingly laconic about the release date for their sale outside of China. But it is well known that the smartphone will debut in Malaysia, where the X90 will cost the equivalent of $869 and the X90 Pro will cost $1174. The older model is not the first smartphone with a 1-inch sensor: Sony IMX989 has already received Xiaomi 12S Ultra and Xiaomi 13 Pro, but both have not yet gone on sale internationally. And that makes Vivo’s smartphone more interesting.
In addition to the large sensor, the manufacturer has installed a V2 chip in the smartphones in the line, which helps reduce noise when taking photos, improve quality in low light conditions and provide a more natural look when choosing the HDR format. Camera software features include a cinematic cine flare portrait effect with lens flare and a miniature tilt-shift style effect.
The Vivo X90 Pro also has a secondary 50-megapixel camera with a 50mm equivalent focal length for portraits and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The X90 and X90 Pro smartphones are powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 processor and offer 8GB or 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. 120W wired charging is supported, while the Pro version also offers 50W wireless charging – the former fully charges the battery in half an hour. The OLED display for each of the models has a diagonal of 6.78 inches with a resolution of 2800 × 1260 pixels (QHD+ format) and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The international version is black only with a vegan leather texture on the case back available. The housing is IP68 certified.
