Vivo credits joint R&D for latest flagship features


Vivo unveiled its upcoming flagship series in China and promoted the X90 series as its strongest offering to date, based on design improvements over previous devices and joint R&D with key vendors.

At a Chinese-language event broadcast on the Weibo social network, Vivo indicated that it had jointly worked on chip development and OS customization, with specialist Zeiss working on imaging technology.

At the event, Vivo showcased its three new smartphones, the standard X90, X90 Pro, and X90 Pro+, alongside the Vivo TW3, describing it as its “first true Hi-Fi wireless headphones.”

Vivo’s latest smartphones pack a Mediatek Dimensity 9200 chipset and run on the vendor’s Origin OS3, which is based on Android.

The trio of handsets come with batteries of between 4700 mAh and 4870 mAh depending on the model and have 6.78-inch screens.

The more expensive models have several improvements in hardware and software, including in the camera, where the Pro+ has a 64MP main camera compared to 50MP on the standard release.

In addition to the hardware, Vivo highlighted several imaging software features developed to enhance video and photos. The handsets also sport cooling technology to improve longevity of use.

The most expensive version retails from CNY 6,499 ($910), with the Pro starting at just under CNY 5,000 and the standard X90 at CNY 3,699. Prices are for the lowest memory options available in each tier.

Orders for the X90 and X90 Pro are open immediately, with the highest-spec device following on November 28.
