Vivo is the first smartphone maker to the market with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 device, the Vivo X90 Pro+- Technology News, Firstpost


The world’s first smartphone with the all-new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will be the Vivo X90 Pro+. While the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC will power most of the flagship Android phones that will launch in 2023, Vivo beats everyone and releases it before the new year when they launch the smartphone in China in early December this year.

Looking at the specs available from online sources, we see that the Vivo X90 Pro+ gets a 6.78-inch, 3200×1440, OLED display with support for a 120HZ refresh rate. The device gets up to 12GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage and a 4700mAh battery with support for 80W fast charging, and a rare signature of Qualcomm’s super-sized 3D Sonic Max in-display fingerprint sensor. We also get 50W wireless charging.

The cameras are also very large, with Sony’s 1-inch IMX989 sensor on the front, along with a 50MP portrait camera, a 48MP ultrawide and a 64MP 3.5x telephoto. The cameras have been developed together with Zeiss and seem to be quite solid. In fact, Vivo is so confident with cameras on this smartphone, especially about that 1-inch Sony sensor, that Vivo calls it the “King of One Inch sensors”. Although the Vivo X90 Pro+ is not the first to come out with a Sony IMX989 sensor, Vivo has provided it with several improvements that make it special.

Vivo’s range of software features such as horizon correction, lens flare portrait mode, astrophotography mode and 100x hybrid zoom further round out the camera setup. The phone can also shoot 8K videos at 30 fps, with support for Dolby Vision and LOG10. The company has equipped the phone with its V2 image processing ISP. It features 45 MB of SRAM and delivers 16 TOPS per watt of performance.

As for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and what it enables, users get UFS 4.0 storage, a new, faster flash storage standard capable of reaching 4,200 MBps read speeds and 2,800 MBps write speeds. We can also expect Wi-Fi 7 support. However, we’re not sure if the Vivo X90 Pro+ gets the latest bells and whistles from the new SoC
