Flagship specs and a vibrant red color are in the cards
Vivo may not be a widely recognized brand in the United States, but its flagship offerings like the X80 Pro we reviewed earlier this year have helped the brand cement its reputation as a major league player in South Asian markets like China and India. The brand has now confirmed the official launch date for the next-generation Vivo X90 series on a Chinese social media platform.
In a recent Weibo post, Vivo announced that the X90 series will be disappearing in China on November 22. The lineup is expected to include the Vivo X90, X90 Pro, and X90 Pro Plus. Citing information from tipster Ishan Agarwal, Pricebaba reports that the base variant X90 will come in four RAM and storage configurations: 8GB/128GB, 8GB/256GB, 12GB/256GB, and 12GB/512GB. The phone should be finished in black, blue and red.
The X90 Pro is expected to borrow all of the X90’s storage and RAM configurations, saving the lowest-spec option with 8GB of memory and 128GB of internal storage. Like its (probably) cheaper stablemate, it is also expected to have black and red color options and a MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC under the hood. Meanwhile, the flagship X90 Pro Plus shares color options with the X90 Pro, featuring only the two storage configurations with 12GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor.
The video teased on Weibo suggests that at least one of the X90 series phones could feature a quad rear camera with Zeiss optics, possibly with a variable diaphragm on one lens. In addition, the red variant of the X90 could have a premium leather texture on the back panel.
All things considered, the Vivo X90 Pro looks like a promising flagship phone. Unfortunately, for now, there’s no news on BBK Group’s plans to bring the phone to the US or launch it in markets outside of China. The latter could be a possibility, but we cannot say for sure.
