Vivo X90 and X90 Pro launch with the new MediaTek Dimensity 9200 SoC, Zeiss-tuned cameras and 120Hz AMOLED displays


Vivo today launched the new and extremely premium X90 Pro+ Android 13 smartphone with the latest flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor. However, there’s also an X90 and an X90 Pro poised to turn heads with the potentially similar MediaTek Dimensity 9200 in very similar updated designs.

The two non-Plus smartphones may not have anything like the latest advanced E6 display tech; However, Vivo claims that their new 6.78-inch FHD+ Q9 AMOLED panels from BOE are competitive enough, with their HDR10+ support, 120 Hz refresh rate, 2,160 Hz PWM dimming, and 1,300 nit brightness in the Pro version.

The vanilla X90 also lacks the 1-inch mobile camera status, while the Pro combines its trendy main sensor with 2 types of autofocus (phase detection and laser) and OIS, not to mention a 50MP telephoto lens and a 12MP ultra-wide angle shooter.

They are marketed as further enhanced with the V2 coprocessor, which enhances the Dimensity 9200’s neural processing, performance, and power efficiency while delivering the results of the OEM’s brand partnership. It can be found in the entire X90 range, even in the vanilla model.

Accordingly, even the X90 upgrades to new Zeiss Pixel Shift, Flare Portrait and Natural Color settings, not to mention the same T* coating found on the Pro variants IMX989 sensor for its own main camera , a “VCS” version of the Sony IMX866 exclusive to Vivo. The X90 and X90 Pro also share 120W fast charging, although the Pro has additional 50W wireless charging capabilities for itself.

The X90, contrary to reports, is also the only member of the series to offer an entry-level 8GB RAM/128GB SKU and has three colorways for the 2 of the Pro models. It brings the starting price of the X90 down to 3,699 Yuan (~US$517), while the base 8/256GB model of the Pro is set at 4,999 Yuan (~US$700). They are available for pre-order in their native Chinese market as of now, with no mention of international availability as of yet.
