A new leak suggests that Vivo will launch the Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro and Vivo X60 Pro+ on December 28. One of the three devices is confirmed to feature a 120Hz AMOLED panel and support for 33W fast charging. The Samsung Exynos 1080 SoC is also expected to make its debut alongside the smartphones.

The Vivo X60 series has been in the spotlight for quite some time now. Not only is it the world's first-ever smartphone to run a Samsung Exynos 1080 chipset, but it is also touted to come with some impressive specifications like a 120Hz high-refresh-rate AMOLED screen and 33W fast charging. The company is also expected to launch its new Android Fork- Origin OS-alongside the Vivo X60 series. A new leak suggests that Vivo plans on releasing the smartphones on December 28 2020.

Digital Chat Station has received information that Vivo plans on stealing some of the Xiaomi Mi 11 series' thunder by launching the Vivo X60 at around the same time. However, its specifications are a lot more tepid compared to what Xiaomi has in store for us. The lineup will allegedly consist of three devices, namely the Vivo X60, Vivo X60 Pro, and Vivo X60 Pro+. If its predecessor is anything to go by, all three variants may ship with different SoCs. The Exynos 1080 will very likely be reserved for the top-of-the-line model. One can only hope that Vivo proves us wrong and uses the same chipset across the board. 

It'll be interesting to see how the Exynos 1080-powered Vivo X60 Pro performs against similarly-priced offerings. Early benchmark results painted a rosy picture of the chipset, and that will only get better on a retail version of the smartphone. It is not often that we get to see an alleged 'mid-range' SoC use a 1+3+4 core configuration. The Exynos 1080's success should drive the likes of Qualcomm and MediaTek to release similarly-specced offerings.
