The Vivo X80 series gets an official launch date amid a slew of design and camera-spec leaks

The Vivo X80 series has leaked in allegedly fine detail by now, particularly in terms of to how the premium mid-range smartphones and their supposedly pro-grade cameras are destined to look and act. This may be why the OEM has now decided to announce the date on when these Zeiss-branded devices are set to launch.

The Vivo X80 series is tipped to launch with a camera hump much like that of the flagship X Note and X Fold, albeit with a slightly different arrangement of lenses. In fact, the latest leak on the subject suggest that even the most 'vanilla' X80 will come with a long rear-panel window, within which an off-center round hump contains its main sensors. They are found in a 2x2 configuration that supplants an upper-right lens with a Zeiss logo.

Therefore, the X80 has 3 main cameras, whereas its Pro counterpart (or counterparts?) has an additional, square periscope lens, tucked into 1 corner of the main black glass window. The base model may have larger lenses in its circle, thereby hinting at different specs compared to any Pro versions that might emerge.

The most recent "Vivo X80 poster" leak suggests that the OEM intends to market the phones as capable of "professional photography", thanks to attributes such as "1.57-3.4 OIS", now also allegedly joined by cryptic references to "1/1.3 GNV". Finally, the X80s are now thought to launch in an almost cyan-like blue and in orange, as well as the black and green finishes spotted previously.

Vivo may have gotten sick of this profusion of leaks, as it has now gone ahead and confirmed that the X80 series will debut on April 25, 2022 in China, as suspected earlier (and in orange, too). The OEM is currently believed to introduce a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-based Pro+ flagship, as well as (the at least equally interesting-seeming) Dimensity 9000-powered Pro that may end up exclusive to the Chinese market, during this event.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
